ModelPalooza Orlando Show

Went to the ModelPalooza IPMS Orlando Show this weekend. It was a good show. A good selection of models on display and a bunch of vendors. I got a few new kits at good prices. I also had a few models win awards.

1/32 UH-34D conversion - Silver

M109A7 Paladin - Bronze

“The Green Zone” Diorama - Bronze

It was a fun weekend and I saw a few old friends as well.


Congrats. :+1: :+1:

Thanks guys.

I built “The Green Zone” dio quite a few years ago using the Trumpeter PMC in Iraq: VIP Security Guards figures and a die-cast 1/34 Escalade changed into an armored Suburban. I had never entered it into a show and was surprised when it won.

Here is the step-by-step.

Glad it went well and on the awards. Nice to see the UH-34D again and that it was placed. :+1:

Thanks Johnnie.

Congrats on the awards and very nice builds! On the M109A7, is that a conversion, or a complete kit of that subject?

Thanks Stik. It was a good weekend.

The M109A7 is a full kit by Panda. Panda is now out of business (ground side of Kitty Hawk). The kits can still be found on eBay though.

I did a build review of it at the old Armorama:
