    I visited IPMS Orange County for the February meeting this is a haunt of several of the Paper Modelers in Southern California. IPMS Orange County is one of the premier IPMS clubs in the western US, and they “tolerate†paper models.

    I entered the finished NSU Kettenkrad by Modelik and receved a first in paper models.

    Gil, I remember that Fine Styrene Modeling :roll: actually did show a card model in the Gallery Section one time. IIRC it was one of Roman's designs but I could be mistaken

    Several Master Paper Modelers belong to this club. David T. Okamura, Bob Penikas, (a past president of the club), Dan Reno (Delta 7), and Jason Sutton this is why they are supporting paper models. I have to admit that with this high level of modelers the club members are used to seeing good paper models and you don’t hear the “is that really paper?“ comment very often.
