  1. Your right Ralph i shouldn't have said Negative. There are some great suggestion.I guess i was a wee bit set back by the first two responses.I'll keep listening to the ideas. Rod
  2. From what I have read most being negitive.Sorry to wasted your time. Rod
  3. I have been a juniors judge for over 10 years. This year was the lowest turnout I can ever remember.The hobby if you haven't noticed is dying literally. Most of our members are in there 50's and 60's.Some of the problem this year was no make n take.A lot of kids will make something there and enter it.Now we always give lip service saying we got to get the youth involved in our hobby and that's as far as it goes.There's one group in the Detroit area that is the exception.i have a thought about perhaps giving a scholarship along with our Tom Kolk award at the convention.I know this takes money.The big hobby groups like Revell ,Tamiya,Squadron,Sprue Brothers,and ETC would have to be asked for donations this lack of young people effects them also.Now to our members getting about $5.00 a year for a couple of years gets you around $50,000.00 once you get to that amount you can give a $1000.00 a year scholarship and it will be self sustaining.I guess do we want our hobby to grow or to die with its modelers.

  4. I Would like to hear from a couple of the judges to see what they saw from the winners and also the ships that didn't place. For me this would help in my future builds.As I said before I thought the Bluenose was outstanding,and also Ian's ship plus there was anouther ship in the back that looked good that was on the same scale as Ian's Rod
  5. I can tell you there was some strange judging in the sailing class.The third place winner is a weekend build kit.And ther was a Bluenose that was great that didn't get anything.I didn't understand..I was enter in that class too I couldn't find a judge to go over my model to find out what I could have done better. Rod

  13. Clare Great show. the new venue worked great. Lighting was super, Checking in was breeze. I was very happy with my vending table and location. Getting the best senior modeler award was a shock.

  21. I was driving that car at the time of my prom. My memories of it are quite different than the reality, I'm sure. See me at the Nats and I'll tell you story about that car and my night.
  22. Yes, what's worse than any armor, aircraft or car modeler are when sci-fi modelers argue in the forums. Epic battles with internet chases from modeling site to modeling site. All over the correct color of a fictional vehicle seen on TV or in the movies. That was in black and white. Rod
