Home of the modeling savants....Celebrating forty years of modeling fun, education, and history in 2024!

The Contest got off to a great start as the temperature was twenty degrees cooler than normal!  There was a good turnout from all three clubs…we had nine TRIADS enter the contest with three additional family members.  The food was great as usual.  It was great that Big Daddy Bridenstein was able to participate…AND WIN!!
Here is a photo of Mark Jahsan’s winning Small Category entry.  And it is tiny!  Amazing!!!  Not sure of the scale...1/350??  Note the wing braces!

On the homepage I said Seekman is a loser.  Not Doug Seekman…well…maybe….  ;-)  I’m talking about Seekman’s Appliances.  I call this “Young couple window shopping for their first refrigerator”.  This structure easily fits inside a 3-1/2” photo cube.

skill level 1.55's motorcycle...didn't stand a chance against the Pres!

Stan Carrier's beautiful Rally car!

Here is the boss man accepting the traveling trophy...which is headed back to Muskegon and the House of Hobbies!!

This is the thirteenth year for the Contest…and we think JR has won the Automotive category eight times!!!  What a talented modeler!!

Mark receiving his First Place beer mug!!

I have said, repeatedly, that Jerry’s tractor is amazing…and that I just love it.  So did the judges…it won!!!  Happy days!  So happy for Jerry and boy can I pick ‘em!

Stan Carrier's diorama...best one there but didn't win.  Bummer.

Tom Miller's M113.

Thanks to all who participated!!  TRIAD rocks!!  See ya at the July S&T!

Here are the TRIADS...with Alan Vandam MIA.  Good times!!

Here are Mark Beck's entries.  I though the foreground model was the best in the category.

Spencer's first figure...I thought it was going to win.

The following models are winners…just not at today’s Contest.

Spencer Kosc's beautiful Wildcat.  Note how the paint has been worn down to the zinc chromate...and then worn down to bare aluminum?  Great job!

Skill level 1.55 escaped with top honors for his 1/32 Corsair.  I can’t believe it!

Love that smile!
