2017 IPMS Nationals Winners

Here is the slideshow that shows all of the winners from the 2017 IPMS USA Nationals in Omaha, Nebraska.  Big Thanks to John Heck and Randy Ray for doing the slideshow this year.

This is the slide show from the awards presentation. The winners are posted in the reverse order – after the slide with the name of the category next model is the third place winner then second and then first.

F-14s

This post is dedicated to one of the most distinctive naval fighters of all time – F-14.  We’ve added two walkarounds of the aircraft itself – one of the early production YF-14A Tomcat from March Field Air Museum in Riverside, CA and a regular F-14A Tomcat from USS Hornet in Alameda, CA.  We’ve also posted photos of the two weapons used by the F-14 –  AIM-9M Sidewinder and  AIM-7M Sparrow, both from the F-14 on board the USS Hornet.

Two from France and two from New Zealand

Here are four new artillery albums from two different countries.  Two guns from the France are the German 7.7cm Feldkanone 96 and the Soviet 120-HM 38 120mm Mortar, both from the Musée de l’Armée in Paris.  The two from New Zealand were photographed in Auckland – British 64pdr RML Coast-Defense Gun and Japanese 13.2mm Type 93 Anti-Aircraft Machine Gun from Auckland War Museum.
