  1. Try Model Car World MCW Finishes - Model Paint, Factory Colors, Hobby Shop, Model Paint The color you need is even on sale at the moment. Dave
  2. I say "busy" is a good guess for a "normal" year, this year.... I'm thinking extremely busy and crowded. I would recommend having all stuff organized and your prices marked "CLEARLY". Having an assistant to cover your "human needs", you don't want to leave your table unattended. Also an assistant that knows how much you are willing to "adjust your prices", people will ask.( I've been told I'm cheap, But that's my wife's opinion) If you think you will have time to go look at the models, have an assistant. Expect to meet many new friends. Be able to talk and do business at the same time. Have fun. I look forward to see if you have something I don't really need but I just "might need it someday for that project that I don't have time to ever do". I will see you there and good luck.

  3. Hi everyone, On the smaller parts I usually clean up the seams and the sink marks then touch up with Molotow chrome pen. Then a thin coat of Tamiya smoke to tone the "toy like" brightness down. On the larger ones I'll strip and I'll airbrush the Alclad chrome system. Practice on a few scrap parts, it's a fairly easy learning curve. Just let it dry thoroughly and handle as little as possible. This is the easiest and cheapest way that works for me. Try a few of the ways mentioned and you'll know what works best for you.
  4. Congrats on the new chapter. We at Mid-Michigan Model Makers wish you well. If you need anything,let us know. We'll see what we can do.
  5. Thank you. Will pass it on to our club board.
  6. Any dates planned on when the sponsorship for trophy's will be available?
  7. We'll have about 6 from the Mid-Michigan Model Makers driving in. Rushing to finish a couple to enter...
  8. Got my room booked. Went from $199 down to $139 with all the taxes. Very easy to deal with.....once I got the right person.
  9. I called the hotel in Loveland today and was told that the 2013 IPMS rates were already sold out. At least I'm on a wait list. Dave M. IPMS # 44492
