hey Mike, sorry to hear that. when we bought our house that very same issue came up..turns out, the power was turned on before the water, so when the water came on and hit those hot coils it broke them..maybe that same happened to yours?

Hi guys,

I'll be manning the Legend Productions table in the secondary vendor room. I've got 3 tables of fresh resin! We've stocked up with new releases and some old favorites.

Please stop by and say hello!

Ryan

Check out the live feed from the convention. Go to the IPMS website click on the Nationals symbol and it will take you to the live feed.

Gentlemen,
Glad to see a bunch of folks going. I will be there as well, both as a vendor and as a entrant. I will be at table 105 (next to Fine Scale Modeler) along a side wall. Pop by my table and visit, sit a bit, hide your stash from SWMBO, cover me for a bathroom break, whatever. I will be selling some kits I will never build even if I live to be 200. (sigh)
Also abunch of fairly rare garage resin kits. So please, pop by and say 'Hi'. I will be wandering around a bit, shopping and looking at the model entries, just like y'all.

I am entering a few kits from the various campaigns, my Chieftain from Brit Armor, SU-85 from Totally Tamiya, Crusader Dio from 1/48 v.1, some Matchbox OOB and my STRV 103b from Braille Battlefield. Let us compare notes after the show and tally up what Armorama may bring home! Good luck and I hope you find that kit you have been after!

Just got back, and WOW!! Very awesome, lots of entries in the contest, very cool, And I saw the huge 1/35 scale diorama there, very nice.

Anyway, I bought a bunch of stuff at the vendor rooms (AFV M18 hellcat, T34/76,Super Pershing, Italeri Katyusha, and various figures)

Boxes stacked like 6 ft high at places was very freaking awesome. And some good deals too. I had a Blast
