Same here, Rob. It's been since last February. I'd ask that you look at my painting. I think I've solved the orange peel issues I was having at JaxCon and I hope you'll agree. I plan on being there when the doors open Saturday.

Is the group shot at the October 22 show or this weekend in Tampa?

Here's something else to put on your agenda - October 29, 2011, Castro Farm, Ocala will be a 1:1 car show and FAST has been invited to display our scale builds. More details later.

On the 22nd in Ft. Lauderdale.

Oh, and Adam, I am bringing a whole bunch of goodies to distribute (stickers and lapel pins) for the masses!

Can't wait. I've got 18 models packed and ready to go. I'd take more but then I'd have to have nerves of steel! :lol:

You oughta be here in Tampa - what a great show and a million 1:1 beauties too! I took a pic of a wonderful (?) rat rod just for you Dr. Cranky. I'll pics up when I get home. The director of that Deuce movie is here. Lots and lots of wonderful things going on.

Yep, I took about 200+ photos as well, I'll get them posted up soon. My photos of the models however are terrible. The lighting was so bad, macro didn't work very well so many pictures are blurry or had to be shot from further away with standard auto-focus.

Congratulations to Rob & Fatkidd for placing at the show. What a great weekend meeting and talking with you guys. Let's go make some hinges.

Next year's theme is going to be rusty, crusty & dusty - you need to be there Dr. Cranky.

A HUGE THANK YOU to MAGS for putting on a fantastic show!

Jim, not tooting your own horn, also got a handful of awards. You had some real great work there pal.

And I'm also planning my theme build already. I'm thinking a 60's muscle car built up 70's style.

I was thinking of taking one of my builds and setting it out in the yard for a year. That should get it crusty and dusty.

Oh sure. While you guys are having a great time with model eye candy, I'll be traveling to Chicago for a meeting with my Veterans group. It's not fair! I think somebody should have checked my schedule before determining the date of the show :)

Hope you all have a great time - post some pics!
