Visitor from IPMS Brazil

In December 2014, we entertained representative Francisco Antonio Scaramuzza (Chico) from IPMS Brazil. After exchanging international IPMS “gifts” and sharing some historical references between the two countries, we took him around the local hobby scene in Toronto, where Chico met with several IPMS Toronto members. Another visit is schedule in June 2015 and we look forward to maintaining regular contact with IPMS Brazil in the meantime.

Some international flavor in these photos from the IPMS Brazil 28th Annual National Convention, held on Nov. 29 and 30.  It’s always great to see what fellow modelers from around the world are doing and these are some of the best!
