Yep.  I'll just have to be on the lookout for wandering trucks. 😄

Made a quick trip to the show.  Was in and out but was able to take some pics:

 

Is the sentry being prepped for a new coat of paint?   I hope they rebuild the cockpit.

Are those raised panel lines on the fuselage?  : )

Was hoping there'd be more space models than what I saw:

Wow what a fun day!  Hats off to IPMS Hamilton and the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum.  The models on display were inspiring.  The F-4E, F4U Corsair, and F6F with folded wings in the pictures crackerjazz posted were built by ARC member Marvin20.  Nice pictures by the way.  The only group photo I am aware of is the one Lost_Erik posted.  It’s him, Marvin20 and myself.  We met at the Lancaster at noon.

 

I was great to have it right in an aircraft museum.  Well worth the trip.  As far as packing models I had a plastic tote box with 2 inch foam on the bottom and then toothpicks to hold the models in place.  All of the models arrived intact.  BTW one of my models was a 1/72 Gemini spacecraft with astronaut on a tether (not the one in the photos, his was nicer).  The astronaut must have had a wild ride shaking around on the wire but he arrived ok too.

Hi CJ , 

 

Great picks - thanks for sharing!  It was a fun show and I certainly enjoyed myself - even without any medals this year - lol :rolleyes:.  

 

I was finally able to pick up the Revell Vostok kit that I've been looking for, for years.  Haven't built one of those since 1970.

 

Thanks again - Ret

Nice pictures and some great builds:thumbsup:. Is it always held at the CWH Museum around March 24ish? If so I may need to make the trip North next year with an armor build or two as its only about 5.5 hours from my area.

 

Good stuff!

 

Regards.
