Re: First time attendee suggestions?

Take a deep breath before you walk into the Dealers Rooms. You will be overwhelmed. I normally walk around the rooms at least once before deciding on what to buy. Don't be disheartened when you look at the quality of models in the Contest Room. This show is the cream of the crop when it comes to Sci...

We used to bring a portable gas grill but for some reason they didn't like us using it on the concrete patio...

Definitely bring cash even though many, if not all the vendors accept credit cards.

Well, seeing as though there are roughly 6-8 model shows in my area a year, and roughly six to eight total Sci-fi kits on the tables, I am perfectly happy WonderFest is the way it is. Tell your IPMS friends to go, and see how it feels when the shoe is on the other foot. :twisted: A few years back I...

Yes, they should work just fine since there's only 2 connections (positive and negative).

I've used Paul's LED tape on several of my builds and have had good success running them on 9V.

About 3 hours according to Google maps.

I got to visit the AF Museum when I was at the Columbus IPMS Nats a few years back. Even got to see the Presidential and R&D aircraft on WPAFB. They were crammed in a hangar and we got to walk right up to them!

Friday Class - Something Different

With Wonderfest rapidly approaching, TAG Team and Iwata will again be offering a Friday Paint Class. This year, instead of doing DINO 101, we will be doing something a little different. This year we are focusing on the idea that it's not what you start with, it's what you do with it. We will start w...

Yep, Team 'Hammered Arse' (Matt Quiroz,, Steve Carricato, Robert Feuilerat) won 'Best Use of Greeblies' and "Iron Modeler' this year. Congrats boys!

While I love the creativity that goes into these builds, the descriptions given by the teams are hilarious!

Paul,
As John stated, we'll provide all the equipment. If you want to bring your airbrush, that's fine. For others planning on bringing non-Iwata airbrushes, please bring an adaptor or your hose to attach to the CO2 system.
