Post Wonderfest

Post by Tesral » Mon Jun 04, 2018 11:40 pm

We pulled back in about 4 PM from the Village of Louis. I have yet to empty the camera. I took a few pictures not all of it Trek. We, my Wife included came home with a moderate amount of swag. Heck, until Sunday when she ran of to the Museum at Churchill Downs She was out spending me. I will have a full report when I can get some decent food and a few more hours of sleep in my own bed.

But we are back and fun was had.

The Ghostbusters arrived back in quarters in WV late yesterday evening. I have been informed that next year we are making it a 4 day excursion instead of two..........

Did you meet anyone there? Several of the old Mighty Ten-12 were there - Chief400 (Commodore Red here at AST), lakespeed, zysurge, mar10 and... some other name that escapes me right this second. Great guys, all!

Sadly I did not meet anyone. A lack of communication that I won't commit next year. My wife is already discussing an AST party.

Meanwhile the handful of pictures I did take. I'm not much of a photo bug. I'll see what I can to to pack the raw images and put them on my Google drive.

A 1/1 model of John Lester from starship modeler, very realistic.

I really liked the Lion guy. He was in the exhibit hall.

I was wowed by the crash landed star destroyer.

More pictures.

This large scale full interior runabout was a show stopper. I didn't read the tag but it looks 1/24 or so. Going on the shape of the bow I think it might have some Seaview in its blood.

The USS Potemkin is a 1/350 Connie. Still shots do not to the lights justice as it had the full spinner and all.

The shuttle - Shackleton - was scratchbuilt by Bill Krause. Well, the main fuselage was scratched. The nacelles are the 1/350th Sentinel set from Blap! Models - which Bill designed for his Sentinel and Repulse 1/350 scratchbuilds.

Potemkin is from Michael Deptula.

Both are great fellas to sit down and talk with.
