  1. Welcome! Sound like you need a break with that work schedule Dave
  2. I love this. Can't wait to see it done Dave
  3. That is truly fantastic especially considering all the work and metallic finish. Nice Dave
  4. I would suggest contacting the RC for the area- Tim Ward - twardf86@aol.com He might know of someone. I will say that selling off an estate takes a LOT of work especially if the estate is large (model wise) Dave
  5. Very sad. Condolences to his family. Was a very ncie guy and a great modeler Dave
  6. If we didn't try new things, judging would still be 6 AM Saturday morning with the venue closed all morning instead of someone saying "Hey why don't we judge Friday nights?". One of the best ideas ever. If you are not changing, you are dying a slow death. Sure, some things don't work but many do. Some great ideas. Dave
  7. Bill: I think Chattanooga set one standard I liked with NO banquet. I am aware of the contractual obligations many have but it was great. I like the idea of scrolling the (if we have to do a banquet) of scrolling the winners show on the projection system while eating with the 1-2-3 places and awarding the specials, Best Of's physically afterward I would love more time after the awards to mill about in the room but I am not sure that is even pratical And Gil makes good points Dave
  8. I've only opened it. LOTS of parts. There are some build threads going on. Some interesting molding things like the entire front fuselage is one piece Dave
  9. OK- my thougths only RC's are in there job to not get members, that is the clubs function. Some clubs have active web pages, some don't and don't want to be bothered. And Facebook has little activity if you check the clubs that do have pages. Most members come from local shows and word of mouth. Plus we still have a lot of members who would rather build a model than spend time on line so not sure if technology is the answer for recruitment. As for electing them, it is hard enough to find volunteers to work for nothing so elections don't make sense when there are so few candidates As for regionals being two days, many are already. Those that aren't , want it that way. Some are formal with banquets and all, some aren't As for the number of contests, that is dictated by success. Some of the clubs no longer hold them due to not making money or more importantly, over saturation. Our region at one time had a contest every two weeks from mid Sept to start of Nov. It thinned out due to the number and people picking and choosing which to go to...Currently, there are over 100 contests listed this year alone. Seems like it is not declining much at all..might even be growing Dave
  10. I would call them and talk to them directly. I have had spotty experiences with them and only go to Squadron when they are sole supplier or have really good sale Dave
  11. Rusty: There was a vendor at Wonderfest that did nothing but guns- mostly SciFi like Bladerunner, Star Trek, etc. but there were some realistic guns. And I agree with VonL, take the political stuff to the bull pen and lets talk models! Dave
