Welcome to the fourm.

 

Don't know about model shows in that area. BUT in june you have the World War II Weekend in Reading.  An absoluelty great show of flying wwii aircraft.  When they are on the groung they in the wide open... not roped off.

Where did you move from?

My clubs show, MosquitoCon, is on April 5 in Wayne, NJ.  Doable since it ius under 3 hours .

I moved from Garfield, NJ. I have been to the past 6 shows in Wayne. I will not miss this years show either, besides, I can see family while up there!

 

I can't find any shows around here - near Lancaster. Too bad, I would go to both !

 

THnx for the info. on the Weekend in Reading, I will try to find a site with more info.

 

lol you are probably in the background of some of my pictures from past MosquitoCons !

Hi Crane, and welcome to sunny Central PA. I'm in Harrisburg.

There's not really much in this area. I attended a show a few years back at the Holiday Inn near the Turpike interchange with I-83. The following year however, the show was cancelled. I don't know of any shows nearby in the past two or three years.

Regards,

Thank you for the info. The weekend for the WWII show is my birthday, and I have Monday off, so I will be there !!!

 

BTW, I made it to MosquitoCon. It was my 7th year attended in a row !!! And it was awesome, one of the biggest turn outs I can remember. I think they announced over 355 entries while I was there. I took over 600 pics and I am now thinking about making it to the Nationals, ( I have never been to one ). I got two Has. FW-190 kits for $30.

You're about 53 miles from Wilmington DE where on the weekend of the 25-25 April MFCA will be holding their 67th annual figure show. There's some amror as well and many vendors. This is one of the biggest shows in the east for figures. Some  of the best figure painter and diorama builders in the world attend this show each year. Here's a link to some of the stuff that was there last year.

Remember, if the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.

Do you know if there are any shows anywhere closer to the east side of PA, more along the lines of within driving distance of Philly?

Smeagol, I'd be happy to find a hobby store over here.  There are only 2 within the city limits.  If you find out about any let me know.  I'll also try to keep you posted.

Those would be the 2 I was talking about.  There is also AAA hobbies in NJ.  It's Stevens International Store.  It's not too far over the bridge.

I went there before but got turned off when I say that they only had like 2 gundam kits (before I was into scale) and they were almost tripple the list price.

 

I wouldnt even visit any of the stores around if it wernt for paint, which I get at allied hobbies, the rest of their stock is either the same stuff they had two buildings ago, or over priced.
