  1. I personally have no issue with someone "buying out a vendor", whether it's 5 minutes or 6 hours into the show. If it happens before the show even opens, I see no issue whatsoever...it's simply like that table didn't sell. If you start dictating to vendors when and to whom they can sell, you run the risk of alienating not only those vendors, but even buyers who views your actions as dictatorial. "You vil only sell on Fridays and only ven the temperature is above 70 degrees!!!" Oh, and regardless of the price offered, you CANNOT sell your entire lot to anyone! (Talk about a deal
  2. David, These are only my own personal views and experiences...your results may vary. In order, my answers to your questions above are Maybe, No, Yes, Sometimes, and in IPMS contests, Absolutely not. Weathering of models has been going on as long as model building itself has existed. However, you could be right in thinking that some of the extreme weathering seen today is indeed not only way-overdone and counterproductive. On the other hand, weathering is not a fad. Some techniques might be, but not weathering itself. In fact, most dedicated armor modelers believe that to NOT wea
  3. I agree, Rusty. Charging the same as a day pass would probably be appropriate, but charging the full registration fee would likely kill this idea before it gets started.
  4. The main thing that sticks out to me about these figures (apart from the ~60% of registrants entering the contest) is the overall size. Having never attended a National Convention, but hearing all the discussions about manpower, judging constraints, and monetary expenditures, I had always imagined a much larger event. In actually, the number of entrants at these two events is about 3 or 4 times larger than some one day local shows. Granted, those can have both members and non-members entering models, but for me, it's quite interesting nonetheless.
  5. Very, very interesting, Ron. Thanks for doing the leg-work on this and posting the information.
  6. I'm really enjoying watching this come together, Pedro. I love how the build is progressing...well done!!!
  7. Wow, Robin, That is a great snag. Personally, I wouldn't try to do too much with the kit. Of the two options, I'd probably go with the combat option and look to pick up a cheap set of appropriate decals (the kit ones are probably suspect). Still, I'd build it strictly for enjoyment and absolutely nothing more. Thanks for the time warp!
  8. Clare, You answered that reply MUCH more nicely than I would have. Talk about self-righteousness!
  9. I am extremely saddened to hear this news and send my heartfelt condolences to her friends and family.
  10. Thank you, guys...I truly appreciate the kind comments.
  11. Thanks, Dennis. I think it's just an old, stock Tamiya figure...possibly from the Greif kit?
  12. Thanks, Gil. It's the Thachweave Products (out of Canada) bumper designed for the LWS.
