Cincinnati Scale Modelers Contest and Swap Meet Part One

Yesterday Rick and I made the four hour drive down to Cincinnati to attend the annual Cincinnati Scale Modelers Contest and Swap Meet. It is always a good time and again it did not disappoint. The vendor area had some good buys and I bought a few too many kits. Here are some of the highlights from the contest area.

I really liked the paint job on this out of the box Airfix MiG-15.

A really striking scheme on the 1/48 Hawk.

A great job on the Matchbox T-2 Buckeye.

A cute little Airfix 1/72 Bulldog.

And a 1/48 Bulldog.

A neat dogfight double.

David Knights's AVG Hawk 81.

A nice Spitfire XIX.

A big 1/32 Hawker Hunter.

A 1/72 scale resin Bulldozer.

A very neat, and large, B-52 diorama.

I don't know what this is supposed to be, but it is cool.

Scott King was finishing his Valom BT-1 as the show started. Even so, he managed a second in 1/72 props.

Congratulations to David for his third place in 1/72 props. Even if he was lapped by a kit that was unfinished at the start of the show.

Look for Part Two later in the week.
