The contest and convention is in the books for this year. PeteS and I both attended and he will be posting a Meet-Up when he gets home this evening. I'll also let him tell you how he did. :)

I was rather happy with this.



All in all, it was a good weekend.

Yeah, that car is a goody and deserves praise for the clever weathering. Glad you had a good time! Win or lose, coming home from a contest or sale and meeting other plastic fanatics really gives positive energy.

Great job, John. You were running with the big dogs there.

Well done John the Ford certainly deserved the award.

It's a nice feeling being appreciated by ones peers isn't it?

OK. I finally have time to report on the GSL.

If you saw my thread in the completed race car category, you saw that I entered the Dirtrix Off-road Race car in the Replica category. Well, like John J, I ended up with a fourth place in this class :D . The competition was very tough, as there were so many really beautiful cars. So I am please with this showing.

Congratulations to John for his well deserved placing with his entry. I overheard many compliments on the weathering on this model.

The show had some incredible entries. The Best of Show was astounding. I am sure we will see a full feature article on it in both Scale Auto and Model Cars. It was very deserving of the many awards it received.

Pete

Forgot to include two photos. The first is John receiving his award :cheers:



The second photo is of both of us with our awards.



The awards were interesting. You see that they were in baggies. The award is a "KIT", where we have to assemble them. Interesting twist on things, and for those of us who had to fly, they pack easier!

Speaking of flying, my race car did not survive the flight home, even in my carry-on. Ended with both front wheels broken off the car, so I need to do some repairs 😢 .

Hey Pete, thanks for posting the photos. You're right, it's great to meet up face to face. Brings the bond of friendship closer. I really enjoyed the weekend, in spite of the bronchitis that I was fighting with. Looking forward to doing this again and congratulations on your win. Too bad about the damage to your model, hope the repairs work out for you because you did a beautiful job on it. John
