On again gang !

Sadly the imagineering class has been dropped which is a whiffing shame but plenty of room in other classes to get a few WTF's from the unknowing.

Philistines.

Although I prefer to enter my whiffs into the "normal" classes anyway.

I'll be there all day Monday as usual.  Although the Model Car Club doesn't have a table this year because of apathy.

I shall be there, but I don't think I will be entering anything. A combination of moving to distant lands and owning scale reference cat means spending whole long weekends in town doesn't really work anymore alas...
I shall ponder things.
And possibly enter the wargames categories.
There are no good kits, bad kits or grail kits, just kitbash fodder.

I'm going to be having a busy weekend as it is also Comic Con.

Been.
Saw Buzzbomb and Comrade Harps and I know Sykotik was there as I saw his Dragonfly.
I'm going through my pics preparing them for publication and will post some, and a link to the rest, up here when they are done.

Pictures.

Not a whiff, but it is 1/72.

This was at the back of the table behind a big space shuttle standing up in a picture frame.  Shame as it is excellent.

Took me a moment to work out why this was in Sci Fi.

IPMS display theme this year was Teddy Bear's Picnic.

This is 1/144.

This should have won IMO.

I photographed most of the racing planes as inspiration for the Racing GB to come.

Trumpeter 1/72 LCAC.  Not a whiff but it has so much potential to be one.  I really need to get one of these.

The rest of my pictures are here.  Enjoy.

For those of you who like such things I have uploaded three pics of the civil airliners class in their original size.  I had originally intended to photograph each one individually for you but ran out of time.

I've got one of those, and a 1/144 one as well, no idea why though. The 1/72 box is GINORMOUS!  :o

That racing Hornet really looks the business!  :thumbsup:

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Mr Modest Zenrat appears not to have mentioned his significant placing in one of the classes.

Well done Fred on the 1st in Sci Fi Vehs. :thumbsup:
