    Hey guys:

    We are honored to have Lorne Peterson attending as one of our special guests at the Jerseyfest Model Kit & Statue Fair in September in New Jersey. Not only will attendees be able to meet Lorne, but he'll also be doing presentations on his past model making at ILM Studios, which of course includes Star Wars, plus his current and future projects, and his terrific book "Sculpting a Galaxy - Inside the Star Wars Model Shop". I know most of you know very well who Lorne is and what his legendary accomplishments are, but I still would like to share some background information on him:

    Amazon.com: Sculpting a Galaxy: Inside the Star Wars Model Shop (9781933784038): Lorne Peterson, George Lucas, Rick McCallum, Phil Tippett: Books

    We are a diverse show aiming to satisfy figure and vehicle collectors, hobbyists and movie lovers. We will be posting big announcements soon about numerous show activities that will be occurring all weekend long. We are going "top shelf" for this show so that all who attend will have a great time and have the opportunity to see and buy great models, statues (Sideshow, Bowen, Gentle Giant, Weta, Hot Toys, HCG, etc.) and collectibles, as well as learn from great artists.

    Much more info to come.

    Hey guys:

    We updated the Moebius "Make & Take" class so that if you already have the Moebius Viper Mk 2 Kit, you have the option of bringing and using your kit for this class, in which case the total cost of this "all day" class would be reduced to $20 per person. Otherwise, the cost of the class with kit and everything is $40. This is a great value considering the kit alone usually costs $30.00. We also added a photo etching tutorial to the agenda - all included with the class. See all the info here: http://jerseyfestfair.com/?page_id=315

    Thanks,
    Dave

    Hey guys:

    Just added another all day class to Jerseyfest Academy called “Advanced Sci-Fi Vehicle Model Making”. Experts will demonstrate advanced techniques and methods to build, paint and customize resin and plastic Sci-Fi vehicle model kits, such as spaceships from Star Wars, Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, Aliens, etc. Registrations begin now and seats are limited: News (Blog) » JerseyFestFair

    Note that the Moebius Models Make & Take class and Advanced Sci-Fi Vehicle Model Making class are two different classes.

    Hey guys:

    The Jerseyfest Model & Art Contest will feature a very special award called the "Lorne Peterson Best Star Wars Kit" award. Lorne will be at our show all weekend long and will be picking out the winning kit, which can be any completed Star Wars vehicle model kit (resin, plastic, scratch built, diorama, etc.) entered in the contest. The award is a beautiful, big, vertical standing plaque with a shimmering blue tint, which will be autographed by Lorne. He will announce the winner and hand the person the plaque during the Jerseyfest Contest Awards Ceremony. We will take a photo of Lorne handing the award to the winner so that the special moment can be captured for a lifetime for that person. Lorne Peterson is a living legend who was the Chief Model Maker for the Star Wars movies as well as many other blockbuster movies such as Jurassic Park, Indiana Jones, etc. The contest and Awards Ceremony will be held during the vendor show on Saturday, September 14th, and will feature many other awards and prizes, including numerous awards for vehicles and mecha models. More info about the contest will be posted in the coming weeks - see all the latest here: Model & Art Contests & Exhibits » JerseyFestFair
