Squadron eaglequest 2018

Agreed, that Jasta 5 diorama was the star of the show. It was truly stunning.

The building, cars, aircraft, figures, service equipment, scenery, everything was to a super high standard.

Thanks for the response, Tony. Sorry I missed you and mark, would have been good to get a team photo with all of us. All the LSP guys had very nice work showing, and I'm glad they all got some bling.

I didn’t see anyone I knew while I was there, traffic was pretty light, only about a dozen people when I was there around 11:30

I was there then, I thought I might have seen you across the room, but it was a quick glimpse.

Tony was there as well.

The Dude got silver for his mosquito, and I think 2 golds for his two Corsairs. Ernie got the eagle for his Felixstowe. I got a bronze for the Snipe and gold for my Corsair.

Yup, I also got a gold for my ' Mimmi' fokker D VII but my 2 1/48 jets got smoked. I think overall the LSP guys represented well. Was the snipe in 'ootb' yours? If so that was really nice.  :coolio:

Sounds like pretty good showing!

 

Who is going to Nats?  Not bringing anything but the winds are saying we will be significantly down on vendors this year.  I know we have the indomitable MARU coming over from the UK to feel how heat REALLY feels ( hang in there MARU! ).

Shows are a good time to catch up with you all.  And then there is Telford...

In jets, the story was 1/48 Tamiya Tomcats. There were plenty on the tables, as well as F-15s and F-16s, all done to a very high standard.

Matter of fact, there wasn't one single 1/32 scale jet anywhere on the tables, which was a crying shame.

1/32 scale just isn't popular here, there's just three or four of us around here who work in that scale.

1/48 is king here, and the poor misguided folks around here won't even consider anything different.

Not even a Russian jet, of which there was only one, in 1/48 of course, on the OOB table.

Ernke:

 

I do remember at Nats last year we had a pretty good showing.  Hopefully this year we'll have another good showing.  But even at our own club meetings 1/48 and 1/32 are lumped into the same category. :-(
