All the way to the back of the store and towards the right side, Wayne. They call it their hobby or meeting room. Don't forget your HL 40% off coupon. And we have Rob's Hobby World just a few miles down the road that offers us a 10% discount all the time.

Jim mentioned he is coming down to Tampa for the MAGS show on Oct. 15/16 at the SE Streetrod Nats. If anyone is planning on being here, there's some things you aughta know.

This show is different from most. It is in the vendors area of the car show. Every year the car show shrinks up the clubs space so table space is limited. The tables are laid out parking lot fashion. There's not much room to get in there and photograph with a lil tripod. Although they give no limit to the amount of entries, I'd bring no more than six of your best work. Also, you have to walk through the car show to get there, making transport of a large quantity of models problematic. Because this is in an area open to the public, your models will be surrounded by spoiled, over-indulged children and their inattentive parents all day, both days. However the MAGS guys are out in force with their friends and spouses too, keeping the grubby little hands away. I've not heard of an "incident" at this show, but be advised, the possibility exists. I'd try to keep your builds away from the edge of the table if possible. You gotta leave your models overnight. That's when they do the judging. The facility has a security guard overnight. The MAGS guys are excellent judges and great modelers. Be advised they do award their members awards. However I didn't see a MAGs member win an award for a model that wasn't deserving. It was a tough show. Lots of great builders.

I plan on being there. I hope to see you.

Florida Auto & Scale Trucks (FAST) is a hands on, face to face model club rather than an online club like Model Car Builders of Florida (MCBF). It would expected that both groups can support each other and help the hobby.
