IPSM Space Coast ModelFEST 2018 (pic heavy)

Postby slawton » Fri Apr 06, 2018 2:20 pm

ModelFest 2018-- hey, something local! I'll probably be there tomorrow afternoon and wondering if I might see any other members there.

I know its not Trek-centric, but I'll snap a few pics anyways.

Just got back. Here's what I picked up:
Score.jpg

I got the battleships Missouri and Arizona from Ernie Boyette for $15 a piece. I had these models when I was a kid and they represent bookend battleships from WWII. I got the Challenger Tank from Modelgeeks for my son for $15. I also collected a Romulan stand and ship, a Tholian ship and nacelles from Ugh models. Lastly, the Enterprise set from CultTvMan.

Nice haul, slawton!

How many models were entered?

Did you ever anything? If so, did you place?

I didn't count - maybe around 200 or so models were on display.

No, I did not enter. They hadn't judged the models before I had left. I put my vote for people's choice toward a sci-fi model (of course), a Star Wars bay with an A-Wing and Y-wing that had lighting even going towards the fighters control panel.

I took a bunch of pictures, but assumed this audience would like to see the Trek kits. Here are some more of those from one group
1.jpg

A 1/650 Saladin class:

Notice the shuttle in the bay:

Don't go in there! Believe it's 1/2700 scale.

1/650 Constitution &1/1000 Lynch classes:

Another view

Another group from the back (all 1/537 scale):

A kit-bash Reliant:

A standard Reliant:

A Constellation variant:

Here's what I got from Ugh (Romulan base, 1/2500 Tholian, 1/2500 nacelle pack & 1/2500 Romulan):
ugh.jpg

Here's their table, bases & stuff (my Romulan was sort of bland compared to the Feds):
ugh1.jpg

Continued, showing more of their stuff (note the space station is in clear for easy lighting):
ugh2.jpg

Continued again (lots of 1/1000 scale stuff):
ugh3.jpg


I've posted what I though you'd be most interest in, but I have other pictures (tanks, cars, planes, ships, dioramas, figures, etc.). Let me know if there is any interest and I'll post more...
