The Richmond Chapter of the IPMS is holding a scale model show and contest in Richmond, VA, on Saturday, February 23, 2013.  It is called the Old Dominion Open and it will be held at Richmond International Speedway in the Henrico Hall.  The Hampton Roads Ship Model Society is sponsoring the two wooden ship model classes and the Best Maritime award.  In addition to the hundreds of models of all types, there will be over 150 vendor tables selling every type of modeling supplies and kits. For more information, please check out the following website: http://www.ipmsrichm...rg/contest.html

 

Last year I saw several members from MSW and I hope to see more forum members at this year's event. Last year, a wooden model of a Friendship Sloop took the Best in Show Award.  I have attached some pictures of models from the 2012 show:

Thank you for posting the pictures. I was there last year but couldn't make it this year since I am out of the country. By any chance any more pictures?

Joe,

 

Those pictures were from last year's show.  The show is this Saturday and I will try to post pictures on Sunday.  I am really amazed at what the modeler's are doing with plastic and resin, but it is the wooden ship models that always seem to draw the most attention.

Darn.  I just saw this on Sunday afternoon.  I'm only two hours away. I could have spent the weekend looking at models! :(

The IPMS Old Dominion Open was held on Saturday, February 23, 2013.  The day was cold and damp with some ice and sleet in the early hours of the day.  The weather was blamed for keeping the attendance and entries down, but there were still a lot of entries in the show.  The number of vendors were also down from past years but there were many bargins to be found.

 

Here are some pictures from the show:

Here is a 1:16 scale Panart Armed Launch built by Ulrich Guenther.  This model took first place in the Wooden Ship Model Sail Powered Class and also took home the Best Maritime Model Award.

And finally, our Club table and some of our members.

It was a fun event.  We talked ship modeling all day and we may have recruited some new MSW members.  We are looking forward to next years event.

Thank you for posting all these wonderful pictures. I wished I could have attended the event in person.

 

Montani semper liberi. Happy modeling to all and every one of you.

Ryland - great pictures.  thanks for posting.  hopefully we can get some more club members to bring their models next year.  I'm a little jealous of the plastic modelers- they do beautiful work, and it looks way easier to get a model plane or car to the show than a fully rigged ship model.

Thanks for posting those, Ryland.  I wish I lived about 1500 miles closer.

I know that there is some interest in the Trumpter 1:200 Arizona model, so I thought that I would post some photos of two models that were in the IPMS Richmond show.
