    Any idea if there will be vendors at the Three River show? Its a bit of a drive from State College...

    I was hoping to go but life has gotten too busy... Maybe next year...

    There has been talk about updating the Auto Categories at the IPMS Nationals, but I'm not convinced that will have much of an effect.

    I'm thinking more about what might be possible at a local model club (and maybe contest) level...

    So here is a question... what could IPMS/USA do to bring more auto modelers into the Society?

    Lotus 79 from Tamiya!
    Well, it appears that Tamiya is jumping on the Lotus parade by also producing a kit of the Lotus 79!

    It should be available in May. Hopefully, we'll hear more about Hasegawa's Lotus sometime soon.

    IPMS/USA Forums Open for Everyone...
    As of this evening registration to the IPMS/USA Forums open for anyone. Once you have registered, you will have access to the General Modeling section - there is an IPMS/USA member-only section for society business.

    At the moment the Forum Admin will need to approve all accounts, but that should be pretty quick, and it is a temporary situation; Dennis wants to get a feel of how many folks are joining. Once he does, approval will be automatic.

    For those who don't know, I was asked to take over as the IPMS/USA webmaster about 9 months ago... this is the first major change to how things are being run. And while I know that scale auto modelers (here in the US) don't always have warm feelings about IPMS, I would really like to see some changes in that area...

    Stop on by and register... we could use more F1 and race car modelers.
