The Vorlon, the Dragula, the Ohio, just too many great models to list. Looks like a good gathering of modelers, great stuff.

The rally car covered in

The rally car covered in dirt is my favorite one.

Not to be rude,and I'm sure I couldn't do as good a job on it,but did the Millenium Falcon's cokpit light up like that in the movie? It's like he wanted to make it look cooler,but really it's just distracting.

Dirt Car

Honestly the dirt car that was one of my favorites of the show. It had some construction issues but it sure had an awesome vibe about it!

I'm sure the Falcon did light up but not to that extent, the same builder did a y-wing as well and I liked that one a bit better.

I so want to build that Falcon but it's about a $200 with shipping most likely around $50 it would just set me back to much, so I'll stick with the MPC one for now!

IPMS Ontario thanks you!

Thanks! We had a lot of cars this year as a model car club brought about 60 model kits, it was great with a lot of talent! Heck, they won best of show!

There was a lot of Sci Fi this year but most of the entries had been photographed for the IPMS Silicon Valley event which I also reviewed here on CDX.

Cheers!

Great review leo! I had really good time. Sorry I missed you at Macross Con I had to work over time both days! Looks like it was a blast. Oh how I miss Phony Toy-go-round. I hope to have a store front some day like that.
Take care,

Thanks TY

Thanks Ty it was great meeting up with you and your friends at the show. I was going to email you this today but you beat me to it!

Thanks for bringing out all those great items, I just wish I had some extra cash to get more items from you. Your table brought back a lot of memories! Long Live Pony Toy!

Cheers!
