Here are two of the awards I got from Spruefest 2020. They had split the 1/72 scale armor category into Wheeled and Tracked. I got these awards:

This was a tremendous surprise given the quality of the models on the contest tables.

Thanks for looking in.

Nicholas, thank you. Yes, I've been building Braille Scale since I was a kid. I still have almost all my models from then too. I do like the Braille Scale since it allows me more room to display (except when it comes to the multi-engined aircraft!) and I love the consistency of a constant scale.

 

Thanks Bob! I'm thrilled to have gotten these given the incredible number of masterful models already on the table!

Well, it's been awhile since I opened this Trophy Case and dusted off these models here. I took care of that while I was making a small amount of room for my latest win in San Diego this past Saturday.

The first Model Contest in Southern California gave me an award, amazingly enough.

That is my 1/72 scale Horizon Models Mercury Redstone rocket. Wow, that felt so awesome, especially considering the literal flood of Masterful models entered this year!

Another Nationals is in the books and I myself broke another personal Milestone. 

 

At the Las Vegas Nationals, I took two awards for the first time ever at a Nationals for me. Here they are:

That is the 1/72 scale Mercury Redstone rocket... again. 

 

It's funny, I always thought I did better on the Atlas, but this one is the one that keeps beating it.

 

Thanks again guys!

Well done Mark! You’ve got some serious bragging rights now with those two! And don’t forget to mention your Patton in the group collection that won 1st place in that category. Bravo!

Thank you Carlos! Apologies for the late reply.

 

Well, I did make it to Orangecon this year and this year I made personal history.

I'd been entering and working Orangecon for 26 years now and this year I finally placed First in one of my categories.

I'm still blown away.

Thank you Chris! Yes, for the first time I seem to be doing better and better, and some awards are more than expected.

That does feel pretty good!
