Despite the technical difficulties that PopCult has been experiencing, we can see a light at the end of the tunnel of our WonderFest USA photo essays. Your Popculteer is going to attempt to show you the best of the rest of the model contest room in this huge photo essay that will test the limits of what PopCult’s blogging template can handle.

As you can see in the photos below and at the right, WonderFest was a hotbed of creativity and craft. These models were eye-popping, and in many cases, photos do not do them justice. This is an amazing event and anybody even remotely interested in model-building would be well-advised to make the trip to Louisville at least once to see this astounding collection of pure works of art.

We have a couple of smaller photo essays from WonderFest that we will attempt to squeeze in over the weekend so that we can clear the decks for our coverage of the Marx Toy Convention, which begins next Friday.

For now, just bask in these cool models.
