Leavenworth Prison City Modeler's Contest 2014
Sep 21, 2013

What a great contest our buddies over in Leavenworth put on every year. This year was no exception! The Prison City Modelers are an IPMS Chapter and, as such, display a high favoritism to things military, historical, and SciFi. But, they love a good car just like all of us. A record number of KC Slammers showed up and put a record number of entries out on the tables for the judges, fellow modelers, and the public to enjoy and admire. Our club members went home with lots of awards for their fantastic automotive models of all types.

It was held at the Heritage Center in downtown Leavenworth, Kansas - easy access and the perfect location for the event. Nice bright lighting so we could all see and enjoy the super details and skills on display in a wide variety of models. The weather was beautiful and it was a perfect morning and afternoon. Hot coffee, pop, doughnuts, sandwiches, and other treats were available for everyone. Shows like this are great because they give the modelers time to interact and talk with other modelers about the hobby. One guy there even had a 7-foot-long submarine "model" rigged for RC Control that actually performed all of the actions of a real submarine - even firing torpedoes!

I took the table shots early so the tables look kind of bare, but right before the noon registration deadline, it looked like they unloaded the "model bus" out front and the modelers were lined up outside the building to enter their models. By the time, all of those were out on the tables, each table was filled solid!

The KC Slammers Model Car Club recognizes and thank our model-building brothers and sisters over in Leavenworth for a great show, great location, and their hospitality. But, mostly we thank them all for being such great people!!

Great Plains IPMS Model Contest
Oct 30, 2010

Halloween weekend was the time for the KC Slammer's modelin' buddies over at the Great Plains IPMS Club to have their annual model contest and vendor fair in south Kansas City. They're a great club and always stage an equally great autumn show.

The show, like most general IPMS contests, had a decided lean toward non-automotive subjects, but the Great Plains bunch goes out of their way to make the car modelers feel welcome!

Here are some pictures of the contests; automotive themed entries because... hey, the KC Slammers are a decidedly automotive-themed IPMS club!

Wes Campell's truck model even took best of show this year!

We started the album out though with an absolutely GREAT figure whose presence summed up the entire Halloween weekend timing for the contest!

Mid-America Model Car Nationals 2010
Oct 9, 2010

Several of the Slammers (Phil, Steve, Bill B., Alyn, Chris, Cary, and Ellis) headed north on Saturday, Oct. 10, on a beautiful autumn day to attend this annual model car event.

The contest is staged by several of the major area vendors and also includes a major model competition with some serious trophies to be had.  Trophy winners from our club this year were Bill Barker, Steve Barnes, Alyn Loya, and Chris Lewis.

The event is unusal in the sense that is is put on by the vendors themselves.  As such, the vendors tables are full and center-stage with the model contest over to one side of the venue.  If you are seriously looking for someplace to lay down your cash, this is the show to be at!

A big Slammer "Thanks" go out to the great guys that stage this event every year.  Can't wait for NEXT October!!!

It was the 24th Annual Event this year. Another great show/contest/vendor sales as it is every year. This show is the first event of the model contest season and it's always a wonderful chnace to visit with modeling buddies and acquaintances.
Congrats go out to the Slammers that placed in the judging categories. The club had an excellent turnout of members that made the 3+ hour roadtrip north.

GSL 2009
Apr 23, 2009

Two KC Slammers, Bill Barker and Allen Smerchek, went to the 17th International GSL in Salt Lake City, Utah, on April 23-25. They had a blast and here are 467 pictures to prove it. They both say though that the greatest treat, beyond seeing all the great models, was getting to meet and greet all their fellow modelers from around the country and world.

The event is only held every other year so the next one is set for April, 2011. Maybe these pics will whet your appetite top make the trip then!
