I had no intention of entering any builds for judging. I was only going to put them on the display table. At the last minute I figured why not. I have to say I a man pleasantly surprised with my results. The '49 Merc won best in class for pre 1950's custom.

Hey man!

Nice work on those kits, and it was great to see you out at the show yesterday!

It can be stressful entering a show, but with the kind of work you do, it's clearly not as much a worry! :)

Your niece does good work too!

Congrats on doing so well. It's always great to see enthusiasm and talent combined!

Hey Faust,

Thanks man!

Nice to see you made it over hear, thanks. I am sure the rest of the gang would enjoy learning a bit about you, but we would enjoy seeing your work even more. Feel free to post up in our intruduction forum.


Shay, what the hell is a Jammy Bar Stewart? Lol. At least it has the word bar in it so I kinda understand. Rofl

Congratulations Curt. I had a good weekend too. Participated in the IPMS show in Salt Lake City. I managed to pull out a First and a Second in Dioramas. I'm tied up with doctors today so it will be tomorrow before I post photos.
