JAXCON 2014 is done!!

Recommended Posts

I want to invite all of you in the SE USA to come to Jaxcon 2014 on Saturday, Feb 1rst! Once more, it will be held at the UNF University Center here in Jacksonville FL. Here's a link to our website with complete info: www.ipms-firstcoast.com We've been averaging 400-500 models (100+ entrants) and hope to meet or exceed that again this year!

We have almost 100 categories for ALL types of plastic modeling. Besides the usual Best Of awards, we'll also have awards for the Best Detailed, the Best NMF, the Best Gloss Finish, and the Best Camo. We even have an Ace of Aces category where you can bring your past winners from other shows to compete against other past winners!

The vendors area is once more sold out (almost 60 tables). Among the usual guys selling their "stash", we'll have Victory Productions, John's Models, Moebius Models, the Kit Broker, Joy Decals, Tiger Productions, and Nautilus Models.

Jaxcon is also known for a great raffle, and this year should be no different! We already have 7 "large" (@$100) kits to raffle off: Revell 1/72 Gato sub, 3 1/350 Tamiya battleships (Yamato, Missouri, and Bismark), Trumpy 1/24 Mustang and 109G, and a Trumpy 1/32 Avenger. And, we haven't it hit up the local hobby shop for their contributions yet!

The facility is well lit, has a snack bar, an ATM on site, and plenty of free parking. Entry fee is only $15 for unlimited models ($10 for IPMS members) and $5 for juniors. Admission is free, if you merely wish to shop and admire the models on the tables!

I hope you can make plans to join us for the fun!
