  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
  15. It is a two step process that may be confusing the issue. When you click on the online registration link on our website, you are taken to the page shown in the first example image. Since you have already registered, click on the T-shirt link and it will take you to a new page (example image 2). Then if you click on the line art of the T-shirt or on the "IPMS National Convention T-Shirts" text under the image, you will be taken to another page (example image 3) where you can select the quantity and size of T-shirts you want, and it had an ADD TO CART button. Banquet tickets follow the same process. If you aren't seeing the different pages on the computer you are using, or if the links aren't working, I would suggest trying the process in a different browser. If you are still having problems, then I'm sure we can use the paper system to get you taken care of. Hope this helped. Mike
  16. Hi Mark, Both links seem to work for me. You need to click on the image (or text) and it takes you to a separate page where you can choose quantity, and in the case of the t-shirts, the size also. Hope this helps and let us know if you are still having issues. Mike
  17. Hi Stuart, Thanks for pointing out that deficiency. I will make sure the website (and hopefully the shopping cart items) are updated to reflect the day and date for the tours. The Pima tour is scheduled for Thursday, August 2nd and the Orbital ATK tour is scheduled for Friday, August 3rd. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused and we will give plenty of warning if anything changes. Mike
  18. Trophy sponsorship forms will be active as soon as the shopping cart goes active, which should be by the end of the month. And there will be an online sponsorship form for those that prefer using the US mail. If you have any questions about trophy sponsorship, you can contact Jim Clark, the Contest Chair, directly at [email protected] Hope to see you in Phoenix! Mike
  19. We are planning a tour down to the Pima Air & Space Museum in Tucson on Thursday, August 2nd. Details should be published by the end of the month. We are also working on a tour to Orbital ATK. More details will be provided when we get them. Thanks for your patience, Mike
  20. The doors will open Wednesday afternoon. While some vendors may still be setting up, the vast majority should be in the hall and up and running. Also, it is a good opportunity to get your registration packet and enter your models before the big crush on Thursday and Friday. Mike
  21. There is a build thread on Kampfgruppe for this kit (http://www.kampfgruppe144.com/phpbb3/viewtopic.php?t=1632). One of the later posts states that the RLai He-111 is a rebox of of the CafeReo He-111 (https://www.scalemates.com/companies/company.php?id=2396) Sorry if wantonly posting links to other forums and websites is a faux pas.
  22. Hi All, This is just a quick note to remind you that the room reservations system for the 2018 IPMS/USA National Convention goes live tomorrow, September 30, 2017. To reserve your room, visit our website (www.ipmsusanationals2018.org) and go to the Accommodations Page. A link to the Downtown Hyatt Regency will take you directly to the reservation page the Hyatt has set up for our convention, so no need for discount codes or secret handshakes. The room rate is $135 per night for up to two people, and the rate is good from July 29th through August 7th, 2018. If you have any questions, please contact us via email at [email protected], or our Facebook page, or post a question here on the forums. Thanks for looking and have a great weekend. We'll see you in Phoenix!
  23. The Hyatt Regency in downtown Phoenix. The same hotel we used in 2004 and 2010.
  24. We will have a copy available on the website when we go live, but until then, here is a .PDF copy of the flyer we distributed in Omaha. Mike Nats flyer.pdf
