    This next one was a purchase at my SoCal AMPS meeting that I picked up to start at our build night meeting that was starting that night. I'm going to be making this a Syrian tank:




    Thanks for looking in.

    I have a Revell Panzer IV to make Syrian some day.  I did get decals for it.

  2. Hi Dave,

    Checking their website it looks like total space available is  42,111 which is a bit small for a Nats, especially a central one that could have a big draw but if you could get it for a good price and good room rate who knows.  

    If interested, reach out to John (2nd VP).  He can give you some advice on what is needed to pull one off.

    As for help, you do need a good local ground team.  However, with the NCSC's help that could be a small local team.  Volunteers are usually going to show up and if you offer them free T-shirts or other bennies you can do one.

    I keep trying to get SLC to do another but still a few guys from the 1980 show around who remember loosing a lot of money.  This was before the Board stepped up to cover certain costs and I hear there were some other things that contributed to the cost.  There are 3 IPMS clubs in the area, a Gundam club, Auto club and an AMPS club so I think the manpower is here but the cost of facilities has been the biggie.

  3. Looking at the members in the clubs I am in (that is 4 across 2 States) about half of the members who attend or are interested in attending have children in school and/or are teachers themselves.

    Summer also has the best times for travel, especially if you plan to drive.  The weather out west this year has been trying and it didn’t look much better in other parts of the nation.

    We also have to look at holidays which we have confirmed are not great times to hold a Nats.

    Having display tables in the hallways, especially along the away to the contest room would be a bonus! Nobody could pass them by without at least seeing they are there. Good luck with that!

    Only problem is security if stuff is left out overnight.  We would need a space where they could be Locke up at night and then brought back to the hall ways each morning.

  5. Really nice stuff as always Paul and I am glad you are back in the Corps.

    Just one nitpick for you regarding the Airfix Firefly.  It shouldn't have the bow machine gun.  Airfix got it wrong in the instructions but actually include the part that was welded over the gun mount on the real tank, they just didn't call it out.  But then again, you are a plane guy and I love seeing all the armor you did this year.  Now we need to get you building some Sci-Fi stuff.

    You know, we haven't done the pacific northwest yet.  Spokane/ Coeur d'Alene is are large enough to host such an event. Portland/Vancouver would be great to get around.  Seattle/Tacoma has plenty of options.  For many it would be epic drive, but certainly a great part of the county to drive through. 

    We did Seatac back in 1992 and I had a great time.
