SpaceCon V - 1982

SpaceCon V was held in Springfield, Massachusetts, USA, in July/August 1982. It featured the only major display of original models seen in the US (dubbed "Space City USA"). The models were brought over by collector Phil Rae. Thanks to Gordon Moriguchi for the photos (we are not sure who originally took them).
