It’s all in the books, folks. The Return of the Scale Model Show was a resounding success! It was very well attended, a large number of models were on the tables, and big fun was had by all. IPMS Santa Rosa would like to thank everyone involved: the contestants, the vendors, the judges, the spectators, the venue, the club members who made it happen, and the club members from adjacent clubs who helped make it happen. And, everyone else!
Now you can relive the adventure, in images. Navigate to our events gallery, Model Shows to see the images. It was so big, we had to divide it into two parts!
Here’s a little teaser:
Our next meeting will be on Monday, February 6th, 2023 at 7:00pm. We’re now holding the business meetings prior to the meeting at 6:00pm. We meet at Fundemonium: Expressway Center, 579 Rohnert Park Expy, Rohnert Park, CA 94928
Our theme this month is “Yout Oldest Model”. So dust off those ancient relics and bring them in to show off – finshed or in-progress, it doesn’t matter. If it’s old enough, we’ll all marvel at it with a gleam in our eyes. Except for the younger members, they’ll just look at us weird. This month’s demonstration is provided by Jack Riggar and covers painting a wood grain surface.
Can you hear it? The ringing of sleigh bells, or perhaps the cursing of a modeler that just had another gift stolen! Yes, it’s time again for the IPMS Santa Rosa Holiday Bash!
We’re gathering at Mountain Mike’s Pizza on Cleveland Ave on December 17th at 6pm. The club will provide the pizzas and soda for all who attend. If you’d prefer an adult beverage, beer and wine are available at the bar compliments of your own wallet. We’ll be having our annual “White Elephant” gift exchange as well. Each gift is limited to 3 steals and we play until the pile is gone. Each attendee should bring one gift, or more if you would like more chances at the pile.
A note on the gifts. Each gift should be approximately valued at $30, or if you want to spend more go for it! Please, do not bring any kits that have been started, missing parts, or in a condition you wouldn’t want to receive.
It’s going to be a blast, so we hope to see everyone there! Mountain Mike’s address: 3125 Cleveland Ave, Santa Rosa, CA 95403

Our theme this month is Weathered. So bring in those weathered models to show off, or bring the latest and greatest project on your bench. This month’s demonstration will cover scribing by Randy Bumgardner.
