  1. Seeing Aliens around Las Vegas is a common sight, the Nat's should be no different. 🙂
  2. On behalf of my team, thanks for your kind words and compliments. We are thrilled that everyone had a great time. Yes indeed, this was our first Nat's and it's not easy starting from zero. Thanks to Mike Moore and Len Philhofer who spent a lot of time on Zoom calls with us early on to help steer us in the right direction. As far as a digital screen for raffles, we actually had that planned and prepared for it until we found out the cost would be well over a thousand dollars charged by the convention centers A/V contractor. Remember that Las Vegas is the Convention Capital of the World and the costs for such things as A/V and other tech is VERY HIGH. Considering our A/V costs were already over $10k we decided to fall back on marker and cardboard. Thanks for those who contributed to our raffle any way. Its much appreciated. Bob Lomassaro 21' Nats Chairman
  3. Thank you one and all for your kind words and compliments. On behalf of my team and I, we wish to thank everyone for attending and we are elated that everyone had a great time. Special thanks to our volunteers who helped make it run smooth and of course our vendors.
  4. Sorry David, diorama's have been assigned a space against the south wall of the model area. In case you're wondering why, is that many require power for lighting and such and it's easier (and less expensive) for power-drops. May be the same reason that Nooga put them there.
  5. Thanks for everyone's patience. The Seminar Schedule is now posted on our website. https://www.natslv2021.com/seminars See ya at the Nat's!
  6. Vendor Table Sales - All 300 tables are now SOLD OUT! Any vendors who still do not have tables please reach out to Joe who is compiling a stand-by list. vendors.nats2021@gmail.com
  7. 2021 National Trophy Sponsor Sales is officially SOLD-OUT! Thanks to all of those who reached out (and reached deep) to help support our show. For those who still would like to help, click here: https://www.natslv2021.com/event-sponsor Thank You
  8. Hi, I'm currently finalizing the seminar list. I should be able to post it on June 1st as scheduled. So far its looking really good! As YES..... we are in need of volunteers in every department. Your help would greatly appreciated https://www.natslv2021.com/volunteer
  9. Whenever we travel to California or Phoenix for a model show, we always stop off and stock-up at local shops located throughout LA and San Diego. But more than just a place to buy models and supplies, local hobby shops were also a place to meet-up with friends and 'talk shop'. That type of socializing was the hobbies life-blood before there were podcasts and Youtube. I miss that. I was a partner in a hobby shop on Staten Island back in the 70-80's and that was always the best part of the business. I met people that are still my friends today. You can't get that online.
  10. Rick, there is only one small hobby shop left in Las Vegas, HobbyOne Japan. Its a great little shop that caters mostly to Japanese animation figures and Gundum. They carry a nice line of paint and supplies and few air and armor model kits. There is a rumor of a new hobby shop opening soon, but until then we are limited to buying online. It's sad that a city as large as Las Vegas has succumbed to the trend of fading brick and cement hobby shops.
  11. We will NOT be inspecting Vax cards out of respect for our guests and attendees privacy. Anyone not comfortable with the new guidelines are encouraged to wear face coverings as I'm sure many will continue to do. The only cards we will be inspecting will be IPMS/USA Membership Cards. See ya at the Nats!
  12. Nevada just lifted the mask mandate for vaccinated people in all indoor and outdoor public spaces.
  13. We are expecting that all the big and popular shows will be posting dates and selling tickets on or around June 1st, which has been slated as the official 100% open of EVERYTHING without restrictions. 'Word' has it that things will be back to almost pre-covid restrictions by August 21'. Please keep checking. Thanks
  14. Thanks Mark! You have to keep a sense of humor in this crazy job.
