2010 IPMS-USA Nationals - The Armor/AFV Photos

  • move
We were treated to some excellent models at the 2010 show in Phoenix. Here are many of the armor/afv models on hand in the exhibition area and a few that graced the SIG tables and collections. A few shots sadly didn't make it due to focus and clarity issues, and there were a TON of great 1/72nd scale pieces that also aren't covered here simply due to space limitations on our storage drives and the limited time we had on Saturday. We will be publishing a more complete show/vendor report very soon so stay tuned! Enjoy the photos.

I started building models in 1971 when I was 6. My first model was a 1/32 P-40 Warhawk. Revell I believe. From there I moved onto the standard cars, Apollo spacecraft, and other kid orientated kits. I don't know what got me started on Armor. I must have seen a Monogram tank kit one day and said "Mom...

Someone with Silicon Valley (or using their gallery) published this: LINK I have to say kudos as well because this is a LOT of work based on number of winners and categories, etc. Also I read on another site that it's in order 3rd, 2nd, 1st. Cheers, Jim

Ahh... yes that piece was very impressive. I wish I had bumped into Jim at the show. I actually saw Jim Lewis for about 2 minutes and assumed I would see him again (sorry Jim!) but didn't. The photos of Jim's Stryker are on the last page (photos 6 & 7). Cheers, Jim
