Welcome to The ModelGeeks Podcast. Well, Show and Contest season is upon us! Alright we’ve discussed model contests before here on the Geeks but let’s talk shows/contests from the perspective of being “in show season”! We’re in the midst of planning our first show down here in Pax River (PAXCON23), and we’re learning really quickly how much work goes into planning and running a successful, i.e. FUN, model show and contest. Call it a contest, call it a show we’re there to see what’s on the tables. Let’s leave judging off the table, and talk about what we like…and indeed dislike, about going to a model show with your buddies.
We’ll also give a run-down of what’s new out there in kits, aftermarket, upcoming shows, and other news around the hobby. We would like to thank all the listeners for the support you have given the show over the past year now. We hope to see you out and about as we hit some of the shows. If you can't make it to the shows then you can still interact with us through social media, Facebook, Instagram, and email.
We also want to thank each of our sponsors for their support. We are very lucky to have their support. When you have the time, pay a visit to their web sites, and have a look at their fine products.
