Hi Guys!

It was my fortune yesterday, to attend the annual Ajax model show.  Ajax is about an hour east of Toronto.  There were a ton of really nice builds on display in the contest portion of the show.  The real fun however, was at the vendors tables. Here's a look at what I picked up boys!  If any of you have some insight or info on any of these, I'd be much obliged!!

1991 issue. $8.00  (Canadian money)



1995 issue. $8.00



1995 issue.  $15.00



1994 issue  $20.00



To my delight,  when I got home and opened the Dr. McCoy...I found the cut out box cover and complete Mr. Spock figure kit as well!!

The cherry for me, 1975 issue.  $20.00  (Not sure if this was the first release??)



Lastly, a fairly recent Moebius issue.  $15.00


Decent booty for $86.00.


  As much as I enjoyed the shopping, the true highlight of the show for me was getting to meet Norm (aka Schweinhund) in person!!  Norm and I have been "internet pals" for about a year now, but up until yeaterday had never met "for real".  It was a great pleasure to meet, chat and tour the show with Norm!!  He is a class act!!  He was packing some very nice phtography gear and took a whole bunch of pictures.  I'm sure once he has them sorted and loaded, he will share them with all here.

Thanks for looking Guys!

Arrgh a fine haul of booty matey! Should all be fun to build. There are some nice backlighting panels for that bridge kit out there.
Outerspace Outfitters is the company doing these.

I built that Invisible Man kit awhile back and put a lot of details into it. I think it turned out pretty good.

Here is a pic of it.
If It's a model kit, I like it already.

Well played, Boyd ;o)

Fumblethumbs, I wish I'd known about that. Ajax is only 3 hours from here.

Well, there's always next year.

By the way Jeff,   Nice round up!     Some pretty cool Kits you've got yourself!

Glad to have met you in the flesh!

Next year, we will be 3 ?  By the sound of it!   Even better!
