WELCOME to the Long Island Scale Model Society!
There is no December meeting at the library. The next club meeting will be on Monday, Jan. 22, 2024, at 7:30 pm at the Levittown Public Library, in meeting room A.
All of our regular monthly club meetings are at the Levittown Library usually on the third Monday of each month, unless the library is closed. The address and dates are listed on the left info column.
The club is planning on hosting next year’s IPMS Region One NoreastCon 52 show on Saturday, March 23, 2024, at the Freeport Recreational Center from 9 am to 4pm. The Special theme will be the 80th anniversary of the D-Day landings along the Normandy coast. Details to follow soon.
The RepLIcon 31 show was held on Saturday, March 25, 2023.
I just wanted to thank all the Long Island Modelers Society club members that volunteered during the show with setting up before the doors opened, working the admissions and registration tables, assisting the vendors set up, judging, manning the raffle table along with door security during the day. Without your hard work the show would have never happened.
I also wanted to thank all to the contest participants, the vendors and all the walk ins for making this year’s show so successful. Being one of the first shows of the year gives us the opportunity to see all the new work you’ve done over the winter months. There were certainly some incredible builds on the table this past Saturday. It was also great to see a bunch of folks I haven’t seen in quite a while and catch up with them during the day.
This year’s RepLIcon had 81 registered entries with 291 models entered in the contest.
Last a special thanks to Doug Tantillo, LISMS Treasury, with all the behind the scenes work required for the show. Plus, Rob Riviezzo as Head Judge along with dealing with all the headaches that come with the positions. Rob also was the M.C. for the awards presentation.
Again, thank you all and keep building!
