While I won't be at the swap meet on Sunday Derrick, I've heard that it's gonna be pretty full with vendors, and they will be having another swap meet at the same place in early December as always.

Any info on it??
Though this is for vendors, it provides the pertinent info:
SHOW LOCATION: WAUKESHA COUNTY EXPOSITION CENTER(Arena Building)
N1 W24848 Northview Road
Exit I-94 at Waukesha Cty “J” Exit #294
1 mile South to Northview and West 1 block on Northview
It's a few miles southeast of the Excellence Center, but easy to get to if you take I-94 West.

Is the show at the Exposition center the swapmeet for the NNL, or is this something different?
I will be there Saturday, but I have a very short window on Sunday, because we have to drive back to St Louis..

@James- Pretty sure they're unrelated. The swap meet is run by Milwaukee Miniature Motors and is one of 2-3(more?) shows a year. The NNL and swap meet just happen to fall on the same weekend.
I won't make the swap meet on Sunday, but I'm planning on being at the NNL show tomorrow. I have 4 models that I'm bringing to display. Would have been 5, but the 5th is eluding me at the moment. It's in a place that I'll remember.

I have not looked at the models I brought to see if they survived.. We started last Monday from St Louis, and stopped at attractions, hobby shops and craft store on the way.. We traveled a lot of blue highways, and bumpy roads..

James, check the parking lot on Saturday as there may be a few vendors out there during the show.

I am polishing my cars as we speak........my 1/12 Mustang has never looked so good! Good thing too! It being the 50 years of the Mustang.
Wont be able to make the sunday show though......I DID buy a certain 1/12 Porsche 911 Turbo recently though .
See you guys tomorrow!!

The Milwaukee NNL 22 was a great success today with 830 cars on the tables, 120 were Mustangs as the theme was 50 Years of the Mustang. LOTS of "eye candy" and inspiration. Can't wait to do it again next year.

Great show! First time attending and glad I went...brought some models along too. Even got a model from the raffle! Definitely going next year!

One of the guys will be posting tons of photos on the Spotlight Hobbies Message board. I myself don't take photos at model car show or even 1:1 "cruise nights." Only at 1:1 car shows.

Attended the show yesterday and really glad I went. It was the first show I've attended and came away with a bunch of pix and ideas. Also attended the swap meet in Waukesha this morning too. Picked up a '32 three window and a 57' Soff Seal Pro Sportsman. Looking forward to going to more of these swap meets as well.

I'm you went also Rich, as to me it's a show "not to be missed." I didn't make the swap meet today, but there should be another one in Waukesha 'bout December 7th if I'm not mistaken.
