Model Show and Make & Take
Plastic Model Make & Take: Interactive Video 2 Room, Governor’s Square 16
Sunday 11 am – 3 pm (or when we run out of kits, whichever happens first)
The annual scale model show and contest is located in Directors Row E, down the hall to the left of Hotel Check-In. The show contest is open to con members, volunteers, and staff.
Plastic Model Make & Takes are in Century Room, in the Tower Building on the Mezzanine Floor (above Dealers Room). Come build something!
Some things to know:
- This is an anime con, so please keep that in mind when selecting your entries. Science Fiction and Fantasy are welcome, as are models representing elements of Japanese culture.
- Photography is highly encouraged in the model room. Just be careful not to bump the tables or models with your costume or camera.
- Entrants are asked to pick up their entries and associated prizes on Sunday between 3 and 4 pm. IF you are unable to pick up at this time, PLEASE let the staff know at the time of entry that someone else will pick up for you.
- Model show staff will be doing demos of modeling techniques throughout the show. The schedule will be on the Panel listing, as well as in the Model Show room
