    Another great event Gil!! Congrats to you and your team for putting together another fine show!! Doug
  2. I booked my room before the Marriott block opened, as I'm a Marriott Rewards member. As the block hadn't opened yet, I couldn't reserve as part of the block. The room cost was only $5.00 a night difference, so the extra squag for my stay will be about $25.00. I couldn't wait the few days extra, and book in as part of the block. I had no problem getting my room, and was able to pick the type of room I wanted (King/Double)based on my desire rather than block availability. See everyone in Nooga!!!

    1968 STP Lotus turbine

    Nice job. I also have some of the Gravity line. I was told they were prethinned, only to find out more thinner is needed to be able to shoot them through an airbrush. Once I properly thinnef them, they work nicely. Just don't shoot the clear coat over enamel. It's way too hot!!!

    Things that make you fume

    Contests where "home cooking" is the norm, and qualified National judges are turned away. Phamtom categories that aren't posted on the event flyer, but are always won by the local sponsoring it. Best in Show is awarded to a model that doesn't win it's category. I witnessed all these things at a local show, that will remain nameless.

    Some unpleasant truths on modelling

    I've made it a habit of photgraphing my models when competed, then when it starts looking long in the tooth, stripping the weapons, interiors, and other useful parts, then waste-canning the rest. I've found about 10-15 years shelf life is about all they'll last. It sucks to toss out all that work, but it keeps my display case filled with good looking stuff, and making room for the newer, better built things. Doug
