Will be there for 10 on saturday. Looks enormous, not been to it before, went to a model railway show a few years back it was rather empty at that. Have printed out the maps and highlighted the things to see. Sausage sandwich and flask of coffee prepared soon. Nice.

I’ve not been since 2014. There’s a hell of a lot to see (and buy). You won’t be disappointed!

I went few years back as part of our local club. I was there all weekend and I was amazed at the foot fall over the weekend. It is a very popular show with some great work on the stands. Unfortunately I am unable to get there this year but hopefully next year.

What are the queues to get in like?

Last time I went (2014) there was quite a big que. Just have to be patient and remember the IPMS people on the door are all unpaid volunteers doing their best.All forgotten once inside though.

I envy you lot that will be there as we have nothing like this in the frozen north of Montana. In this way I do miss sunny California. Enjoy the show and take lots of pictures to share...please.
Thank you, Rick H.

I have a lucky friend going this year on a free ticket won at a recent Kinectic competition that I was judging. One of our best airplane modelers, his name ia Jay Chan and will be following Raymond, boss of Kinectic to the show.

Next time I will ask if judges get the same priviledge as winners before being appointed. :tears-of-joy:

Good luck to your wallets and hope to see some pictures.

Cheers,
Richard
