  1. Mike, I sent you an email with my room details at Staybridge. Thanks for all the hard work that is being put into this. I enjoyed getting to talk to you about the details of the show while at the Indianapolis contest and from what I heard it is going to be a National's that we will be talking about for years to come. Keep up the good work!!!! Tim G.
  2. My post was just a joke, hence the emojis!!! We wouldn’t want to do anything other than the norm it would throw the whole modeling world in a tailspin from which we would never recover!!! 😂 Just in case your wondering that’s also a joke!!!!
  3. Looks like the question was answered with the map, put it in the general location of where the United Kingdom is on the map and it will be centrally located. 😂 Looks like Omaha to me!!! 😀
  4. Marcin, I just checked out your link on the Large Scale Planes forum. All I can say is WOW!! That is taking scratchbuilding to a whole other level. Welcome to the forum and I hope you hang around. Definitely in a league of your own. 😀
  5. Pete, That is a good idea, the Chattanooga guys use GSB format for there whole contest every year and it works great. The feedback you get is really good. I’m going to bring this up to some of the guys at the shows I go to and see how it will go over to do this for youth categories.
  6. I agree with you Michael, in some of the cases I'm referring to has nothing to do with accuracy. 2 aircraft being judged one with no decals and canopy not painted and one with decals and canopy painted. Both had same quality of build but one of them was clearly not finished. 2 aircraft being judged, one of them was a conversion done by hand without aftermarket kit and one was straight out of box, same quality of build. Judges didn't take the time to read the description that was clearly laid out in the documentation displayed with both. 2 cars being judged both had same finis
  7. Ralph, That is great, I wish that emphasis was put on the junior's at every show. It seems like in the 10 + shows not including the nationals I attend in the area that I can drive to every year, this is not the case, most of the time I usually see anywhere from 30-45 entries consistently in the junior categories. Appreciate the attention y'all give in this area.
  8. Kevin, I hope you are right and this is the minority, I still think it's an issue as a whole that no one want's to address. The lack of comments on this thread to me says a whole lot, just not really a concern to the majority.
  9. I would like to bring up a topic of how we treat the youth categories at contests. The only reason I'm bringing this up is from this past weekend's experience that I witnessed at a show in Alabama (you can look on contest calendar if you need location). I was wondering around the show area while the judging was going on and happened to hear the judges discussing the junior category, there was probably about 30-35 entries to look at so the comment was made by the judge to another club member " I don't know much about what I'm looking at so do you just want me to pick 1, 2, 3". I really couldn't
  10. Does anyone on this forum happen to have one of these in there stash and are willing to sale. I'm wanting to build a Mistel 3B which consists of an Ju-88H-4 and a FW190A-8 with slipper tanks. I have all the components to build except the pieces to turn the Ju88G-6 into an H-4 which came in the Paragon set. I know this company has been out of business for a long while but was just hoping someone would have one laying around. :)
  11. There was some great junior stuff there, dont see any in this batch of pics, but the kids are getting better. Watch out old dudes!!!😀
  12. They had tickets to the zoo offered if you wanted to drive on your own and not take the bus. Maybe someone from the convention crew can let us know about this. Can't think of a security risk at the zoo but anyway just looking for some clarification. Thanks!!!!!
  13. Thanks Ron, I was wanting to get tickets for the Zoo. Kids are wanting to go there on Friday.
  14. I tried to sign up for one of the tours today and the when you add to the cart it says the registration for the tours is no longer available. Are the tours all booked up? Can you get tickets at the Nationals?
