USS Hornet Sea, Air & Space Museum, in conjunction with the International Plastic Modelers Society (IPMS) is proud to host the 2nd Annual Model Expo & Open Cockpit Day on Saturday November 17, 2018.
NOW HEAR THIS! NOW HEAR THIS!
Join us from 10am - 4pm on for an incredible day of artistic achievement, family fun & history aboard the USS Hornet!
During the event, modelers from around the state will showcase their artistic skills in a friendly, yet spirited competition presided over by local IPMS judges. Youth and adults, amateurs & professionals alike are encouraged to enter. The Hornet is lucky enough to have a new chapter created just for us, IPMS Grey Ghost. *Check back for the official Grey Ghost logo!*
In addition to standard competition categories like Best Small Aircraft, Best Military Vehicle, Best Science Fiction & Fantasy Subjects, IPMS Grey Ghost will be introducing 3 new categories just for this contest:
* Best Civilian Automotive Subject
* Best Real Space Subject
* Best Papercraft Subject
General Admission to the Museum, plus $1 per model gets you entered in the contest!
–BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!
Also onboard throughout the day will be a number of local & national vendors selling model kits, paints, tools & all the supplies necessary to build your next amazing creation.
Throughout the day, we will be raffling off prizes from local hobby shops, art supply stores & neighboring businesses. Don't forget to buy raffle tickets once you get onboard!
Ride in Clementine or Fifi!
Take a seat in one of our cockpits & experience firsthand what it was like to be a fighter pilot! A number of our docents are ex-Navy pilots & many will onboard to share their stories & lead tours of the ship.
Enjoy delicious sandwiches from the Grilled Cheez Guy!
Back by popular demand, Grilled Cheez Guy will be crafting toasted cheesy goodness from 11am-3pm on the Hangar Bay.
