Brag books are very important if you don't build out of the box!

Not sure what I'm bringing to show yet, but I've got a tower of Takom kits to deliver to reviewers ;)

Okay I am home, Mike and I had a great time catching up with all the "tread heads" over the weekend. We both spent some time judging individual builds as well as Viignettes and dioramas, and I gave a seminar on using EPS foam to build buildings and rubble, etc.

We didn't spend too much time or money in the vendor room, but I did score some Alpine figures, some AK weathering pencils, and two special kits, the Das Werks Faun and AFV German Sea mines. Another big project is brewing!

I will let Mike chime in on his booty and bling, but I am a wee bit embarrassed to report that I took 3 Advanced Golds, Best German, Best Diorama and Judges Best of Show. :blush:

OK...got tons of pics but won't them all today. John got me back home before noon but the day was spent trying to get prepped for AP Bio tomorrow...I didn't take a pic of what I picked up, but I'll grab one later-- basically the Miniart Lee kit with full interior, a Dragon StuG III E kit, a set of ICM British WWI tank figures, and I won a set of Dragon Soviet figures from the Cherkassy Pocket in the raffle.

As great as Doc's photography skills are, there is nothing like seeing these pieces in person...I didn't do this first one much justice...was getting tired when I took it...

These two were something else though-- and my phone certainly doesn't do it justice either...the Best of Show:

And a close tie- but winning Best Dio:

Much to John's chagrin, many folks asked about the bees...and no I didn't put them up to it Doc ;)

Only 3 Junior entries-- all were nice but my favorite was the young lass with this tank...

And the other two:
