  1. FWIW, Flagship Models' business has increased roughly 25% since the pandemic began. I attribute it to more folks staying home.
  2. Welcome! Just a word of caution. The Corona virus has done real damage to the contest schedule. Check the current IPMS/USA calendar carefully before making plans to attend. 🙂
  3. Those OLD dinosaur kits don't look bad when painted up properly. Nice job!
  4. Final revisions have been made to the photo etch sheet and are currently at the etcher. Metal parts have been cast and are here, as well as wood masts, and yards. The instructions are nearing completion and I am now ready to begin making molds. It won't be long now.
  5. From one who knows. Hospice is a wonderful service for the chronically ill and their families. God's speed to Bill and his survivors.
  6. I don't know, and I'm sure there many modelers out there in the same state of confusion as I. Just an official statement from either the host chapter or the E-board would be nice.
  7. Personally, I would like to hear IPMS/USA's official current position on the subject.
  8. Mike was undoubtedly blessed with zoom vision. I say that because I always marveled at his 1/144th aircraft cockpits! An exemplary modeler and gentleman, he always carried a quiet dignity and humor wherever he went. He will be missed.
  9. "I would like to move this idea forward to IPMS Leadership. Any Ideas How ?" I got the GSB-123 survey going by first discussing it here. Ron Bell was looking in and contacted me. You have done that, so I would suggest next talking to the 2021 convention chairman and see how they feel about it. I say 2021 because you may not have time to get everything worked out with the 2020 Chairman and E-board to do it this year. You will NEED the support of the 2021 convention chairman if you have any hope of this going any further. If you can get support from the 2021 chairman, contact the 2nd V
  10. No one asked us to try anything regarding the slide show in '03. Everything we did was of our own accord and we kept the 2nd VP informed. I agree that host chapters should not be "lab rats". We chose to be "lab rats", because we knew where the problems occurred previously. I was so concerned about the show failing that we held a Saturday 2000 slide (2000 slides) show at a local church using the exact set up we would be using at the Nats. It went flawlessly and we got to see some cool model slides.
  11. I agree. Back in 2003 when I chaired the Nats in OKC, everyone I talked to said a slide show at the awards ceremony just couldn't work with programs available at the time. Guess what. We figured it out and the slide show came off without a hitch, WITH the program everyone had failed with before OKC Metro. Never be afraid to try something new and different.
  12. Nice reply with some good ideas and suggestions. I like this thread.
  13. I agree with Bill that many clubs now choose to host local shows that are less a financial and organizational risk than a regional show.
  14. I like to give everyone the benefit of the doubt because emails are misunderstood sometimes. Hopefully this post will die the death it should and go no further in this forum (hint, hint).
  15. What an unusual subject! Great looking base too. It looks really nice. Well done.
