Yes the NNL is still doing well, last year we had about 230 people & if memory serves 600 -700 models. As far as vendors who knows, John Carlisle runs the toy show part. The NNL rents our space from him. I thought that last year there was a good number of vendors, aftermarket & new & old kits. Not anything like the glory days of the '90s though, but in my mind worth the trip.

I have 3 shows on my schedule for October including the NNL and I am still deciding. I have only missed a few Toledo NNL events and it's always fun. And I always find some place to spend a few dollars :) I do like the new location as it is about 30 minutes closer to the Windsor/Detroit border :)

The "Cult Theme" for the 2012 NNL Nationals in a few weeks is "1946-48 Fords".

If you have any built 1/25th scale '46-48 Fords from Revell, IMC/Testors/Union, or aftermarket castings, please join our 2012 cult theme display against the far wall near the photography booths. No displays or spoofs, please, as we are trying to create a realistic scale parking lot of rods, woodies, restorations, customs, gassers, or anything else with a '46-'48 Ford theme. Trailers with boats, bikes, drag racers et al are also welcome as long as they are attached to a '46-'48 Ford tow vehicle.

With all the builds of the Revell '48 Ford Custom Coupe this year, and all the conversions of other '46-'48 Fords using parts from ths kit, there should be plenty of opportunities for you to display your themed builds along with the rest of us. Any questions, let me know.
As for the h
istory, this year's NNL Cult Theme is a return to our roots. The first ever NNL Cult theme was a the 1984 NNL Nationals (if memory serves me), and the theme was "Red 1948 Ford convertibles, built in 20 hours or less". The theme was inspired and created when a bunch of us were in Southern California and we went to Boyd Coddington's shop at his home in Stanton, Califorina. It was a standard two car wide garage in his back yard, but probably three cars deep. Inside was parked the prettiest 1948 Ford convertible, blood red with saddle guts. This was obviously years before Boyd became the star/hero most of us remember now. So anyway, we were all so inspired with the car that someone came up with the Cult Theme idea and we all decided to go for it. The first NNL Cult Theme was a success, and they continued on for a number of years, then were reinstated during the second half of the last decade.

So...if you have a '46-'48 Ford in your display case, please dig it out and join us at this year's Cult Theme display.

Best regards...TIM

IMC, Testors, Union, Revell, or your favorite resin casters....if they're 1946-48 Fords in 1/25th scale and they're serious models (no spoofs for this theme, please), they're welcome. You'll find the Cult Theme along the back of the left wall at the NNL National...come take a look even if you don';t have a model to enter....thanks TIM
