Alamo Squadron's International Contest of Texas


ModelFiesta is the longest running annual modeling event in IPMS Region 6. The first ModelFiesta was held in Wonderland Mall, now called Crossroads Mall, in 1981 and has been held each year since that first contest. The contest has grown in size and quality since its early days and now averages over 120 vendor tables and over 500 models entered in the contest each year. ModelFiesta 36's entry count was 653!
