I'm going to try - I'm 6 hours from Houston, so I'll end up making a weekend out of it. I'm going to Model Fiesta35 this coming weekend in San Antonio - that's only 3 hours from me.

Sounds great! I'm primarily going to shop some vendors, hopefully purchase some nice kits...and to see some entries obviously. I really wanted to attend a couple seminars, but they waited so long to put the schedule up I had to make other plans in the interim...

Some information to pass on about the show's theme:

"Vintage Models"

Model kits that were designed and first produced before 1975 are eligible. The kit can be a reissue as long as the sprus have not been retooled. Everyone entering in the vintage category is encouraged to bring somthing to authinticate that the model is eligible (such as the box with the kit number) in order to speed up the authintication process.

It is.....and you should go. It's a total blast. My son and I went last year and if all goes well I might be there this year. If I don't go I'll certainly miss all the fun. My only hang up with going to places like that is I like to spend money. Indifferent

Looks like I'll have to skip it this year fellas. My wife suffered from a ruptured brain aneurism on 21 February and is still making what looks like an almost full recovery. I do want to make the HAMS show on July 30th though. Have fun to all who go to Modelmania. It's a true blast.Yes
