Noreastcon 2016 will be Hosted by the Long Island Scale Modeler’s Society on April 29-30 at the new Museum of American Armor in Old Bethpage, New York.
It’s too early for many details, but bookmark and visit the LISMS web site regularly for the details as they unfold. Plan now to attend Noreastcon 2016 at what promises to be an exciting venue, and of course, a continuation of the bonhomie that defines the spirit of Noreastcons past and IPMS/USA of today.
Get ready to build and enjoy!
We’ll see you there …
Checking out the competition is one of the best parts of attending a show. It’s a great opportunity to:
- Discover new techniques and share your own
- Learn historical background on a favorite (or obscure) subject
- Get inspired to go back to the bench and start—or finish—your next masterwork in plastic
Whether or not you attended Noreastcon 2015, take a few minutes now to browse our photo gallery and get inspired.

Here’s when you can get in to set up, enter models if you’re competing, check out all the entries, shop for cool stuff, and maybe bask in the limelight of victory.

If you’re coming into town Friday night before the show, and need a suggestion for a nearby place to meet up with friends before Noreastcon to get a bite to eat and talk plastic, we think you might want to consider O’Toole’s Restaurant Pub, which is just minutes from the Polish Community Center.
And as an added attraction, it’s right next door to the local HobbyTown which is open till 8:00 pm on Friday.
Pub food, friends, and hobby shops… It doesn’t get much better than that.
There’s no preregistration for the show, but take advantage of downloading the contest entry forms and filling them out ahead of time. They’re available on the Noreastcon 2015 page.
This Saturday, Nov. 8th, we have been invited to judge the Annual Fall Contest at HobbytownUSA at Kohl’s Plaza.
Club members willing to judge should come about 11:00-11:15 a.m.
Non-judges should think about entering.
Hope to see you there…
OK, links to PDFs of the rules and categories have been added to the Noreastcon page, but here they are now:
Contest registration and model entry forms won’t be far behind.
There is not much news since last Saturday’s Barbeque, but there are two events members should be aware of:
- Syrcon 29, held next Sunday, October 12th in Syracuse, New York. Here is the website.
- The following Saturday (October 18th) is our traditional last event of the year, HVHMG 2014, in Poughkeepsie, New York. Some of our members are renting two Club sales tables. Please contact Paul Jendzeizyk if you are interested and have not spoken to him. (356-9025). Table cost will be splitting equally amongst sellers.
Club members gathered at the home of President Filippone on Saturday, October 4, for the annual IPMS-NENY BBQ and Sanford Cup competition.
The weather was fine, the crisp fall air thick with the spirit of bonhomie and subtle hints of burning competitive desire.
Nine members entered models they had completed since last year’s BBQ. When the votes were tallied, Tim Burke’s 1/35 VW Reichspost delivery vehicle was proclaimed the winner. A fine time was had by all!
