Needless to say, I'm one proud papa.
BTW, the contest was INCREDIBLE......over 550 entries, and not a glue bomb in sight. There was some REAL TALENT in attendance, and the competition was fierce. Hopefully, some of these guys will post some pics.

I really enjoy when youngsters are rewarded by their work & effort. For Us who are fathers there's nothing better in the world than a smile on your kids face.
Among all the things that the kids have these days, like videogames, Ipods, etc., it is great to see them get involved in model building. Your Kid has great skills, I mean like father like son... 8)
Again, congratulations to both and keep on building!!!!!!!!!!!

Congrats to Alex. It was well deserved. I got a real kick out of seeing the "deer in the headlights" look on his face when I called him up to get his trophy. Yoooooose guys need to get to our meetings. They are like mini NNL's but without trophies.
Ha! Alex said he was so surprised when you called his name! His knees were knockin' something fierce. He carried a photo of his trophy and his winning model to school Monday. He said that a few of his friends really got excited over the whole thing, so Alex suggested they get together to have a 'model building day'. How cool is that??!! Guess I'll be teaching a crash course in spray painting........heck, maybe I'll just let Alex teach it.
Alex and I will do everything possible to make the next MAMA meeting. It's been a while since I was able to attend.
