    Tamiyas M4A3 E8

    Thanks ERic I Just dont want to tackle the Dragon kits just to do a conversion Thanks Tim
  2. Well here we go! The oringinal concept for our convention was just that The National contest was secondary for sevaral years. My first convention/contest in 91 was driven by the comtest, but when I returned in 2008 the convention part seemed to come back in focus with the business meeting being held on Saturday’s. Im disappointed that the business meeting is given the “bums rush” along with the Bidding for the Nationals!? Can we move the Bidding day to Friday Morning? This would really help thoseChapter reps who are going to bid! Then the Business meeting on Saturday? Why not? We now give 3-4 days for the Convention and Contest. Spread things out, so we all can be involved! Thnks to Ron and the other guys for digging through their stats These need to put in with all the other stats to assist Chapters in the futer bids.

  3. Hey Pete OH YEAH!!! I would love to see these kits back out 35$ is a bit pricy maybe when yall get these out production kits going the cost can come down. It would be great if the entire line can be produced again because where I grew up we didny get them all. I built 3 Shermans 2 JS3's because thats what my local drug store had! Now bring out the Diorama 1/72 kits and Ill be the first in line! Tim Kirkland
