IPMS Roscoe Turner Indianapolis Annual Model Show
Had an enjoyable day attending the annual Roscoe Turner model show in Indianapolis this Saturday. A very well attended show with over 600 models on display, plus plenty of vendors with good deals to be had. Below is just a small sample of some that caught my eye. Even more fun was meeting several iModelers for the first time. It was a pleasure to finally meet some of the folks whose work I’ve admired here on iModeler. Thanks Martin for creating one of the finest modelling sites on the world wide web, in some respects this site truly is a family.
Since none of the members I met weren’t in a Federal Witness Protection Program I had permission to post their mug shots which I like to refer as the iMod Squad. First pic going from left to right is Rick Wilkes and Juan Benitez. Second is Jeff Bailey and yours truly with the P-39 shirt. Great guys and together we could have talked about plastic for several more hours but the restaurant we were in had to close at 2PM and unfortunately they didn’t sell adult beverages. Good day was had by all, and bonus was I scored a 3th Place win with my P-40N and another 3th Place in Collections with my Allison Mustangs. They all are Accurate Miniature kits in 1/48 scale. Juan also scored some awards but since having a senior moment I can’t recall in what categories. Looking forward to attending again next year, hope you enjoy the pics.
