ModelFEST 2018 Best in Show Winner
FAMO & Sd.Ah.116 by Al Kamrad
For March IPMS Space Coast we have our two bi-monthly meetings for the month (March 12th in Suntree and March 26th in Cocoa)
Several IPMS Space Coast members attended the JAXCON, Flight 19 Modelfest, and FAST shows during February and March. The members had a great time and many won awards for the beautiful models they brought and conversely spent too much money on the vendors (LOL!)
IPMS Space Coast Member Anthony Higgins displays the beautiful
Top 10 Award he received at the FAST Billetproof 2019 Model Car show
As for March there are no shows so to speak of. However, there are 2 shows on the weekend of April 6 & 7.
The 1st on that weekend is a Model Car Show hosted by the Florida West Coast Modelers. What is interesting is this show is being held in conjunction with NSRA Street Rod Nationals at the Florida State Fairgrounds so there will be plenty of 1/1 scale street and hot rods to look at at this show.
The 2nd show on that same weekend is the Pelikan 2019 show in Tampa. The show date has been moved up to April 6 & 7 as there was a scheduling snafu previously.. This is the Regional 11 contest for 2019.
Make your plans to join IPMS Space Coast members at any of these great events!
Details are in our calendar of events on this page!
In Further News ....
We are just beginning our planning for ModelFEST 2020 and as of now we are currently we are looking at date in the spring of 2020.
If any members want to be part of the planning committee for ModelFEST 2020 please let us know at one of our bi-monthly meetings. We can always use your help to make our show the best it can be.
