You just show up and pay your admission.
By the way, NMMA, which puts on this show, has no dues, and is totally free to join.

Under two months to go to the show. Get busy at your modeling benches! Start saving your nickels and dimes for the vendor room.

Some of the vendors will have after market items but there will also be bases and dirorama related items, reference books and back issues of magazines, the club member table always has a wide range of items and several of the vendors will have paints and weathering related items.
See you there.

This a very fine show that is worth attending. Hoping to see Armorama friends and members there. I will be presenting an award for best USMC build in honor of my father, Lt. Col. William E. Cross, Jr. He was a veteran of THREE wars (Saipan, Korea and VN).

Will also lend my limited abilities to help out good friend Georg Eyerman on judging. If you are attending, please volunteer some of your time.

Both builds are 'done' now to get the writeups finished ahead of time.
I'll be there mid-morning and will judge if there are open sessions.

I'll be the tall guy in glasses with the 'shelf-queen' build.
Again...

Bill, you are right! That IS what you looked like.

I saw the presentation of your Dad's award, very touching. Your dad sounds like an interesting character. But in the scrum of getting models off the table and picking up judging sheets (and flying out of there for a 5 hr drive home) I missed getting to say hi.
Are you coming to Granitecon in Nashua next month?

The 1/35th Vietnam M113 was yours? I poured over it for quite a while. Very nice build.
Like Bill, I missed connecting a model to a name to a face and actually having a human conversation w you.
Are you coming to Nashua NH next month?
