  1. Hi Len, Regarding the banquet, is there a Plan B if buffets are still on the "not recommended" list of activities? Mike
  2. According to Google Maps it is showing Permanently Closed. https://www.google.com/maps/place/HobbyTown/@32.7496331,-97.4314749,445m/data=!3m2!1e3!5s0x864e73491592208f:0x7edf0a3a58ea5ca5!4m8!1m2!2m1!1shobby+town!3m4!1s0x0:0x310e2a8c8fde1086!8m2!3d32.7495906!4d-97.4311486?hl=en
  3. As I have been told several times, you are the one person that has to look at the model every time you walk by. My suggestion would be, whatever color looks right to your eye IS the right color. If someone tells me the color or a detail of some sci-fi subject i have built isn't correct, my response is "It is in my universe."
  4. I am currently using an approximate 50/50 mix of Mr Color 311 (Gray FS36622) and 316 (White FS17875 [gloss - because its all I have]) on both the Reliant and Enterprise. I don't know how "accurate" it is but to my eyes it looks better than pure white, especially since I won't be using the aztec decals.
  5. There are minutes for January 2020 in the IPMS/USA Topics group.
  6. My "go to" method for something like that is using a two part epoxy putty/clay such as Aves Apoxie Sculpt, Magic Sculpt or Kneadatite.
  7. As I suspected, I have several of the 2010 Decal sheets. Send me a PM if you are still interested and we will make it happen. Mike
  8. Hi David, Let me check my stash. I know I have several of the 2010 sheets and doubt I would have given away all the 1/48 subjects (I mainly build 1/72). If I have a set, they are yours. Mike
  9. Good question. One I have thought about but never researched before. A search brought me to this article: http://mentalfloss.com/article/542404/litigious-history-dc-and-marvel-rival-captain-marvel-characters
  10. I found this overlay on MapPorn. Its missing a few countries, but it gives a general idea.
  11. If you look at the PDF schedule linked from the main page, they are tucked in the Seminars - Room 102 line on Saturday. Business meeting is at 9am and the bid presentations are at 10am. I have contacted our webmaster to fix the PDF on the Schedule page to match the one on the main page. Safe travels and we'll see you next week!
  12. Based on information on the Hyatt Phoenix website, it looks like they don't. Mike
  13. Hi Mike, Members of foreign IPMS chapters do not need to be members of IPMS/USA to register for the convention. Just include your home country IPMS number on the registration form and we will assign you a temporary number for the purposes of entering the contest, etc. The General Admission fee is $10 per day or a multi-day pass can be purchased for $25. Children under 10 (with a paid adult), military personnel with ID and first responders in uniform are free. Hope this answers your questions, Mike Ronnau
  14. The tram from the airport to the 44th Street station is free. According to the Light Rail website, it is $2 for a single trip from the 44th Street station to the 3rd Street & Washington station. Then it is about a one block walk north to the hotel. Uber estimates anywhere from $15 to $50 depending on the size of vehicle you use (based on Uber Fare Estimate from Sky Harbor Airport to Hyatt Regency Downtown). Hope this helps and we will see you in August! Mike
