If anyone is going next week, please send me a forum message.  I will be there the entire show.  I would enjoy putting faces to names.

So far, I've only heard from Ed.  I can also be reached through Facebook messenger as Stuart Malone.  Same goofy face there as here.

I didn't even think of taking pictures.  Thanks for the suggestion.  I'll throw my camera in the car.

There were 900 modelers with 2808 models at Nats this year.  I spent 3 hours in the contest room taking pictures of builds that caught my eye.  In total, I was able to get about 90-100 models photographed.  The room was very crowded!  Here are the ones I took of WWI armored cars and aircraft.  Please be patient, the images are slow to load from my public dropbox folder.

The quality of builds on all tables was insane.  My only guess is the judges had to borrow their grandchildren's eyeballs to spot the tiniest of flaws.  I entered my Millenium Falcon and Space airbrush, both of which I have posted here, and a 1/72nd scale tank.  I didn't get my Junkers J.I done in time.  I took it along to work on it but was having too much fun at the convention.  Here's a picture of the trophies my entries were awarded on my hobby table.

Oh no! Swing and a miss! You still won getting to see 2000+ models. I always find the best thing I take away from shows is inspiration...and maybe some swag...

The best thing was meeting other modelers and vendors.  Almost all of them are just normal dudes like us who love the hobby.

Hi Stuart

Many thanks for posting those amazing images of the WW1 entries at the IPMS Nationals. There's some jaw dropping work there for sure and we really appreciate you posting such clear images to make us all drool over the quality of the work on show.

I hope you enjoyed some great bargains in the vendor room too! It's great to see WW1 subjects still getting plenty of love from the modellers.
