ASMS Annual Show & Contest

The Austin Scale Modeler's Society hosts an annual model show and contest - "The Capitol Classic".

The 2017 Austin Scale Modeler's Society Show and Contest was held on October 14 at the Travis County Expo Center. The theme for this year's contest was "Old Dog, New Tricks". Contestants submitted many amazing entries entries and, as usual, the quality of the work was excellent.

This year's Show Theme Award went to Paul Barrena for his American La France Transporter.

As in years past, the show featured a vendor area with hobby vendors from around the region, including Austin's own King's Hobbies and William's Brothers Model Products of Taylor, Texas.

The "make and take" program is always a hit with the kids, who are provided with a kit and given some materials and guidance from ASMS members.

And as always, lots of door prizes were given away and awards were presented to the "best of the best".

Thanks to our sponsors and to everyone who came and participated.

See you at our next contest on October 6, 2018! Keep checking here for the details.
