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.


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.
