      Unfortunately, we were unable to upgrade the board software due to some technical difficulties. We will try again once we get the problems worked out.

    Okay, then, fine.  I'll help you out, Tom.  I'll stay home next year.

    Shouldn't the driver figure for the  #10 car have some extra "padding" on the front?

    Glad to hear the 'update!'  It will save me a lot of time, effort, and frustration.   I also "had" an 'inline' project nearly finished, but, if this is going to be on the table, I'll be putting mine back in the box and moving on . . .

    Again, I agree with Tom!  Well said and absolutely true on all points.  
     
    Thank you, Tom, for speaking my mind.

    I wholeheartedly agree with Tom, and, appropriating familiar words, 'I approve his message.'

    That is correct.  Steve shot these views at GSL when the Cobras and display were previewed for Mark S. Gustavson prior to the donation ceremony.  That's his hands on the right, mine at the top of the third image. 
    The labeling was based on the packaging as obtained from Bob's family, 3-1/2 years after his passing.  The Cobras had some "adventures" during the interim, and we - frankly - were not the Cobra experts we needed to be.  The display was prepared in short order as there wasn't much time between acquiring and donating the models.  Many of the parts bags were separated from the cars and intermixed.  We literally matched chassis with body and engine and chassis components by dry-assembling them.  Bob's craftsmanship was so superb that each component fit uniquely in only one place!  We were able to get all the components together with the correct cars, but there was some confusion between the two roadsters. 
    I'm glad some truly expert Cobra-files were able to clear up the misidentification.  Like I said, the Cobras had some "adventures" between Bob's bench and our hands.
    Please, by all means, go to Salt Lake City and view these cars in person!   They are captivating.  They show us all what we are capable of if we just apply ourselves.

    CONGRATULATIONS, Brad!!   Neat little Willys, and well deserving of the awards. 
    Please show your awards with the Under Glass pix!  Show everybody what DSC does for great models!
    And, you are right!  The new venue is a spectacular improvement over past venues, and Queso Good was Queso Muy Bueno!!!

    A couple of clarifications about the Bob Peeples Cobras. 
    Bob was a member of the Moonlight Modelers Club here in Phoenix.  He was also a friend of mine.  He died in 2011.
    Bob's family did not donate the Cobras to the International Model Car Builders' Museum. 
    They were about to sell them on eBay in late 2014 when the club heard about the plan.  We contacted Mark S. Gustavson at the museum and secured his pledge that the Cobras would have a permanent home.  The club - and some of us individually - pooled money (more than the family planned to ask for the Cobras at auction) in order to acquire the incomplete and unassembled models, along with Bob's notes, photos, and drawings.  We wanted to save them from eBay and disappearing forever. 
    Once we had them in hand, the display you now see at the museum was prepared with the individual components positioned as if a 3D exploded illustration.  Then, at GSL XXV in 2015, the Moonlight Modelers Club of Phoenix presented and donated the Cobras for permanent preservation and proud public display.
    The Cobras appear exactly as Bob last saw them.
