Michael Phillips Thanks Donald and welcome Spanjaard, Erik, Bryn, James, and Konrad!

Ok, slow progress on this as it is really not the greatest kit and I have been very busy of late. I have built quite a few modern and very nice kits in a row, so this is a step back in terms of kit quality. Biggest issue I have encountered so far is the clear pieces for the front door. They are simply just too small. I posted a pic to show what I mean. So after seeing some pics that have that glass removed I decided to just not install those clear pieces.

Anyway, I am going to be traveling to Indonesia Thursday and will be gone nearly two weeks, so there will be no updates for awhile. But once I get back, I will have to really get busy as I need to have this completed by December 9th to meet the deadline of getting this to my buddy in time for his fiance's birthday.

Donald Dickson II I have noticed the mini craft kits leave a bit to be desired.

Michael Phillips Thanks Markus, Mike, Sebastijan, James, Timothy, and Donald!

LOL Donald, that might get me, uh I dunno, arrested! Hahaha It is indeed an IPMS Show put on by my club, IPMS John Glenn and IPMS Western Reserve (both of the Cleveland area). It is a decent size local show with usually about 400-500 model entries. Should be fun!
01. November at 14:28:49
Maciej Bellos Splendid result Mike!
Good luck with the competition and more importantly have fun!
Decent size local show you say, uhm, last weekend's annual IPMS show here in Athens, Greece, was something like 900 entries. So I'd say it's more than decent. I would like to know the size of the IPMS US Nationals...
01. November at 20:47:03
Michael Phillips Thansk Maciej! I actually don't know how big a Nats is, I've never been to one. Actually, I really haven't been to any other show than the IMPS Local show. But next year we are hosting the Region IV show, so that will be the biggest one I will have been to. I have actually only been modelling for about 2 years now, so I need to get out to other shows a bit more.
01. November at 21:04:50
Gustavo Bruzual very nice job
01. November at 21:09:26
Donald Dickson II The US nationals are HUGE. Havent been to one myself, but they take over a large hotel for a number of days. Not sure of the numbers, but 1000 or more entries would not surprise me.

The Northern VA show is a big one as well. We had somewhere in the area of 400 entries as well. And maxed out the vendors.

Michael, not if you dont let anyone else see. Your word against theirs. And they wont be able to talk! ;) LOL
01. November at 23:20:40
Spanjaard i was recently in Scale Model Challenge near Eindhoven (Netherlands). 2000 entries in the contest (majority of it figures, around 1700 i believe).... it was incredible.
I have never seen anything like that before. And they are hopping to host World Model Expo in 2020... that will be something i will certainly not miss!
02. November at 01:15:59
Michael Phillips Thanks Maciej and Gustavo!

So this discussion got my curiosity piqued, so I did a search. It appears US Nationals has 2500+ entries on average every year. Would be impressive to see!
02. November at 02:43:05
Peter Hardy Either way Mick it'll take an extraordinary model to beat yours. And so say all of us!!
