Well it took me a while (blasted illness) but I have finally put together all the photos and a show report for the SCAHMS California Show which took place in April. There were some amazing figures, vignettes and dioramas on display so make sure to check out the full gallery as I couldn''t even get close to putting all the pics in the report.

If you have comments or questions please post them here.

Thanks!

Oke,...I'm totally stunned by all the great work. Especially the Russian-crafted figures and the P-38. Truly amazing and must have been quite an experience attending the show

Thanks for sharing Jim!

Ps. now you live in paris? When do you come over to the netherlands

Jim:

Holy cow! What a high calibre of talent! And I must say your presentation of the show was very nicely put together. Thanks for all the effort you put into identifying the individual pieces.

Great Job!

I'd love to think that the horse blankets/covers on the russian figures were decals, but I'm guessing they aren't...it absolutely blows my mind.


Thanks again Jim,

John

First off, THANK YOU for taking all those photos, and posting them, enjoyed seeing them all.
1. It was good to see the fellow members.... including Harrison..... LOL :-) :-) Now I know what the young fellow I chat with looks like.....
2. Loved the figure of Yogi Berra..... today is his 80th birthday, and he lives right down the road from me in Monclair, but alast, he forgot to send me the invatation to his BBQ. The older he gets, the more he looks like my step-father did......
:-) :-) :-)
3. What a wonderful surprise to see Dave Kennedy still going strong...... Back in our younger days we bent many an elbow down at the old Chester show.... (MFCA) Us old guys still have our favorite Dave Kennedy stories from those shows, and my van...... :-) :-) :-) :-)
4. Totally amazing work..... one of these days, I'll have to make that show.... probably after I retire, and hit the lottery.... :-) :-) :-)
5. Jim was from Turkey yesterday, France today..... where will he be from tomorrow??????

Once again Jim, thanks for taking the time to take the photos, and posting them.
