7th Annual SSCC Figurecon Recap



We had something for everyone at the 7th Annual SSCC Figurecon the weekend of November 15th and 16th in Ft. Thomas, Kentucky.

Our large club diorama devoted a 5' wide x 40' long table space to US troops advancing in eastern France during the Lorraine Campaign in WWII. We had several different smaller set ups featuring WWI, Guadalcanal, Vietnam, the Civil War, the Spanish-American War, Modern US and the 1:6th Hall of Armor display. Also on display were 1:1 WWII US, Vietnam and Modern uniforms, gear and weapons.

ENJOY!

Very nice looking stuff you and your group have put together. I always like seeing the dios and you guys have really done a super job with all of the figs and vehicles that were present.

Great recap by Point Man as always. In spite of the weather this year was a lot of fun. Hoping to take more time off next year to hang out.

Re: 7th Annual SSCC Figurecon Recap

Thanks for the link Fred! The show looked like a great time! The amount of figures and vehicles there for the one show looked impressive. The dios all looked great and your club seems to be going strong with memebers, both young and old. Your two younger members sound like a great influx of new blood intot he hobby. Thanks for sharing!

Re: 7th Annual SSCC Figurecon Recap

Thanks for the compliments, guys! Glad everyone liked it!

We'd love to have anyone from the boards come to the shows! We really like talking to other hobbyists!

The Dutchman - HAHA! We have ten times that in Germans… It's pretty ridiculous!

Thanks again, guys!

Wow, looking back at the pics from the 2008 event to this year - there is definite evidence of the show evolving. Looks like a great time. I'm gonna keep my eye out next year. Looks like it would be a great opportunity to meet some of you guys.

Re: 7th Annual SSCC Figurecon Recap

Thanks for all the kind words gang. The story line credit goes to Point Man and the photo credit to both Point Man and Slack (AKA Mrs. Point Man).


Special thanks to the members who went all out to make each year a little better then the year before.

Thanks, Eduardo! It will never go away! Don't worry!

Thanks for all the other compliments, guys! Glad you enjoyed what we did for the show this year!

Mike (PointMan) took the photos and put together the post-show write-up and did a great job of it for sure!
