Sam: in all seriousness, I can't make this one. But, give me some lead time on any other shows and I'll see if I can make one or two in the next year.

Sam, normally I would be there. But I am in the Atlanta area (Smyrna). So I am going to their NNL show today. I will have my race truck in the show.

Head home tomorrow.

I took lots of photos at the Southern Nats NNL today. I will post highlites when I get home on Monday.

It was a great show with tons of models and people. Final count was 750 models on the tables! It has a great vendor area with lots of the top suppliers there.

They have folks select their top 5 favorite models, tally the numbers, and then give a trophy to each of the top ten. They also have trophies for the best junior, and best theme cars (vans and station wagons).

The race truck did well, with it selected as one of the top ten. It also won the Augie Hiscano Engineering Award! What an honor, as Augie was one one my heroes, who I met at my first two GSLs. He got me onto the machining end of the hobby.

It was a fun day and a show I would highly recommend.

Nice one Pete !!

I am having fits with getting the pics off my phone. Unfortunately I had to edit out the fuzzy ones.

I met some great guys, had a great time and Pam helped me all day. What a trooper and a BIG thanks to her for my anniversary present. (letting me go to a model show, lol)

There were just under 150 total entries. I took 8 entries. I tried to not load any one catagorie, but somebody forgot to send me the list of catagories. lol Anyway, in the straight line category my 1965 Chev PU gasser took third, in the Box stock my Opel took third. In the motorcycle category my Cup Noodle Honda took a first and my CB 750 second. I thought the third place trike was better than both of mine. What was the real shocker was the Closed course/open and closed wheel category. I was heavy in that one and ended up with four out of the seven entries. I was completly shocked when they announced my name for third, then second...and THEN, FIRST ! I was floored. Funny thing was, my Dodge Dart sportsman class dirt tracker was the only one that I thought had a chance of even placing next to the other three entries, and that was the one that did not even place. My Jordan F1 took third, the Ferrari GTO dirt tracker was second, and my Buddy Baker took first. WOW !

I will get more pics up as I sort them out, but here is the first.

Thanks Paul,

This T-Bird took best paint, as well as custom, and it was a mile deep and flawless.



The slammer category was full of just unbelievable builds, but this Google car took first.



They have a master category that all previous first place winners can enter, this plane took first.



This radical VW won first in straight line as well as a special in memorandum reward due to its innovation and execution,  well deserved.



I am not into the rat rod thing, but this was just an awesome rendition



The dio entries were just phenomenal





Here is a link to the rest of the pics...

Any award is recognition of skills and hard work.  I'm impressed by the quality of the builds considering it's not a huge show.  Lotsa fine modelers around there!  As to judging, the points system reflects the biases of judges though it shouldn't.  Sometimes entries benefit, as often they don't.  Congrats on what looks like a great trip.
