The Southcott Collection

Karl Southcott is a local collector of models. Specifically, he commissions subjects for his collection. This year, he is bringing some of his collection to display at the Model Show. Among the artisans whom Karl has commissioned are Starfest Master Modeler Brad Dillon, Starfest Master Modeler and hands-on modeling coordinator Tom Grossman, and Starfest regular Steve Carricato.

Karl will be in the Model Show room on Saturday from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm to chat about his collection.
