Sci-Fi Model Making Classes at Jerseyfest

Post by moonlightdrive21 » Thu Jun 13, 2013 1:40 pm

Hey guys:

Two different "all day" Jerseyfest classes are occurring on Friday, September 13th at the Fairfield Crowne Plaza Hotel in New Jersey. They are being held right before the Jerseyfest vendor show, which starts on Saturday and goes into Sunday. Attendees must register for these classes in advance, registrations begin now and seats are limited. For costs and instructions on how to register for either class, go to http://jerseyfestfair.com/?page_id=2237. Below are descriptions of the classes:

1) Advanced Sci-Fi Vehicle Model Making Seminars
Experts will demonstrate advanced techniques and methods for building, painting and customizing resin and plastic Sci-Fi vehicle model kits, such as spaceships from Star Wars, Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, Aliens, etc.

Numerous topics will be presented in a series of professional demonstrations or slideshows in a relaxed setting that allows you to sit back and enjoy the experience and knowledge gained. Topics to be covered include:

- Painting and weathering spaceships (Michael “FichtenFoo” Fichtenmayer).
- Techniques for resin model building and making the most out of your kit stash (Michael Salzo).
- Implementing lighting kits in your models (Jason Eaton).
- Photoetching tutorial and demonstrations (Paul Bodensiek from ParaGrafix Modeling Systems)


2) Moebius Models “Make & Take” Class – Battlestar Galactica Viper Mk2 Kit
This class is designed to appeal to all modeler’s of all levels, from beginner to advanced level. All participants will receive a Moebius Models “Battlestar Galactica Viper Mk 2” plastic model kit that they will construct during the class while receiving guidance from expert modelers. All the supplies needed will be provided to students for use during the class.

The instructors are from the “The Collective”, which is a respected group of professional hobbyists who have over 30 years of modeling experience and have conducted various “make & take” classes at other shows. They also build and paint Sci-Fi kits on commission or sell them at shows to collectors.

Participants will have the freedom to go at their own pace and be as creative as they would like to be, or follow step-by-step instructions and receive guidance from our friendly instructors throughout the day.

Included in the program will be a tutorial on how to apply photoetch to the Viper kit by Paul Bodensiek from ParaGrafix Modeling Systems, which is the premier hobby company for photetech products. Paul’s session will allow attendees to learn about excellent techniques and products to make their kits ultra realistic looking and detailed.

This event will be like a big party for hobby enthusiasts and is meant to inspire participants while they have a fun filled day. In the end, besides all of the knowledge gained, everyone gets to walk out of the class with a great looking kit that they’re creating.

Hey guys:

We updated the Moebius "Make & Take" class so that if you already have the Moebius Viper Mk 2 Kit, you have the option of bringing and using your kit for this class, in which case the total cost of this "all day" class would be reduced to $20 per person. Otherwise, the cost of the class with kit and everything is $40. This is a great value considering the kit alone usually costs $30.00. We also added a photo etching tutorial to the agenda - all included with the class. See all the info here: http://jerseyfestfair.com/?page_id=315

Thanks,
Dave

FYI, I will be supporting the make and take event at Jerseyfest this year. If you are in the area I highly encourage you to attend, last years event was a blast and I am thrilled to have an event of this size closer to home than Kentuckey.
