The eventThe HeritageCon Model Show is an event organized by the IPMS Hamilton Model Club. The club makes its home in the city of Hamilton, Ontario, located at the Western shore of Lake Ontario. Each year the club hosts this show and it is one of the larger events in scale modeling in Canada. This event is the club’s fundraising activity for the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum (CWHM), which is where they are fortunate enough to meet and have their regular meetings. This year saw the eighth HeritageCon show held on Sunday the 9th of March in one of the museum hangars at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum in Hamilton, Ontario. Numerous vendors were on hand selling all forms of modelling related items as well as books and artistic works. Let’s also not forget about the opportunity to look at some 1:1 scale aircraft. A major part of the show program is the chance for modellers to enter, display and have their models judged in the hope that their work would be recognized and receive an award. There were ten major competition categories available including Aircraft, Military Vehicles, Automotive, Ships, Figures, Dioramas, Paper Models, Miscellaneous, Junior and Bantam. Each of these was in turn further subdivided into 70 individual subcategories. The number of subcategories varied from category to category but for each, a first, second and third prize award was available. This year there were also eight special categories where the prize was a distinctive trophy. There were no less than 13 subcategories devoted to “Armour” related subjects and one to armour dioramas.
