Calgary Armour Model Show-08

Just back from a great show and a wonderful visit to Calgary over the weekend with a bunch of excellent modellers and salt of the earth type guys. Doug Jameson put a bunch of us up for the 2008 Alberta AFV Modeller Show. I was surrounded by some very talented and fun loving people, good time had by all. And the models were good too. I'll post more on that later.


From left to right
Tom Cockle, Gary Edmundson, Doug Jameson, Steve van Beveren, and Jim Carswell.


One with me


Even Ron Volstad showed up! As did a fellow Vancouverite, Greg Harker (not pictured here) for the after party at Doug's. Listening to these guys swapping stories into the late nite was quite entertaining!


Judging- should have got more shots like this!

Would have loved to have gone. Going to have to make a special trip up there one of these years. How many entries this year?

It would really be good to have you come up and take part - see if you can drag all those other Pacific Northwest modellers with you!

Here are the raw images of a flight I took to a AFV model show in Calgary on the weekend. Look em over and let me know your favorites.

Here are some raw shots showing the models at the show- pretty good turn out- around 90 models.
