Rob,it does not state on the flyer who is putting the show on. I'm pretty sure it's the husband and wife team(Frank and Gail)who are also vendors

Thanks Wayne. Hmm............just realized there isn't a catagory for my post-apoc or deathrace type stuff. And I didn't use two different bodies for them.

I'm not sure where you heard that statement made but this show is a first time contest for a swap meet that has been ongoing for a couple of years now. Unfortunately there are no model contests in Florida that can boast the "largest Southeast model contest". That label would have to probably fall on the Atlanta NNL which is this coming weekend.

The show had 27 entrants I think with a total of 198 builds. I had a good time, but I'm not a fan of popular vote judging.

I really enjoyed the show, there were alot of great builds. Met some nice people, everyone seemed very enthusiastic and having a good time. Picked up some good deals from the swap meet. I hope the show will grow.

I forgot to bring a camera, did anyone out there who went to the show take any pictures?
