That could be more brutal.  I've been subjected to elbows and BO at the Model Expo Swap and Sell.  Something I suspect contravenes the Geneva Convention.

Well, many years ago, at the swap section of the Paris Model Show, I found somebody's false teeth planted in my jacket shoulder...

 :o :o :o

I can't be bothered to get involved in the scrum that is some of these swap/cheap sales sections at shows. The agro is not worth it, I'd rather pay a bit more and be civilized.

I don't like crowds anyway so at Model Expo Swamp & Smell I time my arrival for about 1/2 hour after the doors open.  That way most of the kneeing, toe treading, jabbing and snatching has subsided.

When I become Supreme Ruler of The Earth, model theft will be a hanging offence!

No, no, too brutal and who'd clean the mess up?  Make them walk a gauntlet of modellers...   :wacko:

Or barefoot over a layer of broken sprues... those things are vicious.

Obviously a tactic, don't wash for a month before the show and you've got a clear advantage.
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.
