Model Con 419 IPMS Model Show

April 21, 2024 · in Show Reports · · 5 · 420

Model Con 419 was held yesterday at the Quality Inn in Perrysburg, Ohio. The show was a collaboration between the Fremont KitBashers and the Plastic Modelers. This was the first show in the Toledo area since 2018, for those wondering 419 is the local telephone area code and the show was part of a series of events in the greater Toledo area. Being the first show in a while it was on the smaller side. Big Burel's BBQ food truck was on hand. Everything wrapped up early, with many venders packing up around lunch time, and judging was completed by 3:00.

  1. Welcome back to the show circuit. These events do not just happen by themselves; a lot of planning, hard work and effort goes into them. Most of all, these shows display a commitment by club members, who give their time and generosity to make the event happen.
    I am in IPMS Region 9 (Centtral California) so I did not make it to your show. From the pix tat you posted, it looks like a lot of quality models were on the tables.

    We can never have enough model contests. Welcome back.
