Lakes Region Scale Modelers
Welcome to the Lakes Region Scale Modelers web site. On this site you will find information about the club, content from club members, information about upcoming events including the annual NIMCOM show, and more. We hope you find the site useful and enjoy the content.
Thank you to all those who came to NIMCON 5 to enter models, vend, help with setup and take down, and those who just came out to walk through and checkout the great models and items for sale in the vendor area. NIMCON 5 was another great show and we are planning a bigger and better event for next year as we host the IPMS Region 5 contest. Check out pictures from NIMCON Gallery page.
