Noreastcon 2016 Dates and Location Announced

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 …


Noreastcon 2015 Photos – Get Inspired Again

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.

Unofficial Social Hour, Anyone?

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.

Upcoming Shows

Sanford Cup Competition and BBQ

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!
