It's a great time of year to bring the Family for a few days at the Beach!


Beachcon 2023

Grand Strand Scale Modelers IPMS would like to thank all those who attended and staffed BeachCon23. The turnout was fantastic and went well beyond expectations. This was our first model contest as a club. So, you can imagine all the things that could go wrong. Our contest next year will be even better. We are taking the lessons learned from this contest and will be applying them as we move forward to future shows
We had over 80 entrants with 417 models on the tables. The work I saw was amazing. Keep on modeling and see you next year.
