Posted by Tim Kidwell on Tuesday, February 22, 2022 4:03 PM

Hi!

Heritagecon, Mount Hope, Ontario, Canada; Sunday, March 27 (DONE!)

April
AMPS, Newport News, VA; Friday and Saturday, April 8-9 (Update: We will not be able to attend this show in-person, but have worked out with the organizers to have photos taken at the show. Sorry for not being able to make it to AMPS this year, but other obligations arose and prevented travel.)
NNL Milwaukee, West Allis, WI; Saturday, April 9 (DONE!)
Indy Invitational Contest and Swap Meet 2022, April 16 (DONE!)

May
NNL North, Bloomington, MN; Sunday, May 22

If you're going to be at any of these, make sure to come by and say hi, and definitely point us in the direction of your model(s). I'll update this list as our schedules firm up.

Thanks!

Also, if you are a model show/contest organizer or know one, the pandemic cleared out our events calendar on the finescale.com. We're in the process of getting contests back on there. So please, visit https://finescale.com/events?page=post and make sure to post your event on the site. 

Thanks!

Hi Tim,

The W.A.M. 2022 model contest is being held in Oshkosh, WI on Nov. 5th.  Oshkosh is only an hour's drive north of you so I hope that you guys will be able to attend.

Hi Tom,

Please send me all the info or links you have for the 2022 show at tkidwell@kalmbach.com. And if you haven't already, please add WAM 2022 to the event calendar on finescale.com. We'll start getting the listings there back up and running.

Thanks!

Who can afford the gas, let alone a plane ticket?

Every show or contest is local to a club or group somewhere, albeit some lareger than others. While we can't make it to them all, it's good for people to know that they still exist, and we definitely want to support them by giving coverage when we can.

It looks like all of the local clubs (there are many here) in central North Carolina have just quit hosting contest events.

HeritageCon in Mount Hope, Ontario, Canada, was an incredible show! As the first show we've traveled to since the start of the pandemic, it did not disappoint. We're working on the photo gallery for the show and a video of the event from the show floor--basically, models, models, and more models! Just finished picking through all of the photos we shot, so now it's all about retouching, writing captions, and publishing them to the web. I'll post when the gallery goes live.

Next up is NNL Milwaukee, happening this Saturday. Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and the surrounding area plays host to many excellent scale modelers. Can't wait to see what the car guys have in store this year. Hope to see some of you there!

Hi Tim,

I just wanted you to know of another contest in our area.  It's on the first Saturday in May and is in Eagle River, WI.  It's put on by the Scale Model Phanattics.

Hi!

Aaron and I shot more than 50 models at the NNL Milwaukee show. So many incredible scale auto models. We should have the gallery and some video from the show up early next week.

We're headed down to the Indy Invitational today, so if you're in attendance, we'll see you tomorrow!
