Fiberglass Freaks 15 Year Anniversary Mini-Con

Post by Mark Racop » Fri Mar 30, 2018 3:54 pm

It's hard to believe that another five years have passed, but the calendar indicates our fifteen year anniversary is coming up in September! To celebrate, we will be hosting a Mini-Convention in Logansport, Indiana, at the Logansport/Cass County Airport on Saturday, September 22nd, 2018. We had nearly 400 guests at our first mini-con, held in 2013, and we expect a larger attendance this year.

It's too early to indicate guests just yet, but I can let you know that we will have some great costumes and props on display, some of my rare memorabilia, as well as a Fiberglass Freaks' 1966 Batmobile replica, of course!

Please mark your calendars to save the date of Saturday, September 22nd, 2018. I hope to see you there!

Huge congrats on the milestone, Mark! I'd love to join you, sounds like a great event. I'll perhaps have to look into it nearer the time once my scheduling for September has firmed up.

Troy, Chris, and I are working on ideas for a display similar to the Hollywood Museum, with several props and costumes on mannequins. If you would like to contribute to the display, please PM one of the three of us. The convention is growing with lots of great ideas! I'll have more information when contracts are signed.

Mark, please ask him why the correct Batlogos were not used on the fuel tanks. I've asked this question on the board for years, but no one has a definitive answer. Thanks in advance.

When he restored and repainted the copter, he needed stickers fast. The 89 logo was readily available and the right size for what he needed at the time. I think Eugene would be OK switching it out, but he would have to have the other stickers readily available. Does anyone have vector artwork of the correct Batcopter logo for the tanks?
