2021 Indianapolis Roscoe Turner IPMS Show – 1/72 Scale Models

Yesterday marked the first IPMS show I was able to attend since the beginning of lockdowns.  Ironically the last show I attended was also hosted by the Indianapolis IPMS chapter over thirteen months ago.  The club moved the contest site to the Boone County Fairgrounds in Lebanon, Indiana.  The new venue provided ample space to spread out and increase the size of the contest and vendors’ areas and still provide for wide isles.  There was considerable pent-up demand, this was Indy IPMS’ biggest show on record with 119 vendor tables and 904 contest entries!  Everybody was happy to get out and had a great time.  Several categories were just overwhelmed, single engined aircraft in 1/72 and 1/48 scale each had over three dozen entries!  It was great to catch up with everyone and it was a fine day out!  This is just a sampling of what was on the tables.

  1. Well done! The last show I went to was in October of 2019… seems like a long time ago. But knowing that shows are starting up again actually lifts my sprits. Things are getting better! I’m happy you had a great time with all the show goers. And having the Moj on site just takes it up a notch. Those are some excellent models. Thanks for posting.

    1. Thanks, great to see you guys again! The show was a bit overwhelming after so long. Definitely some pent-up demand, I wonder if there are not several guys who have re-entered the hobby?
