  1. N~8~Ball added a post in a topic SOUTH HILLS MODEL & TOY SHOW PITTSBURGH PA.   

    I had a hard time getting there, But I had a great time too, The show seemed to go by fast for some reason. Since I'm a member of the club, I bought three "personal favorite" trophies to have handed out. I wasn't looking but, I always find something I want or like. This time I found a great deal on four Danbury mint tow trucks. I love these local shows !!

    You did Reply Tim, So did Ed Shaver on an identical post I had also put in the "general discussion" page. I had put it there by mistake as it was mis categorized and must have gotten deleted. I actually found a local hobby shop that handles the magazine. Thanks for the help guys.
  8. N~8~Ball added a post in a topic Model Cars Magazine sold in retail stores   

    I'm going to start calling around this coming week to the local hobby & book stores. Come April I'm letting the subscription go. If & when I find someone who carries the magazine. It will give me an excuse to get out of the house.

    I was just at Toledo on the 17Th, I had an "ok" time. There were a lot of over priced promos there. It wasn't really what I expected, But Anything to do with models is always good.. I bought a few things I was looking for. It seems weird they would have a model show in the back of a sporting event center! We had to walk through the people getting ready to play hockey with all they're gear and all they"re family/friends. It just seemed like a "thrown together " show to me as it was my first time attending. I am however planning on going to the NNL in October. I hope that show is better then the last one.

    James, You should have seen what the weather was like at 4:30 that morning lol.. I did a few donuts in the parking lot with my civic before the show lol.. They didn't plow it until later morning. I was only there until 10:30. I found a few deals as usual.. Im glad to hear you made it and had a great time.. Thanks for making the drive!! Im gearing up for Toledo NNL on Sunday. This will be my first time making that show. I hope its all and more from what I have heard about it. Take care. Nate
