If I'm going to be home that weekend and go to the swap I might PM you Nick.......Then we can both get more kits we don't need.

Hope you have a good day at work. Over the years I've worked many Sundays and of course I've also worked on every holiday as well.

Hard to say, sometimes we're so busy we hardly have time to breath, others are painfully dead in multiple ways, others it's one of the prior broken up by the other on occasion. On the coworker front, it shouldn't be bad, nobody on scheduled that makes you want to intentionally mis-use an X-Acto knife.

For those who live in Illinois or southern Wisconsin, there was an AWESOME car show this weekend at the Rosemont Convention Center in the Chicagoland area. It was the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals which seems to get better every year and the first year was just great to begin with. While admission was a bit pricey, it was well worth it to see the show. I did take a lot of photos and hopefully when I upload them, they will help me get out of my "building slump" and inspire me to start (and finish) a few more models.

 

There was a model car contest there as well, as there have been for the last three years, but it never really "took off" and the participation was slim as it has been in the past.

Anxious to see the pictures Nick as several friends had cars on display there this year. I am thinking I might have to save some money and vacation time to attend next year.

In three weeks from tomorrow on Sunday Feb. 23rd is the swap meet at the Du Page Fairgrounds in Wheaton, Illinois. Weather permitting, I hope to be there buyin' kits and stuff I don't need, but it's always a good time seein' the guys I've known from over the years.

A really nice show this Sunday (March 9th) in Cedarville, Illinois. I was there for the first time last year and was really impressed by the model car contest and number of vendors in the swap area. I've heard that this show grows every year. I hope to see some of you there this Sunday as I'm plannin' on being there.

It was a good show today at Cedarville, with lots of vendors and a contest with 'bout 170 entries, and I left early. It was good seein' all the guys I have met over the years. Seeing how I'm in the process of "down sizing" my unbuilt kit "stash," I didn't buy any model kits today, but I did buy a nice decal sheet from Rick Lucas. The weather was great for driving today as well, and not anything like the mess we had to drive through last year. Thank God, I did.
