OrangeCon 2022

Recommended Posts

Yesterday afternoon, IPMS Orange County hosted OrangeCon at a new venue this year, a DoubleTree Hotel in Buena Park, CA.  Nice venue, very close to everything you need.  Lighting was a little strange, coming solely from the chandeliers. Caused the white balance to get weird on a few photos.  Tons of great models on the tables in all scales. Mine didn't do well, but that's the nature of the game sometimes.

The Tomcat looks sort of strange to me.


The weathering done via splatter mask might be what's throwing you off. That was an interesting choice though.

Here is the funny part.


I don't think so. I was talking to others during the awards presentation, the sound system was a little weak, and I wasn't expecting to win so I wasn't paying attention. 


Pretty sure I didn't, competition was very good. But I definitely had a great time.

Great pictures Matt - thanks for posting.  I do wonder about that Phantom tail with Top Gun and the outdoor lavatory on the tailfin though - if genuine, what is the story behind it?
