My model awards 1986-2016
I got into building plastic models with my son and a grandson in late 1977. We went to the 1986 IPMS/USA National Convention down in San Diego, California and we won some awards at the show. My son and grandson quit building models around 1990, so I went alone from then on to the shows. Year after year I went to local and national show’s and won more awards until I quit modeling in 2016. I kept a record on my computer as to the name of the contest, its’ location and my award. I wrote on the back of each trophy the models name that got the award. If I recall my memory correctly, I have 301 awards stored away in sealed plastic boxes since 2016 here in our rental home in Irvine, California; U.S.A.
These photos show some of my awards hanging on the walls of my so called model room.
