Hi Andy

Thanks for the photos. It looks like you had a great day! I'm sad I couldn't get away from the shop to come along.

There are some excellent builds there - including Gavin's stunningly weathered VW Samba "Sleepah".

All the best

Andy,
Thanks for taking the time to photograph all the auto models entered. Almost all were impressive to say the least. Like Rowan said, it was a thrill to see Gavin's VW bus there. I sure hope that it placed.

I do have some difficulties is figuring out the scale of some of the entries if they were released in more then one scale. The AAR Gurney F1 Spa winning car has me really stumped. It looks like the 1/20 scale kit, but very well could be the 1/12 version. That's my all time favorite F1 car.

Well looking at the card at the rear of the model, it seems to say 1/24th.

Andy,
Thanks. That's what I meant to type. I'm just so use to typing 1/20 scale for open wheel cars that it's another case of brain fade.

Cars are getting more and more popular as the manufactures are kitting just about everything and anything.
