Door Prizes:

All generously donated by Ken. Cheers to DB, Jimbo & JMSracer who by random chip draw won the above door prizes respectively.

Marshal Award:

Unlucky in the random draw but consider the rest of us lucky to have such a dedicated and regular participant help us ensure that the event went without a glitch – Cheers to MiA!!!  :good:

It was nice to see Joe too – and to all of the builders and to everyone who participated – Cheers!

  1. Art,
    Thanks a million for hosting, and posting this event. Beautiful looking pictures.
    Macro camera setting sure keeps me on my toes with respect to the finer build details.
    Ken

  2. I’m glad that it will. Models that can stand up to a close up shot are special. When you finish a step in a build do you say “that’s good enough” or “I can’t get it any better than that”?

  3. MIA, you forgot your door prize for marshalling!
    An all white Hot Wheels Lotus Esprit from the “James Bond collection – The Spy Who Loved Me”.
    You mentioned you knew a young fella that liked 007? I’ll bring it to the next race.
    Cheers,
    Ken

  4. Hey guys
    Glad you had a good turnout. Sorry I could not attend. Had the furnace break down over the weekend and was dealing with that until Tues. Finally back up and toasty now. See you at the next one.
    here’s a cool poster I found.
