I Just returned from the IPMS Orange Con and had a great time seeing my Paper Model friends and enjoying all of the very fine models. For more information and photos of the Plastics please visit the IPMS-OC website www.ipmsoc.org The following are the winners in the paper model category. From left to right are: J O Sutton with the model Rocket, I apologize for not remembering the name of the model. Second Place David T Oakmura (Aka DTO) with the Notre-Dame de Paris cathedral model Third Place to Bob Penikas for is Fiddlers Green Piper spotter The complete display of paper models Close-up of Bob’s Aircraft I entered my Modelik SdKfx 234-2 Puma in the plastics competition hoping for a third place or a Craftsmanship award. This club has some outstanding modelers and modelers from other clubs (some from other states) come to compete so I had my doubts about winning. Over 120 Armor models were entered in various categories I competed in the non-tracked armored category. To my surprise I won second place. Winning is nice but the real fun was the interest in a 1/25 scale Puma, I would ask if they had ever seen a 1/25 scale Puma and most thought that is was a resin model. Then I dropped the bomb and told them it was a card model the double takes were wonderful to behold..
