The 2014 Austin Scale Modelers’ Society contest/show/etc* is tomorrow, and this is the first time in a few years, it feels like, when the evening before is not going to be a rush job to finish up a build in time to hit the contest tables.
To be honest, I’m a bit worried about this year’s show. Last year was markedly subdued, and this year it will be competing against not only the first weekend of the Austin City Limits Festival, but a Longhorns home game and Austin Comic Con. But, you know, fingers crossed there’ll be good turnout.
As with every year, I’m planning to bring a medley of builds. I learned a while back that you never really know what will and won’t do well with the judges. I mean, last year I had two 109s…a Revell G-6 and a Hasegawa G-4. In my opinion the G-4 was the better build, with the better paintwork, etc. But the G-6 won 1st in the category while the G-4 got a big fat goose egg.
So what’s coming with me tomorrow?
