    The deadline for entering the contest is 12:00. The announcing should start around 2:00 or 2:30 and the show is over at 3:00!
    The tables are almost sold out so we should have lots of stuff to look at and buy!! I will be posting some photos after the show also.
    Hope to see you there!

    I may have a 70 Roadrunner grille, I think it was cracked but fixable. Let me check and I will let you know!

    We are going to raffle off a vintage kit at the show! We have done this the past 3 shows. This years kit is a sealed Johan 1964 Dodge drag car, "Recharged" on the box!

    Thanks Jeff! We are hoping the hall works out well also. We have the 2018 show booked for Castle Shannon fire hall. I will be putting info
    up as soon as this years show is over.

    Looking for parts
    Looking for a 1970 AMT Monte Carlo rear bumper from promo or kit. Also looking for glass from a 1963 Chevy Nova, the altered wheel base would be fine. Thanks!

  8. fordf-100 added a post in a topic My version of Chevys should be 1963 ElCamino!   

    Love the old Aurora stuff! Always looking for cars! I did some work on my El Camino project, I rescribed the door lines and fitted a back window.
    I used the Molotow chrome pen to re-do the front end chrome. I am going to paint the grille stainless with a black wash, I used the pen on the bumper and the upper 
    grille surround and around the headlights. Not sure if I should drill out the lights and replace with clear lenses, would rather try and "clear" over them. Any ideas?
    Also its amazing how a close up photo with a phone camera makes by body work look like BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH!

    Here is a copy of the show flyer for 2017 showing our classes and our special theme class "IMPORTS". This could be anything from a tuner to factory stockto a drag car
    as long as its an import. This would include British, European, Japanese Etc.....

    Great photos! Thanks for the tips + I love the track roadster! What nose/grille did you use? It almost looks like the old Monogram indy car, or is it scratch built?

    I will try your tips tonight! Thanks again for the help!

    Taking photos of models
    Hi everyone, I am looking for some help in taking photos of models. I am not a photographer at all! I also know nothing about cameras! These will be taken with a new DSLR camera
    that is my daughters. She also is new to taking photos, especially of models. We will have them on a white table top in an area that is very well lit. The main problem that we are having is
    when trying to get a good close shot of the model, part of it is in very sharp focus and part of it is very blurry. We typically take a 3/4? view from front to back and either the front or back is in focus. Is this a setting that would be on the camera? I cannot remeber what the camera is right now and I dont have it handy. We are using a tri-pod to keep it steady. Any tips, tricks or info would be greatly appreciated! Thanks everyone in advance!!
