Ships

Look closely at the top ship kit entry. See the smoke explosion? It's suppose to be an implosion of a decommissioned ship.

The Sinking of the Titanic. Yes, that is inside a 10 gallon fish tank filled with water dyed in blue coloring.

Golden Age of Air Travel Collection

Collection of various types of Private Civilian aircrafts

This diorama reminds me so much the scene straight out of Band of Brothers except these were portrayed using the British Red Devils street fighting scene.during WW2. The details that went into it is phenomenal. I absolutely love this diorama!

There were tons of armor kits, autos, fantasy figures and Gundham as well. Too many to list that I wasn't able to take more due to the official start of model entires judging was getting underway.


Overall, I think this year was the better than last year's crowd. Although I did buy raffle tickets but didn't win anything which is a shock to me. Oh well, there's always next year.

March as one, Don't look back
Odin's sons... Attack!
Unleash hell! Do not repent! Warfare grants us no lament
Let your weapons slash and tear This is no place for fear
Hold the lines! Move as one! In unity our victory's won
Our shields will form a mighty wall
United we shall never fall
