For those of you in the SE USA, I want to invite you to come to Jacksonville FL on Saturday, Feb.8th for JAXCON 2020. We're the Florida Regional show this year, and we're going to kick things up a notch!

We've arranged to have Chris Mayer, a Battle of Britain blitz survivor speak to our attendees. Chris was the curator of the Green Cove Military Museum until his recent retirement, and is an expert on the BoB. He lived through the blitz as a school boy and will have some mementos and relics from the blitz to display and talk about. Chris spoke to our club last year and it was quite fascinating to hear a first hand account of both watching the BoB unfold overhead and also ducking the bombings.

Of course Jaxcon will still have ALL of the great things as in the past, our GSB contest where EVERY model has a chance for an award if it meets the standards, another sold out vendors area, our usual HUGE raffle with close to 200 items to be won, AND we'll also be taking pictures of models once more for submission to Fine Scale Modeler magazine! FSM published models from Jacon 2019 in 2 different editions, with over 30 of our attendees getting their models in those pages. That could be YOU in 2020!

If you haven't made it to Jaxcon yet, and you're within driving distance, you owe it to yourself to come join us for the fun! There'll be over 500 models on the tables! Out facility is carpeted, well lit, and has plenty of free parking. Best of all, if you just want to see the models and shop, it's FREE! All the info you need is on our website at: http://ipmsfirstcoast.org/jaxcon-2020-information.html

I hope you can plan to make it! Cheers!

Yet another successful Jaxcon is in the books! We had almost the exact some turnout , as last year...126 people entered the contest with 543 entries. We had a vendor from Ohio, and contestants from Virginia, the Carolinas, Miami (almost as far!), and even Canada (ok, he's on vacation, but WE count him!). I'll get some pics posted in the coming week!

Yeah, that is Steve! He's on these boards too, but doesn't post much. I had asked him to give you my regards. Glad you had such a great show!

Great pics Wayne! By the way, could you post a pic of your '70 Pro-Mod 'Cuda that won Best Detailed Model; and do you mind if I share your link elsewhere?
