added a quick Wish List form you can download. We know that
once you get to the show, you can easily get caught up in
the event and distracted. Then you forget to get something
you specifically came to the event to try and find. Maybe
a model part to finish a model project, or a specific model
kit you're were looking for.
the quick Wish List, you can write down what you need and
what you're looking to get, bring it to the show, and you'll
be sure not to forget anything.
30.00 for 1 Table
50.00 for 2 Tables
60.00 for 3 Tables
Table is 8-feet long (96 inches).
You don't have to be a "company"
or a "business" to be a Vendor. If you've got a
few hundred (thousands?) of plastic model kits, and you want
to "thin the herd" a bit, or sell off some multiples
and duplicates, selling as a vendor can help turn those extra
kits into cash. Vendor tables are limited, so we only
ask that you have plenty of models kits to fill the table(s)
you get. The more the better.
that "60 tables" sounds like a lot, but many vendors
have been selling at our shows for years, so many of the tables
go fast, and are sold way ahead of time. The closer to the
event date it gets, the faster they sell. If you wait too
long, there might be 20 tables left, and then a week later
when you go to get one - nothing. So please - order your
tables as soon as possible.

Choice" Classes with Awards
Choice" means - At 11:00 AM we began to give ballots
out to attendees, who peruse each class individually and make
their choice on which model they believe is the best quality.
that the people attending the event are mostly modelers, so
they do know what to look for and they do know about cars
and models. This allows a wider and more diverse group of
people to look at the various models and see what you've built.
