In mid April IPMS/John Glenn and IPMS/Western Reserve combined forces to host the IPMS/USA Region IV convention at Lakeland Community College in Kirtland, Ohio. It is hard to judge the success of an event you host, but I hope everyone had fun. I was busy dealing with the money side of things and running around like a crazy person, but I still had time to take some pictures of the models. Below are a few of my favorites. On the plastic acquisition front, I was excited to pick up a Hasegawa Beaufighter Mk. I and a UMM razor saw. (I also bought a Revell Mirage III and a ProModeler Bf-109G. Yes it is the end of the world! I wonder if all the DSS guys will leave me along now that I own a 109? I kinda doubt it.) One of the highlights of the weekend was winning the new Airfix Canberra in the raffle (well actually Heather won it). It was also good to catch up with a few friends that I hadn't seen in a while.
