  1. NNL East 32 Report

    Rest is highly over rated! We started planning next years event a few months ago so there's always something to do throughout the year!
  2. Bulk Photo Resizer

    Yup, I use Irfanview for all my photo editing needs.

  4. Palmer model kit history?

    As mentioned, Palmer box art is interesting and fun to collect. Many years ago in the hobby you'd see them at swap meets for $5 or $10, so I started to collect them...

  6. Scale Motorsport Stuff

    Ron, Scale Motorsport will be doing their final sell off at NNL East tomorrow. They are not "going out of business". Matthew is shutting down a thriving business for other pursuits. He had offered the business for sale, there was interest, but nobody came through with the $$
  7. NNL East - - April 21st - - Are you going..???

    I have confirmation that our British friends are already at the hotel. Our annual French visitor flew into Montreal today. It's on!
  8. What Irked You Today?

    Ya know, nothing ever goes smoothly! I took today off to finish up some NNL details. I have been working at remote locations lately, which includes dedicating Sundays to travel and returning home late on Fridays. First thing in the morning? My wife wakes me up to say there is no hot water. I go to the basement and find the furnace room flooded, a saddle valve someone else installed for a long gone furnace humidifier had sprung a leak right over the water heater. So there went my morning! Replaced the valve, vacuumed all the water and am still waiting for water heater to dry out enough to relight the pilot.

  10. NNL East - - April 21st - - Are you going..???

    Last year we had 100 rooms and sold out. This year we have the whole hotel and sold out. We have gotten a lot of emails asking us to book additional hotels. People are not aware that we have to sign a contract with specific guarantees with each one of them. If we don't make the forecast, we pay for the rooms out of our pockets. So it's not that easy and not worth the financial risk. We already have all the work we can handle!

There will also be two gymnasiums full of display models built by the best builders in the country, who will be happy to meet you.
