Went yesterday. Got there at opening and spent half a day. 5 buildings of exhibits, dealers, and displays. Be sure to check
the boxes underneath of the tables at the dealer booths----
lots of nice stuff at good prices. Something for everyone. Food is a little pricey but that's to be expected at this kind of venue. Lots of people but friendly crowd.
This is the first time I've had to miss it in 10 years. It really is an awesome show.
I don't go so much to buy things -- not to say I won't if something strikes my fancy -- but to check out new products, talk with some of the manufacturers, and see the impressive modeling work on display.
Everyone in the hobby owes it to himself to go to a show of that scale a few times.
I got some details I was in need of, a NYC resource CD on structures from the historical society, a Bethlehem Car works combine for a start on making car number 348 that ran on my modeled Putnam division, some J & L innovative designs packs of posters and license plates and then both some good and bad info I can pass along.
The good info I did not know about was that all the cast details that Fine Scale miniatures had are now being remade and available.
The bad news was that this show was the last for J & L innovative designs,they are retiring and as of yet no one has made them the needed offer to sell there line of the many great things that they offer.
If you have ever wanted something that they make like there great era posters or bill boards or kits , or details then now is the time to do such!
