  1. Just out of curiosity I tried booking a room at the embassy suites during our convention and it is showing the hotel is sold out! There is a total of 283 rooms at the hotel and our block is 260. Mike
  2. I thought the BKB armor categories were just fine. Mike
  3. What was the final count on the number of models entered in the convention? Mike
  4. The facility has nothing to do with the UW! It is not located on campus. It is a short distance from downtown Madison. It should be a really good convention.
  5. My three choices would be: loveland, co columbus, ohio st Louis, missouri
  6. One last question, I am finishing up a couple of armor kits that have that black “screening” material in it that is used as a engine screen in the kits. would that be allowed? It really adds nothing to the overall finish/detailing of the kit. thank you for your assistance, Mike
  7. All I was asking was what region. I didn’t ask for a specific club. Mike
  8. How does the “Drover” compare with the “Brothers Sebastian” restaurant, in price and quality of the meal? Mike
  9. As a general guideline, kit parts that are necessary to complete and support the overall structure of the completed model are allowed. However, other kit parts that provide enhanced surface-detailing to a completed model will not be allowed for a BKB entry. What exactly does the above statement mean? It is copied from the BKB rules. Again thanks for all the responses as I just want to make sure of what the BKB rules allow and not allow. Mike
  10. So only plastic that came in the box can be used, got it. Thank you for your response. Mike
  11. I have an armor question for the BKB category. I am building a German halftrack and the only pe is mud flaps and the pieces where you put your license plates. Now the license plate holders are flat and you would never know that they are pe once the decals are on them. The mud flaps add no additional detail to the kit. So would this qualify for BKB or not? Thank you for your input. Mike
  12. Actually my anti-tank gun will be a standalone and not being towed.
  13. I am building a 1/35 anti gun and it is a BKB build. What category would I enter it in. Mike
  14. If no one bids for 2024, who gets the convention?
  15. Any word on who might be bidding for 2024 convention?
  16. Ok, I have read the rules and would like to clarify one small item. The kit I have selected has a small piece of screening for two small vents. If I read the rules correct, that would be allowed. There is no pe or other material other than plastic in the box. Thank you for your help. Mike
  17. I have already finished one of my builds for the OOB category before the new rules came out. The kit has pe in it but I did not use it. I built it under last years rules. So now what category does it go in? I agree with Barry on this change for this show is ill advised! Mike
  18. So, if the box says included BUT I do not use the parts I cannot enter it in the BKB category! I personally do not use pe when I do not have to. That is why I enter the BKB categories. Mike
