Jammies welcomes you to WONDERFEST. Yeah, I should have spoken up a while back, but Wonderfest is the biggest Sci Fi modeling con in North America.


It's a neat little con, with (again) a focus on models, and a modeling contest. Folks come from around the globe to compete-- including FX pros from ILM, Vancover, and Japan.

Also, some of the models from Empire Strikes Back will be there, as will Star Wars (and KISS) artist Ken Kelly. Oh, and Lou Ferrigno. Yeah, that's not Star Wars related, but he is the HULK.

Last year, my pals here at the ForceCast forums cheered me on as I entered my own Star Wars models into the contest, and took home 2 medals! So, thank you FC community! I hope my 3 contest entries will bring me home some hardware again this year.

So, sorry about the late notice. But, this con goes from Saturday to Sunday here in the Bluegrass. If you are within a few hours drive, I think you will find it worth the trip.


Oh! Again, I want to truly thank EVERYONE for all there encouragement last year!

Just a follow up:

It was a really good con this year-- lots of cool models to look at, some great Star Wars art, and the 501st and the Mando Mercs were there in force (pun intended!).

My models took home 2 Merits, a sort of Honorable Mention.


But there were some awesome Star Wars kits in the contest as well that scored much higher:


And, some of the Studio models from Empire were there too:


On the personal note: The 501st were taking donations for one of their own who lost almost everything in the Nashville flood. I don't want to post too much without their permission but if you want to help, email the Mid-South Garrison.
It never fails to amaze me how caring Star Wars fans really are. Thanks for the views you all-- the FC family has always been good to me, and I hope to see you all at C5

"Impressive, most impressive"
Those models are fantastic, you should be proud!
Hope this isn't salt in the wound but that X-Wing that won was also great!

Clearly the Force is strong with you! Congrats again!

Hey jammies

I must say your models are fantastic. Congrats! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/cool.gif

They are made from scratch aren't they? The vaporator is a sparkling plug isn't it? Very nice.

And they are so original ... not "yet another Millenium Falcon" http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif
