If you’re like many of your fellow modelers, you’re burning the candle at both ends trying to get new models ready for display at RPM Chicagoland. Some are even working on the 2016 Mini-Kits trying to finish those models for display.
We welcome your models! All scales are welcome, in progress and finished. Been casting new parts for a boxcar? Bring your masters and molds to show off. Been drafting artwork for new photo etched parts? Bring parts and details. RPM is all about sharing tips, techniques, and what you’ve been working on.
Eric Hansmann has once again provided a PDF model card. If you want to fill this out and print ahead of time, you can fill it right out on the editable PDF. We’ll also have cards available at the event, but only if you have good handwriting! (grin!)

As an incentive to bring models, we’ll once again be providing extra door prize tickets for display models. One ticket per display item, max of 10 tickets per attendee.
So pack them up safe and bring them to share!
RE John Greene’s Branchline Heavyweight clinic, how do we sign up and should we bring our own kits? What if we have a different configuration BL kit?
John Greene will provide the kit. Sign up will be at the registration table. The cost for participation will be $15.00. BCW will supply kits, glue and sanding boards. Modeler needs to supply side cutting nippers, tweezers and obtivisors if needed.
