Specialist vendors will have booths and be selling various related kits, tools, books, supplies and accessories.  In addition, Grex Airbrush will be set up doing regular demonstrations.  

In previous years 300-400 models have been displayed and over 100 vendor booths set up. The best time for the public to check out the models is noon to 3 p.m. on Saturday.

The show hours are Friday from 2-7 p.m. and Saturday from 11 a.m.- 4p.m.
