WonderFest continues our commitment to the art of model making with an expanded demo lineup! Tracks include FIGURE modeling, HARDWARE modeling, and COMPUTER modeling.
We've picked some of the best builders to share specific tips and tricks. Talks last from 30 minutes to an hour (or even two), and focus on major modeling topics and skills demonstrations. Some allow the viewers to try the techniques shown. Video assist is used in most demos so that everyone can see.
A schedule of the daily demos will be published on this website and will be in the Pocket Program book.
We have a very special event in the works, plus we'll relax and socialize, with the traditional pay-as-you go food menu and cash bar. Buy tickets at the ADMISSIONS booth all weekend long, and at the door.
It's the perfect capper to a fun WonderFest weekend. Held in our Club WTF! (WonderFest True Fans) ballroom, set phasers to 'relax.' It's an evening full of surprises and tributes to our special guests. Don't miss it!
Headlining the class will be veteran instructors Jeff Camp and Gordon Oberman with assistance from Badger owner Ken Schlotfeldt and Black Heart’s George Stephenson.
This year’s class will feature the debut of a brand new 1:2 scale bust, Abner Marin’s Angel, which stands twelve inches tall. The class will also include metallic paint wax, Badger’s Minitaire paint, and Badger airbrushes and compressors.
Participation will be limited to 16 students.
The class offers two options:
Option A includes the Angel bust, a Badger airbrush (model to be determined) and compressor, Minitaire paint, a set of paint waxes and other finishing supplies, and 5 hours of airbrushing and painting instruction.
Option B includes everything in Option A listed above except the compressor.
