  1. Here are a few that I took at the show. I had a great time at the show, and say "Thanks again!!" to our hosts!! Doug
  2. That’s what I’m counting on Rusty!!!
  3. Hi everyone, IPMS Caloosa is happy to announce our very first show!! CaloosaCon 2020 is coming Saturday, 28 March 2020. We've taken over what had been the Wings, Wheels and Keels (Venice Florida) event held in Venice Florida at the Woodmere Park gym. We're holding the show in memory of Randy Whittaker, club spark plug and long time Venice President who recently passed away. Randy loved our hobby and being a teacher was very interested in bringing Junior modelers into our hobby. We've dedicated our first show to Randy's memory by naming the Best in how award in his honor. Both he and his wife Terri took a very active roll in putting the previous iterations of the show on and to commemorate their interest in junior modeling the Best Junior Award will be given I their names. We have updated the categories and rules package, as well as changed the awards to challenge coins. We hope everyone in Region 11, as well as modelers from all over come to visit, see some great models, check out the vendor area for great deals and have some fun in celebrating our hobby!! Contact information is on the attached flier, or you could PM me directly for more detailed info. Our registration form and model forms are available so they can be ready on the day of the show to save you time getting through the registration process quickly. Hope to see everyone at our show, it's going to be a great one!! Doug Hamilton Chief Judge
  4. The lines look awesome!! You know I've been wanting a kit of this subject for quite a long time!! Any idea yet when it will be ready for purchase? I'm looking forward to getting one!!
  5. I recently contacted Takom Models in an attempt to get a replacement part. I started by going to their Facebook page, and contacting them through Messenger. I made contact with someone at that location, and explained my need. The person on the other end replied with an e mail address similar to the main company e mail address. I then sent my request to that address. It's been about 5 days, and I've yet to get a reply. My question is; Has anyone tried to obtain a replacement part from Takom, and what kind of customer service can I expect? Thanks for providing whatever info you can!!! Doug
  6. Hi Butch, glad to see you here!! It was awesome to see you in Nooga and am looking forward to seeing at Jaxcon!! Doug
  7. I tell you, I had a blast at the Nats this year!! I don't want to turn this into how many superlatives I can pour into one post, but if I did, they'd all be an understatement!!! (Sorry, couldn't help myself!!) Mike Moor's idea of pushing display models was brilliant, and the model count was staggering as a result. It is a model show after all, and he high quality on display certainly put our reason for being there out for all to see. I loved the venue, and Chattanooga is a wonderful city!! I managed to get over to the Towing and Recovery Museum and wasn't disappointed. Mike, you and your team did a great job, and I'll add my thanks to those who have already done so!! Hope you guys do it again in the future!! I'll be back!! Doug
  8. The Nooga team did an amazing job in putting this years show on!! Mike Moore and crew went above and beyond to bring us one of the top Nationals I’ve attended!! Bravo Zulu!!
  9. Welcome back Pat!! Glad you decided to reenlist!!
  10. Hi Rick, I'll do automotive if no one has spoken for it yet. My contact info is Hamy3@aol.com for e mail, and 203 461 0534 for my cell. Give me a call in the next few days to work out the details of what's set up in terms of image transfer and such. Doug
  11. I’ll post some pictures as I go. So far it’s been a really fun build, and am making steady progress!! As for the size, it’s huge!! I had some of the sub assemblies at our club meeting last week, and had it placed next to a completed Panther tank. It’s gonna be big!!
  12. Thanks Brian!! I was able to figure out what I needed. I'll be using colors from the AK line of paints that match the color guide well. Not ready to apply any paint yet, but I have them!!!

    Color question

    I recently started building Takom’s Krupp 420mm Howitzer (Big Bertha) and one of the schemes is for a gray, green and brown version. Im hoping someone can steer me towards which gray the German military used during WW I. It looks a bit like the early WWII gray seen on German Armor, but I don’t know. Any help you all could offer would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you!!!
  14. Thanks Mike!! I’m sure a number of attendees will welcome such a list!! Doug
  15. With no banquet being planned, will there be a listing of restaurants close to the facility, or within short driving distance? Looking forward to coming up to see you folks!! Doug
  16. Another great event Gil!! Congrats to you and your team for putting together another fine show!! Doug
  17. 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!!!
  18. Thanks!! I checked out their website, they have some really interesting markings available!! I'll be picking up some shortly!!
  19. Looks good Dick!! I'm still working on mine. What issues did you find? What do I have to look forward to?
  20. That looks great!! It looks good sitting on the carbon fiber!! Where did you get the decals? I recently picked up the kit, but need new markings!!
  21. Hey Gil, As always, a great event!!! I had a blast!!
  22. 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!!!
  23. Nice job!! I've always loved this AC!!
  24. Hey Al, I heard you guys had another great show this year. Wish I could have made it. Maybe next year!! Give my best to the rest of the club!! Doug
