Welcome to Archon, we are in our 40th year.

Archon Models and Miniatures Contest

Sponsored and Presented By: Midwest Society of Sci-Fi and Space Model and Toy Collections

We are excited to bring back a models and miniatures contest to Archon. Building scale representations of our favorite fantasy and real subjects connects us to our dreams. The hobby is enjoyed by young and old around the world. This is a great place to show off your best work! Prizes will be awarded for the top entries and everyone gets recognition of participation. Judging will be a combination of popular vote and expert critique. We will also feature panels for people wanting to learn more about the hobby, whether you are just building your first Starship Enterprise or you are a master at prop reproduction.

How much does it cost? IT DOESN’T COST ANYTHING! In keeping with the spirit of other contests and panels at Archon, we believe this contest should be open and free to all participants.

Check-in begins on Friday after opening ceremonies and ends at 12 PM on Saturday.

Our adult categories include:

Real Space
Science Fiction Vehicle (if you can justify it, you can show it)
Figures and Miniatures
1:1 Props

For the 12-and-under enthusiasts:

Original Lego

We will have an awards ceremony on Sunday where prizes and certificates will be on hand for presentation to the winners.

The miniature contest will be held in the Art Show room.
