The 2013 Jerseyfest Academy features an all day seminar called “Advanced Sci-Fi Vehicle Model Making” from 9:00AM to 5:00PM on Friday, September 13th.   The cost is only $60.  The event is being held the day before the weekend long vendor show.  Experts will demonstrate advanced techniques and methods for building, painting and customizing resin and plastic Sci-Fi vehicle and mecha model kits, such as spaceships from Star Wars, Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, etc., and Maschinen Krieger/Ma.K (aka SF3D) kits.

Numerous topics will be presented in a series of professional demonstrations or slideshows in a relaxed setting that allows you to sit back and enjoy the experience and knowledge gained.  Topics to be covered include:
