Report from the Nationals: Day One

AgapeModels forum member Jeff Adair is in Virginia Beach for all 4 days of the Nationals there, and has been gracious enough to volunteer to keep us all updated. Here is Jeff’s first day report, and a link to plenty of pics! Thanks Jeff, Jennifer and Billy!

Hello to all,

Well, today marked the first day of the IPMS US Nationals in Virginia Beach VA. And I thought I’d give you all a report for day one.

The vendor room and display room opened today at 2:00 PM, and Jennifer and I were there with bells on!

The convention center is a very beautiful place to hold the Nationals. We made a family vacation out of the whole trip and have been here since Saturday.

The vendors are great and seem to have every thing that you could need, And as always the models on display are all top notch (as you’ll see from the pictures). Dragon Con has some very cool items there as well.

I’ll be giving an update every night with a link to the Photobucket album for every one to see the pictures. I was only able to get about 1/4 of the way through the display models today so look for some more tomorrow. Sorry that a few of the pictures are a little out of focus.

Well enough of all that….ON TO THE PICTURES!!!

We sure wish you could all be here with us!!!

  1. Great pictures, Jeff!! But, whoever built the F7F #E62 must have built it to appear as it did right after TBM, Inc. painted it in 1972!! I NEVER saw it that clean and shiny!! LOL

    Thanks for posting these and keeping us updated!!

    God bless, YBIC,

  2. I appreciate that, Jeff.

    I do have a request, though. Could you stroll by the ‘Aerospace Modeler’ table and find out the status on the magazine is? They had stopped publishing due to illness and moving to new facilities but, were going to confer with their backers as to whether to continue with the magazine. According to the last report I read they were to know something at the Nats.

    I’d appreciate it, Bud!!

    YBIC,
    Randie
