HVHMG 2015 Vendor Room Additions

I always say, at every model show I go to, that I'm not going to buy anything. I have too many kits already, etc,. etc. That lasts for about 5 minutes once I actually make it into the vendor room. Then, I see stuff I just HAVE to have and it comes home with me. Here are the new models I added to my stash this year...
My first Hubley kit. Looks challenging.

The HVHMG show is about the only one where I add non-automotive models to the stash. Now, to see if I can actually build any of these before next year's show...

HVHMG 2015 Show Favorites

Yesterday was the HVHMG annual show, and I am the official photographer of the show, a position I volunteered for. I make sure during the day that every single model is photographed, and there were a lot of them- by time the show was over, I had taken more than 350 photographs, counting the awards ceremony. Here are some of my favorite models from the show- starting with my only entry-

Winner of Best Automotive

Best Ship, Best In Show

People's Choice

Best Aircraft

Best Figure. I took part in judging the figures again, something I really enjoy- and learn a lot from.

In the end...I ended up taking a third in class for my Bill Elliott car! Granted, there were only three people in the class, so we all got an award...but hey, I'll take it!
