Quite a few folks made it to Havre de Grace this year for MauraderCon, we even recruited a new member!
We had 6 entries for our Big Bomber Build display - a big thank you to John, Joe, Whitey, Mike, Collin, Tim and of course Bene who organized us and kept the heat on to finish.
Looking at the above display, what ONE THING sticks out???? Who are these people? They make some great models and folks came by to ask lots of questions about techniques and details, but the small white page with a fine tip penned name on it was hard for many modelers to see. More on that later...
In fact, this seems so successful that some of there discussed repeating a display like this for the three major shows in our region:
- IPMS Richmond - February
- IPMS NoVa - April
- MarauderCon - November
More specifically, we could display one of our themes plus some other kits to show off our skills. One strong recommendation is to move our May Yellow Wings group build of the Monogram F11C-2 squadron to April and display it at the NoVa show.
John also brought some of his figures to round out the display.
Tim's He-111 late Battle of Britain / Night Blitz
Whitey's PB4Y-1 in late war markings; lots of folks really liked it, but then again it did earn some metal at the Nats this year...
Collin's B-25 -- folks asked lots of questions regarding the Prop Blur props.
Joe's JRM-1. Lots of comments on the uniqueness of this aircraft. Many didn't realize the B-26 served with the USN/USMC in Naval colors.
John's B-17. This got lots of comments but then again it was a winner in the past.
