Blizzcon, IPMS Eddie Rickenbacker Model Show 02/16/2019

February 17, 2019 · in Show Reports · · 11 · 2.4K

Had the privilege to attend the IPMS Columbus, Ohio model show where 486 models were on display. Some exceptional work for all to see plus lots of vendors, and some good deals to be had. Bonus was three iModelers' came to discuss and share incites on the word of plastic, and what are we going to do with our stashes. Left to right, Gary Sausmikat, yours truly, and Tim Melick. Enjoyable time and additional bonus was I took two Third Place Awards for my A-20B and the He-123. Hope you enjoy the pic.
