For the next couple of days I will spotlight some of my favorites. Feel free to take a look at the online Photobucket album at http://s958.photobucket.com/user/a172ndguy/library/2013%20IPMS-Seattle%20Spring%20Show
Be advised that there are, in addition to all the 1:72 models, some 1:48 armor I shot for a friend and the occasional 1:35 armor bit that has slipped in. The categories that were uncommonly heavy this year were cars and, of all things, Gundam mechs. Large scale kits were missing in action a the beginning of the day, but by the end of registration had filled in pretty well. Armor seemed maybe a bit down as well.
There seemed to be a lot of people carrying newly purchased kits, so I have to assume the vendors did all right too. If I get an official number of entries, I'll post it later. Eventually, IPMS-Seattle will have its own set of photos of the entries, including of course the categories I don't pay much attention to.
My personal favorite - and I should stress that these are all personal favorites, and not necessarily related to their judging value - was an Anigrand Boeing Clipper.
Next is a T-45 Goshawk in 100th anniversary markings.
A Mach 2 Coronado.
And finally for today, a view of the crowd scene. More tomorrow.
