MFCA Show - May 2006

A pleasant day was spent taking photos, seeing old friends, meeting Armorama.com members and picking up a few items from the hundred or so vendors present.

As the photos show, the MFCA isn't just for figures, as many excellent aircraft, armor, and ships made an appearance.

This year "Grand Master" Andrei Korbanics did a retrospective of his work. A totally amazing display of not only original sculptures (Figures) though the years, but paintings, 1/72 aircraft, and flight jacket artwork.

Editor's note: This is a small selection of pictures from the show. A further 200+ pictures can be found HERE

About the Author

About Dave O'Meara (Grumpyoldman)

I'm rewriting this in a much more humoristic way, to help over inflate my ego, and place my self on a pedestal, because I don't have a life, and plastic models are the only thing I live for. I plead guilty as charged to excessive babble, light hearted humor, and continued encouragement to youngsters...


Lots of great photo's. Thanks Dave

Thanks Rudi, your editing made me sound actually intelligent. :-) :-) The pleasue was all mine guys, glad you like the photos. (I admit, I still need some practice in this area.)

Nice pix Dave: Just some very inspirational work. I marveled at how the artist was able to paint the white dress of Mrs. Hamilton and the white breeches of Lord Nelson, so well. Perhaps an air brush? Thanks again,

Dave, thanks for getiing the pics posted. You got some that I missed. That piece was even more stunning in person. Nelson's sash caught light and had sheen like really fine silk and the broach on his hat had sparkly effects like the diamonds that were in the real thing. One of my club mates who studied Nelson pointed these things out to me. The jewels on Mrs. Hamilton, likewise, looked like real life miniature gemstones.

Great pictures Dave. You definitely managed to get more than I was able to do. Thanks for sharing them. Craig

I felt bad about having to leave before the awards though, but with a bad back, bad legs, and bad lungs, I was a hurtin' little oldman by the end of the day, and facing a 2 hour drive before relief, which turn into 3 hours since we got lost on the way back..... but did a wonderful tour of downtown Philly along the way home....... which explains the extra hour...... :-) Next year I drive down for the week end.... getting old ya know..... :-) :-)
