2008 Huntsville show wrap up

Now that a day has past, I’ve had time to reflect on the Huntsville show.  First, I enjoyed myself, as I always do.  Huntsville is always a good time.  This show was no exception.  That having been said, I found the show worrisome.  The attendance was down, way down.  I can only speculate that this was due to the ongoing financial crisis and the high cost of gas.  While new kits keep coming out and people seem to be buying, I wonder if shows will see lower attendance, and if so what effect this will have.  I will know more after Cinci.

Here is a TB-3.  You don’t see this one often.

This next one is a 48th scale Ki-84.  Very clean and a nice bare metal finish.

This next one is a figure vingette, WWI German leaders I think. (Thanks to commenter Fabian who notes that this is a scene from the Franco-Prussian war, not WWI.)

  1. Nice pictures, a little correction the guy on the horse is Prussian king and later German emperor Wilhelm I. The one next to him Bismarck. Thus It should be a scene from the German French (1870-71) or German-Austrian (1866) war.

  2. Fabian,
    Thanks for the correction. I’ve updated the post to reflect this. Obviously, I need to brush up on my Franco-Prussian war history. Come back often.
