ACME Southern Nationals Model Show Photos
Posted 12 November 2006 - 02:29 PM
This year was by far my most favorite Southern Nationals NNL yet.
Many big names and new faces showed up this year, and it was truly a pleasure catching up with old friends, and meeting new ones. There was so much talent in the show room, and it was surely visible by what was sitting on the tables. I'm still in awe of some of the fine works of art I looked at.
Gregg and Jarius, It was a pleasure meeting you guys.
I managed to shoot over 500 photos. I know that I didn't shoot all of the cars on the table, but I tried. The link to the album is below, and it should have some interesting eyecandy in it for everyone, no matter what subject matter you enjoy.
Please have fun browsing the photos, and PLEASE add comments to them if you built the model or have any remarks. It's always great to see feedback or additional info about the photos.
Here are some samples of the fantastic cars you will see inside the album.

What a great album Matt! They were all great but the class that really blew my mind away was the closed wheel racing. Impossible to pick just one favorite!
Closed wheel competition class had many entrys this year, and was one of my favorite classes to browse. The dragsters were off the chain this year as well, all top notch builds.
There was a surprisingly large number of Motorcycles too. There were more of them entered than I've ever seen at a model show. I think Revells new chopper series is a big hit.
