A 1/48th Hasegawa A-4E

There were a lot more models, usual F-14's, AH-64 Apaches, Real nice biplanes too...There were a total of 900 plus models entered and over 50 vendors!!!  Meteor productions, Victory Models, AAA Hobbies, and many more.  It was a good show in all.  (This was the Region 2 contest of IPMS).  Only sad thing about the show was the LACK of JUNIOR entries!!!..Only 2!!!  We have to do a better job as adults and promote the hobby more aggressively to the juniors, or this hobby will be history as we all fade away!!

"Free Kuwait" A-4 Skyhawk

Hope you all enjoy the photos,
