2017 NAME Day Events

This year’s NAME Day event is “BEDROOM – PART II: The Armoire.” Plans for the armoire are provided in various scales in the NAME Gazette. Some kit cutters will produce kits for 1/144” scale. This armoire has been designed to coordinate with the bunk beds from 2016. The bunk bed kits will also be available this year. In 2018, the final piece for this room will be available.

Please see below for various event dates.
