PostSubject: Model Car Sunday 2013   Mon 06 May 2013, 10:00 pm

May 5th 2013 was Model Car Sunday at the Puyallup Elks Club. The number of venders was down this year but there were 298 entries in the contest. I didn't win any models at the raffle and didn't buy any from the venders. I thought that most of the venders were over priced and the ones that were Ok on their prices didn't have anything I didn't have or wanted. So that's life in the fast lane. The next one will be better. I did meet two fellow members there but will post that in the meet up section.

I entered 8 models and won one 3rd place ribbon. The 1950 Oldsmobile won it. The quality of the models was very high. When I looked around at the models I thought "you will be lucky to get win anything today."

Here are some of the builds form the some.















There were three members from this forum at the show brizio, it'sonlyakit and myself. between the three of us we took 13 awards:

brizio-9

it'sonlyakit-3

zbuckster-1

All in all a good show. Glad I went. Here is the link to the Photobucket album. 537 pictures so have a cold beverage of your choice handy.

Great show as usual! Well wort the drive.

I had to fix two models before register for the show, we saw the two speed bumps a the entrance, too late, and the box with the models flip on one side... :( But luckily it was all fixable there... :)

Other than that the show was like Buck said, fun. I didn't bought any kit either, right now I'm not building too much, you know the ups and downs of the hobby...

I was lucky that they called my raffle ticket number, but I gave my raffle ticket to a little kid (3/4year old). After a wile the kid and his father came where I was sitting for telling me "thank you", and the kit bowed his head too! I never seen so much respect and appreciation from a kid. Glad to gave him the ticket, and glad to see that there are still parents that teach and kid that learn, also was nice to see a little kit that build models!

That's Great Briz! Can't wait to see you start building again. Congrats to all members there on the awards won! Buck, the Olds is top shelf and don't let yourself be fooled! You are an amazing builder! They jus' don't appreciate fine art. ;) I love that Dance Stand thing. That made me laugh. 8)

Of all those cool models, the image sticking in my head is that simple Chevy truck squatting under a load of watermelons.
What a cool idea and effect !

No they were bigger than jelly beans. Some type of Plaster that was formed, cured in the oven and painted.
