Too bad I missed that one.

But, as all of us Cubs fans are famous for saying, "Wait until next year!"

Fantastic group of ships represented.

Thank you for taking the time to adjust, crunch, and fix all those pictures for us.

Sure did!

Most impressive was Admiralty Modelworks' new USS Spokane, but there were many other very nice looking newbies about as well...

Hi Mark!

Well I must say that this was a very good show, very unique and good level of ship models, both variety and quality!
I was able to recognize some of David Griffith's models, Kenny's Bull Of Samar and a few from Bob Cicconi. Eventually a couple form Mike Tailor

Excellent models
Thank you for a great photo coverage!
