It is in the books.  Once again we were blessed by good weather and a good turn out.  228 models, down from 250 last year, but up from 205 the year before, so pretty on target.  Armor was down but sci-fi was up as was airliners.  Some photos below, focusing on 72nd scale, of course.

The X-37B has returned to earth after 2 years in orbit.  I find this space plane endlessly fascinating.  I wonder what it is doing on such long missions? (Post in memory of Mike Nofsinger)

For modelers with an interest in the Norwegian campaign of WWII (such as me),  this kit will be most welcome.

A new resin kit.  Funny enough I just sold on eBay an old injection molded kit of this aircraft.
