Just got from this year's show at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum. This year the show was absolutely packed. The contest tables were initially a bit bare looking when we got there but by the afternoon were fairly full. Lots of vendors were there too. 

Here are some pics from the contest tables.

I think this was done by someone on LSP.

Can't believe it was 1/144

I was curious about the model on the right so here's the entry card:

Another 1/200 ship but this time the Yamato.

Lastly, another Arizona build, just a different presentation.

There were lots more models but it was too busy later on to get pics of them ,much less see them all as the crowds filled in. One section I missed was the Junior section. What was on display there would give us hope that the hobby won't die off with our generation.

Overall I have to say it was a great success. Can't wait until next year.

Thank you so much for taking the time to photograph the competition tables, as the work was topflight. I always feel guilty picking out a favorite but the cutaway Space Shuttle was simply brilliant and I never saw the shuttle built to that level of detail. I always seem to come away from competitions wishing I had the skills, room and time to build just one large scale ship.

Amazing stuff, having built a couple of those 1/144 Eduard ME-262's I can appreciate how much work went into that little gem.  Really liked the Flak gun dio in the bombed out church, very realistic.
