GMO NNL photos ... from June 10th in Minneapolis

... well, Bloomington to be more accurate!

Just signed up on this website, and to start off with my first post, I'm posting a link to my photo album of the GMO (Greater Minnesota Open) NNL show that was held at the Comfort Inn in Bloomington on June 10th.

For a short intro to myself, I started building models back when I was 9 and continued strong through my teens, until I eased off the hobby for various reasons. I would still build the occasional kit, but never on a full-time basis. A couple of years ago, we moved into our first house, and then the hobby came back to me big-time.

This was the very first model car show I've ever attended, and had a lot of fun (along with wishing that I could have brought more $$ along, but maybe it was a good thing I put a limit on myself!). I hope you enjoy the photos!

Thanks for the welcome! Yep, I managed to sneak in a few of my own models into my own photo album! :wink:

Most of the cars I brought were show cars: the Chuck Wagon, the Popcorn Wagon, Vending Machine, Granny's Hot Rod (Beverly Hillbillies), Lil Coffin ... but to take up more table space, I also brought along the 1/16th Revell California Charger dragster, the Laurel & Hardy Model T, the Mongoose funny car, and the recent AMT/Model King Warbucks Mustang funny car reissue (sans decals -- the decals literally fell apart in the water for the most part, and the ones that didn't were #$%# to work with so I gave up on them).

A photographer was there taking pictures of select models for possible publication in "Model Cars Magazine" and both the Chuck Wagon and the Laurel & Hardy T were picked! Funny thing is, my wife has said her two very favorite models that I've built were those two ... while I would pick the Popcorn Wagon and maybe some others. I wonder what she sees that I don't?? :lol:
