Leavenworth model contest around the corner

We had a good turn-out for the 17 August Leavenworth model club meeting, and want to welcome the new CGSC students who took time away from studying to join us.  Andy Prawitz gave us vacuforming and thermoforming demonstration, and I’m sure I wasn’t the only one looking at Mattel vacuform machines on eBay the next day.

IPMS Prison City Modelers contest awards
A small sample of the awards to be given out at the contest. Thanks to Rick Brownlee who designed the awards.

Biggest order of business was final prep for the 24 September model contest here in downtown Leavenworth.  Trophies have been ordered, but it isn’t too late if you want to sponsor a trophy package or be a vendor at the show.  More info is available on the contest pages.

We have one more meeting on 21 September before the contest.  Hope to see you there, and if not, then at the contest on Saturday, 24 September.

If you have noticed the banners on the club site, they are photos taken by some of our members.  Brooks Lyles contributed the photo of the P-38 that has been up the last month, and John Curatola took the inflight photo of the B-17 engines when the aricraft visited Kansas City in 2009.  Thanks to both of them for sharing.
