    Well done, Daniel and Zelkam! Great pictures, and so many of them!  Thank you for the extreme effort!

    Due to construction, the west building entrance is closed, so plan to enter the building from the east side.  I'm told that this year more parking is available on the extended gravel lot and the field behind the community centre.

    It's a neat kit but lots of work to clean up mold lines and pin marks, and the opening doors aren't really worth all the effort, since the cab view is quite open with lots of windows and there's not much to see inside.  I've been fitting the doors carefully and then gluing them shut.  For something different you can also cut open the cab corner windows for the 'five window' look.

     We made more tables available this year and they're over 75% sold, so things are shaping up!  
    Hope to see all our local builders there!

    Well, Artemis, it looks like you did all the research for me, now just need to pick out the one I like.  Thank you!

    Thanks for all the suggestions!  Looks like I may be on the right track.  I've seen Charles' fire/brush version with the open cab, very inspiring but way beyond my abilities and aspirations.  Gotta do some research before starting, got the kit on order...and I must try to finish up a couple projects for the upcoming show season (a double-decker sightseeing bus for one)

    Forgot a pic of the Opel Blitz!

    WW2 Military (or later fire duty) CCKW/G506 Project
    Anyone ever notice the similarity between the Revell '41 Chevy pickup cab and these WW2 military truck cabs?  Appears that G506 was the two axle and CCKW was the three axle variant.  I'm thinking of using the pickup cab on the Opel Blitz chassis with a scratchbuilt nose with simple fenders. It even looks like the full-size hood was somewhat cobbled together itself!  Front axle would have to be live too, hmmm...

    Well over half of the vendor tables have been sold, so things are shaping up well.  Hope to see all you car modelers come out for the day!

    Dan, it's not a show, just a sale, with maybe about forty vendors, though usually very well attended. It's a nod to the slot car side of the hobby, but models of all kinds can be found there.  Our model car show is in September.  I was very pleased to see some new vendors at our last show, as some very different models came out of hiding, like the Winnebago (though slightly overscale), DG Productions Topkick and Ertl tractors.  You never know when you'll find that special model you've been looking for!

    Wow, Peter, that was a quick response!  Let's hope that the later date makes for better driving (and parking) weather. I remember hearing about a model show called the 'Hope It Don't Snow' Show, and that's how I feel about this one!
