  1. "That's a possibility that I hadn't considered Nick, but 400 rooms sold out means an attendance of at least 400. What was the attendance in Chattanooga last year? I can't seem to find it. That would give us a decent yardstick." PeteJ: I was the contest coordinator for Chattanooga so here's some numbers for you: Convention registrations - 961 Contest entries - 3100 Display only models - 1680 Total models - approx 5000 (remember that we had quite a few collection and group entries, all of wh
  2. In addition to Dave's good advice above, I strongly recommend that anyone who has or is considering buying a liquid resin 3D Printer like the Elegoo download the following fact sheet on the safety and handling of this resin. https://www.radtech.org/health-safety/proper-handling-of-uv-resins It is free and was written to be useful. In the spirit of disclosure, I am heavily involved in the 3D printing industry and I am the principle author of the fact sheet. Enjoy working with your 3D printer! Have fun modeling! Mike
  3. Speaking of T-38s, some markings for one of NASA's Houston based T-38s in 1/72 would be greatly appreciated! Other than an unusual set of markings for a NASA T-38 on a very old Microscale sheet, I don't think these have been done in 1/72. This decal would get the interest of both aircraft and space related modelers and it is Texas focused! Have fun modeling! Mike
  4. Great work and idea Kev! Definitely a change of pace from real space modeling. Have fun modeling Mike
  5. Interesting discussion! For those who will be in Phoenix next week and have some time to kill on Thursday afternoon, I'll be giving a seminar on 3D Printing. The focus is an overview of the different types of 3D Printing (technology that is used) and how it relates to scale modeling. Basically, I'll be covering the basics! I am in the 3D printing industry and also teach a course at SUNY on 3D printing technology. Some of the confusion comes from the different ways 3D Printing can be used (make individual parts or the complete model). Being deeply embedded in the industry, I am not too co
  6. Interestingly, I received my January/February Issue in today's mail and I also had the insert that this was my last issue. My membership expires on 12/15/15 so unless we will be stretching out the Journal to 1 issue a year ;-) , I should not have received this insert either. I'll drop MJ a note also but this looks like a trend! Have fun modeling Mike IPMS# 14354
  7. This has been a great thread, and has reminded me of a lot of movies that I have enjoyed over the years. It also had me thinking as to what movies would be my all time favorites. I guess I gravitate to the more realistic classics with my top choices being: 2001 A Space Odyssey (#1 in my book!) Blade Runner Silent Running While I have enjoyed the entire Star Wars series and Alien(s), I do have a soft spot for the original Star Wars. This is mainly due to the fact that I worked with Ben Burtt's dad at the time and he would bring in photos from his son showing us this SF movie he was
