Hey Danno... good morning sir.. So I tried to send you a PM but it said you couldn't receive them. So i will post what I was gonna ask you here.. how's it going? Hey I had a random question for you..... actually 2 questions... first I wanted  to ask on the A9 Replica Class is that limited to 1/24 & 1/25th only? Because I was looking online at the classes and rules bit didnt see the scale in that class. If i am right all 1/16th scale builds have to go into large scale right? 

The second question is if I would like to sponsor a class what all do I need to do. Well how much is it and is there a list of what class i can choose to sponsor?

 I know the count down is on until the DSC is here and I have a lot to finish before then. Hope i can get it done in time.

No problem with posting your question here, Chris!  I can answer your questions and anyone else can listen in . . . they might have the same questions!!

First things - yeah, my IM is full and I haven't had a chance since discovering it to delete anything.  I'll get that fixed shortly.


Regarding Desert Scale Classic:  Yes, most classes are limited to 1/24-1/25 scale.  We have a "Large Scale" Class (A25) for 1/23 and larger, and a "Small Scale" Class (A24) for 1/26 and smaller.  There are a few classes that accept all scales:  Motorcycles (A26), Modified Die Cast (A27), Miscellaneous (A28) and Dioramas (A29).  And, new for DSC12 (2016) will be two classes for functional slot cars - more on that later.

You are correct:  1/16 builds go into "Large Scale" regardless of subject matter (with the three exceptions listed above).  You'll note that the rules indicate all classes A1 through A23 are limited to 1/24-1/25 only.  

Sponsoring a Class (trophy package) is as simple as letting me know.  Each class has three trophies (1st, 2nd, and 3rd places) and sponsorship for each class package is $35.00.  

I'll shoot you a list of classes available; with the exception of a few sustaining sponsorships, trophy packages are on a first-come, first-served basis.

Yep, the Final Countdown is on!   We really, really want to see the finished product on the table this year.  WE HAVE SOME EXCITING THINGS IN STORE THIS YEAR . . . refinements and evolutionary improvements, we hope!

I think it would be cool if forum members would wear their forum screen name while at the show or plan to meet up while at the show to get a little face time.

I added my screen name to my ancient Moonlight Modelers badge last year... didn't seem to get much traction...but that's okay.
