I thought Al had 'retired' that pickup, even I've seen that one. LOL

Nice pics Paul!

Thanks for the pics of the big rigs. In the pic of the lowboy with the Cat, right behind it is the horse van pulling the trailer. I watched that guy build it on www.24thscalemodeltruckforum.co.uk/ It is absolutely fantastic build and the inside of that trailer is completely finished. Its a great bunch of blokes on that site as well.

Military models show what can be done with dioramas and weathering. They nearly ALL had one thing in common sadly lacking in our car/truck modeling . . . people! Figures bring static dioramas to life, absolutely.
We could use a wider selection of people and tho a few aftermarket "home businesses" help fill the void, the big model companies still mostly won't include them in kits. We are the poorer for their cost-cutting.
Thanx for great fotos and inspirations. Maybe someday I'll get started on a rally dio I always dreamed of building, Stratos flying along African roads.

As Paul has mentioned, we met up yesterday but neither of us thought to take a photo of the meeting!!! DOH!!

I entered seven cars, two motorcycles, my two tank dios and the Battle Droid and S.T.A.P. in the competition but didn't win anything accept three 'Very Highly Commended' awards.

This was the winner of the 'Cars' class:

Some really beautiful armour, planes and ships. I just wish that IPMS would have a change in attitude toward automotive. I would probably rejoin then.
