Well I just got back from Kentucky and have had my fill of fried chicken and sweet tea!!! Really need to hit the gym now!!! Wonderfest was a great as always and the show reached record attendance, and model entries in the great modeler contest counting into the 500’s, I Got a lot  of laughs when I read the comments to my “end of the blog” prank and especially liked being cussed out in bad Chinese!! HAAAA! Sorry for the scare but couldn’t pass up a good joke!!! Went to the Air force flight museum in Dayton on the first day there, and saw so many incredible planes and rockets!! This museum was so amazing and have to go back for more next year,,,,, got lots of pics from both the museum and the convention, and  I’ll put up a few everyday this week..   Met a lot of great folks and venders that make some awesome model and figure collectibles. I’ll start posting those as well with links to the venders that had everything for those looking for that hard to find kits. Deg and his brother Greg hung out with My friend Nelson and I over the weekend and had a lot of good fun, food and laughs!!  Just to much fun.  So with that said I have to get to work but here are some treats from the show. Enjoy,  and happy Tuesday
