2017 New Mexico State Fair
Model Contest Results
 

ASM Model Contest at the New Mexico State Fair

This year we had a super turn-out with 77 total models entered in the contest by 51 entrants.  This was a new record for entries.  Thanks to all who participated in the contest and in the ASM display, helped with the model entries and pick-up, and did the judging, with a special thanks to Josh Pals.  Some pictures of the entries are included in this article.  Pictures of all the entries are available below. 

The Youth section had no entries this year.  The Senior Youth section had 7 entries by 6 entrants.   The Best of Show - Senior Youth was a Panther G tank built by Chris Vaughn.  We would like to see more Youth and Senior Youth entries in 2018.  A free kit was provided to each of these modelers on pick-up day, so hopefully that will encourage them to build more and come back next year. 

The Adult section had 20 models by 16 entrants.  The Best of Show - Adult was a Star Wars X-Wing in 1/72 scale built by Jim Medina.  The Professional (ASM members) section had 50 models by 18 entrants.  The Best of Show - Professional was the Mushroom Goblin by John Pattison.  There were some great models in contention in both of these sections. 

The ASM "Star Wars - 40th Anniversary" display had a total of 35 models that took up two complete display cases.  This was a new display-only record high.  Note that 6 of the Star Wars display models were also State Fair contest entries.  ASM members can gain points towards Modeler of the Year by entering models in the contest (50 points each) and/or the display (25 points each) – with a maximum of 3 models eligible for these extra points.  The display theme for 2018 is going to be "1918" - the last year of World War I.
