Are there any model show/conventions in Oklahoma or maybe in Dallas Texas area?

Is there a website to perhaps look up this info?

Cheers,
Dustin

I'm just now reading this (sorry). There are several shows in the Dallas area each year, depending on what you are looking for.

MCMA has a model car show in March. There are general IPMS shows in May & September. Squadron has their Eaglequest in June. Reaper Miniatures also puts on a gaming/figure show each year.

You can check the IPMS-USA web site for a listing of IPMS shows around the country (http://www.ipmsusa.org/). You can check Squadron's and Reaper's web sites for info on their shows.

John, Mike,

Sorry that I'm just now seeing this!

Thank you for that info fellas!

John, I think I will come by! I'm a bit west of OKC, but I don't mind a small drive to meet some fellow model builders.

Dustin,
the next meeting is on 12 Dec at the 45th. Unfortunately I will not be there as my daughter graduates from the Brightest Orange in the NCAA at the same time as the meeting. Shoot me an e-mail at j_charvat(at)cox(dot)net and I will get any other info/contacts that you might need.
