Great photographs. If I could ever find a display or meet like this within reasonable driving distance, I would stand there and look at the models until security threw me out at closing. Thanks again for posting.

Day 1 in Gütersloh:
Santa, please bring me a better camera! It's raining outside, it's dark in the hall where most of the models are hanging out, and I can hardly take a decent picture! Even ISO 800 speed won't let me take a natural light pic (oops, no tripod), and the flash harshness is horrible. Oh well, here's something to give you an idea... absolutely fantastic modeling... I've seen some nice models in the States, but here, the modeling precision combined with engineering details and overall degree-of-difficulty simply put the rest to shame. I hope at the very least, some serious modelers out there can see this, and take the challenge to work at this level (I hope I don't just give up and throw my tools in the dumpster...).

BTW, Argentina was taking on Nigeria while I looked at the boats, and I as I write this, the England/USA game is at 1:1... I wonder if anyone is even watching back home?

Pat, you must think you've died and went to heaven.

Tremendous modeling!! Thanks for bringing us the photos.

Where's the damn cat! I need to take out some aggression on it.

Truly a great report Pat.

It isn't often one gets to experience such inspiration first hand.
Thanks for taking the time to post your photos.
