Memorial Awards

Every show, Wright Field Scale Modelers honors some of our past members who are no longer with us.

Steve Sheets Memorial "Best USMC Subject"

Steve served for the U.S. Marine Corp in Vietnam, and we had the pleasure of his company until he passed. Steve had heart problems, but we keep his metaphorical heart in our memories. To honor Steve, and to thank him for his service, WFSM will give this award to the best U.S. Marine Corp model in any category, any era.

Sanford "Rik" Newman Memorial "Best Movie or TV Subject"

Rik was unique. A U.S. Navy veteran, he later worked for a Hollywood studio promoting films. He always had an entertaining acectdote to share from his Hollywood days. He was a prolific modeler and collector. Rik knew many people throughout the country, and we will all miss him. WFSM will honor his memory every WrightCon by awarding the Sanford "Rik" Newman Memorial award to the best movie or TV subject.
