Recommended Posts

ACME, in association with FineScale Modeler, is pleased to announce we will host the 25th annual Southern Nationals model show and contest online!
Nothing will be able to replace seeing friends, eye-balling models up close and personal, or shopping the vendors. But we went to work looking for an alternative that would allow us to still celebrate scale-car modeling with all of you who have helped make Southern Nationals the amazing model show that it is.
Moving the 25th Southern Nationals online means that you will be able enter your models in a number of contest categories and see the efforts of other modelers, too. We are finalizing scheduling, categories, and contest details and will have more information for you very soon.
All of us as ACME and FineScale Modeler can’t wait to see you and your models at the show!

I would consider joining in on the fun, but if I have to join Facebook to participate, I'm out.

HI!

I was pleasantly surprised yesterday to learn that my So-Can Speedster Bonneville lakester received the President's Award in the ACME online show. It is quite an honour, and I'd like to thank those involved. What a thrill!

Regards,

Claude Thibodeau

I'm curious as to how the peoples choice was worded. There's a big difference in picking the best versus the one you like.

Hi Bob!

I read that the voting determined the "winner" in each category, and that vehicles that finished 2-3-4 in each receive a "peoples choice" plaque.

The other awards, I understand, are judged by a panel of ACME heads. 

But, I'm certain they  tell more about  that on their web site.

Hi Tim!

Thank you so much.

The truth is that at most shows, people are puzzled by a "lakester", Many can appreciate the details, but have few references as to what it is. Hence, my choice to parody the famous So-Cal white & red paint scheme. If one car was widely shown in a myriad publication, it must be the So-Cal Coupe! 

That may have helped with the judges...
