  1. Some nice stuff there Mark. I also picked up the Comic Con version of the B-wing from USAGundamstore but the pilot looks a little short for a B-wing pilot. Will have to do a bit more research. Today I stopped at Hobby Lobby to see what they had left on the clearance kits. Just two in the store, one I already grabbed and a car I wasn't interested in but I did help a couple of clerks sell and airbrush with compressor to a lady who wants to use it for her art. I could definitely tell the young ladies were out of their league so made a comment and then ended up basically taking over the sale. Next I hit Barnes & Noble and picked up the latest issue of Airfix Model World. Then I hit MRS Hobbies and found the new Revell PT 109 kit, the new Joker and a piece of power armor that I have odd plans for. So a good day out.
  2. Since it was kind of close, I drove to Nats. Meant I could bring more for the SIG/Club tables (Let's keep those as a fixture please) and could bring more stuff back home. First off I did OK at the raffles and giveaways. The mugs are from the Squadron raffle, the OLFA, cutting matt and P-40 from the IPMS raffle, the paint were giveaways from Hornby. First two books from Casemate at a very nice discount, next two from SAM and the rest from Rareplanes. Already found out I have a copy of the M113 book so that goes into the for sale pile. The Wellington was brought over from England for me by David at SAM. What do you know, forum posts work. The other Airfix kits were on the Hornby stand but they weren't selling. However, their kits were earmarked for Hobby Depot so went and chatted with Dick Christ and picked them up at the end of the show. Special Hobby kits from them and the two Eduard Migs were from them. The Scale 75 figures were on their table and though still a bit pricey, I saved shipping. Other 3 kits were from Stash sellers. Spent about what my budget had for this so think I did ok.

    Some stats pleae

    It is posted on IPMS/USA Facebook page. Contest Entrants: 424 Models Grand Total: 3,523 Models in competition: 2,723 There were 800 display models (700 of them 72nd Armor by The Duke) but not sure if that counts what was on the SIG/Club tables or not. Phil

    First BIG Thank You

    And thanks to Mark for taking the time out of his trip to post all of the pictures and fixing the ones we took sideways or even upside down.

    A Phoenix thank you

    Also my third Phoenix Nats and besides the good show, good people and great modeling I really enjoyed the SIG/Club area. Was nice to see this and feel it should be a fixture in every show going forward. I participated on two of the stands, the CoMMiES and the What If Modelers. Phil
  6. Hmm, thought I have been on the list for several months. Oh well.
  7. Discovery extras https://www.monstersinmotion.com/cart/spaceships-vehicles-2001-a-space-odyssey-c-13_403/2001-a-space-odyssey-discovery-1-144-scale-accessory-detail-set-for-moebius-model-kit-p-24404
  8. If anyone is interested in the AMARG tour you do have to sign up separately and get approved. First come first served. There is an extra $10 fee. i got my email response from them today and am now waiting to see if I will get a seat.
  9. I am hoping to get this kit at the show so put me down for one please.
  10. I also picked up the Discovery at my LHS at 25% off of retail. Debating on getting the interior kit with the pods. Already built the Orion which is the same scale.
  11. I also love the Batmobile and got their snap together version with the prepainted body as I just didn't want to try all that trim. Been thinking about getting the original Aurora version or probably repop as it is close to the scale of the Batcopter I will get to someday. Thinking a dio of Batman getting out the door and Robin jumping over his to "Get to the Chappa!" I have acquired a few more things but trying to hold out until Nats to see if I can get some deals. Also, doing the shipping for the Review Corp and trying to fit my own reviews in has been taking up too much time.
  12. I also took advantage of the Flash sale and picked up Dragon's El Alamein Sherman, another of Platz's T-33s and a set of figures (ordered 2 but the other must have been out of stock). Got all that for about half of what the Sherman retails for.
  13. It is a good day to take in some of the sites in Phoenix. There are a few museums in and around worth hitting and the Diamondbacks might be in town that night.

    A couple of 2018 National Ship contest items

    Hmm, I don't normally build boats/ships unless they are in my scale but have been thinking of a possible commercial entry. Guess I better find a kit.
