    Thanks for the response Danno, good stuff in there. I guess Moskov is getting under my skin because I'm the type of guy who likes to please every last person.

    Thanks for the support everyone. I had fun doing it. MRM hasn't bothered to respond so I figured he's one of those types that likes trolling around in hopes of getting a rise out of people. It's one of the reasons I don't really go to forums anymore. But I'm over it. Hopefully no one thinks I was putting down IPMS or Goodguys, both put on great shows, I was just comparing them as a measure of my success.

    90 cars at a first time show, not bad. That's more than what I've seen at goodguys or ipms. Looking forward to next year

    Wow....


    I don't know. When's the last time there was a decent model car show at all in Colorado, Sunday, Saturday, or any day of the week.

    I'm gonna try to take your spectacularly useless comment and put a positive spin on it.

    I put this together from scratch to go along with one of the biggest car cruises in the area, 4 miles and 6 lanes. 4000 cars, 10000 spectators. The cruise starts at 10 until 5. Every parking lot in the area will be jam packed with show cars and people. I figured 9-11 will give people time to come in and set up and leave or hang out without getting stuck maneuvering around everyone else. It's a people's choice so I want as much public traffic to stick their head in and see what us weird model builders do in our spare time.

    At any rate, it's my first time putting this on, so silly or not, I'm hoping it goes well, and if it does, make it an annual thing and bigger and better.

    When you throw your Sunday model show up in Aspen, post it up and I'll be sure to check it out.

    Sorry that your comment brought out the a-hole in me. I spent a lot of time getting this organized and being dismissed as "silly" hit below the belt.

    Stealing is stealing, no matter where you park it.

    And on a side note, last week I parked my faithful little Saturn and picked up a 2001 Lincoln Towncar. Me and my kids (who barely fit anymore) got sick of that little box.

    Anyone want to spilt some Smooth-On silicone?
    I buy it locally by the gallon, but it's really too much for what I do right now. I used a third of it up and it went stale and thickened up. I can thin it but it reduces the tear strength.

    So anyone who is a small time user or new to moldmaking want to jump in to help defray the cost and waste? I'll pick it up, should be about $100, you would also pay for shipping and the containers I'll split it up in. I done it before with some local guys but no one wants any right now. Looking for 2-3 "partners"

    Been active for years on the HH board, layitlow, sold a few things on emodelcars, and my ebay ID is poppadiaz.

    Let me know ASAP, I have some new molds to make!
