Here are photos of the upcoming 1/72 Orion Shuttle from 2001:

Cockpit and cabin interiors - the lighting guys will love this!

And a separate, smaller 1/350 kit:

A hint of a space station kit?

WOW!  The quality of the work is mind blowing.  Have they released the information as to how many kits were entered?  Thanks for posting this photos.

I believe it was around 2,600 models.  Someone correct me if they have actual data.

Did you see the idiot who used the American Flag under his ship models? That is very disrespectful to the flag.

I apologize for the limited coverage, as a friend was taking the majority of photos.  I missed a lot of really good models, like the full scratch CH-54 Skycrane.  I also missed the dumpster and the KFC diorama.  Crying

Here is a link to all of my photos. Although I took a lot of photos I missed a bunch of amazing builds. I had to ensure that I used my time to not only take pics but to also stop and enjoy the amazing talent exhibited here.

You're close G. It was 6280 entries.

Thanks for posting that G and thank you Joe for providing them. I have several I can send you G if you want to put them up as well.

The "Yellow Submarine" was entered in the Boise chapter in 19. It won first in it's class.

Joe caught me taking a close up of something.

I missed that one Steve.  Don't know how though, as it is a honking big model, and I love the Skycrane.  I had the Revell kit with the cargo pod and 105mm howitzer.

A friend of mine once commented that the Nationals was like the Olympics of modeling.

The pressure to perform is high for us guys from Hawaii, since the "Hawaii Mafia" has set a high standard for us to uphold.  A former Mafia member got the George Lee Memorial Award for his 1/144 Airfix 727 - it had a complete scratchbuilt interior and tires turned on a lathe!  He was working on the interior while he was living in Hawaii, so we got to see the components being built.  Individual hand made seats...  Indifferent  I can only dream of attempting to climb that mountain!

Hey 'G', thanks so much for the photos. I've seen some of the stuff on You Tube, but your phots are far better. Loooove the skeletal German in the figures section!

Joe I couldn't open your link, but thanks to 'G' I was able to see your pics. Thank you so much. What great photos, although I must say I feel a bit like Hutch, don't know wether to feel inspired or demoralised. Awesome, awesome work on those tables.
