It was a good show. We had 300 models entered in the contest, a nice selection of vendors, and lots of familiar faces were mingling in the crowd.  It will take some time to get the website updated with a sampling of this year's models.

That it was a good show. Some of the vendors were doing quite a brisk business and the models that were entered were truly awesome. One participant had a diorama of a junkyard that was among the best that I've seen.

And the food was excellent (as always).  :)

That diorama is built by one of the CPMC members, and it is over 25 years old.  He occasionally adds another junker to it. It is featured on our club's website.

Go to http://classicplastic.org/people.html  then click on Joe Baril's name.  If you click on each photo, you will see a higher resolution version.

Did you notice the very small shadow-box diorama depicting a young modeler's bedroom?  I almost missed it.  It had buttons on it you could push to turn on various lights in the room.  It was also well done.

I missed that one. I was occupied checking out the junkyard diorama.
