We are now just 4 weeks out from Wings & Wheels Modelers’ Valleycon 25 on 29 March at the Knights of Columbus Hall,460 Granby Rd. Chicopee MA. We are known for our large venue, with an upstairs room full of vendors and our contest dispay room in the well lit downstairs hall. We have again expanded our vending area to one wall of the display room to give our guests more options in purchases. We will have almost 70 vendor tables. Among our well known vendors are Rare Planes Detective, The Hobby Bunker, Sentinel Miniatures, Farina Enterprises, Birch Tree Enterprises, Craftec Hobbies, Amato’s Hobbies, Turn 4 Hobbies, Time Machine Hobbies, and HobbyWorld. Our contest features traditional IPMS style 1-2-3 judging for the automotive and aircraft categories. All other categories are judge by the so called Open System wherein your entry is judged on its own merits and you will be rewarded accordingly. We will again feature a Wargame Figure/Army class for those interested in that area who might feel intimidated at competing with more traditional figures. We have 14 special awards, including best Closed Wheel Competition Sports Car, Best Display, Best Groundwork, Best Female Figure and Best Auto Paint. We continue with a huge kit raffle. Some of the prizes include Meng’s M2A3 with full interior, Academy’s 1/35 AH-60L DAP, the Hobby Boss 1/48 P-61, the Fine Molds Jedi Starfighter, Tamiya’s F50 Ferrari, and Academy’s 1/700 RMS Titanic.
