NNL-East, April 20th, Wayne NJ

Postby MMFAAFireModel on Tue Mar 19, 2013 5:02 pm

The 27th Annual NNL-East is a mere month away.

The largest gathering of model builders, model display, and cottage industry expo on the east coast returns to the Wayne (NJ) PAL on Saturday, April 20. If you are going to arrive on Friday evening for NNL-Eats, I'll look forward to seeing you there,too. Hopefully the new restaurant will be open in time. If not, the Tri State Scale Model Car Club will have an alternate plan.

If you're not familiar with what NNL-East is, or are interested in finding out more about it, or in attending, everything you need to know is at http://nnleast.com/ It's worth the trip if you are quite a distance away.

Looking forward to seeing you either Friday evening or at 9AM Saturday morning.

Mooney's buying lunch now that he's secured the Flamingo Bay EMS contract.

I put in for vacation to be there. Who else is attending?

Hi Guys,
With my relocation to Florida, I will not be able to attend - UNLESS ,Mooney is buying lunch??? :D Know that I will be there in spirit. Perhaps for those of us unable to attend, we could have a "virtual show"? Just a thought. I know I have been working on several projects...

Well, the 27th Annual NNL East is in the bag and I'd like to thank the members here at the Scale Firehouse for making the trip to the Wayne NJ to spend the day and your money.
While attendance seemed a bit off, a good time was still had by those in attendance. The Municipal/Emergency category participation was somewhat light this year, but the models displayed were top notch.Pictures after I get homer and dump my camera card, I didn't pack the USB adapter.

Thanks to:
Charlie (chariotsoffire): about 6 models in the M/E, Heavy Commercial and Resin Theme categories
Tom (tpsny): a handful of vintage police cars
Zoli (zoomzoomzee): a handful of police cars in scales from 1:43 to 1:18. The 2 in 1:18 had full light & sound packages
Bob (bigdogb25): 1 complete and 2 builds in-progress
Dave (daveski25): a pumper and tanker
Steve (SteveG): a police car

and John (jakes357) a first timer to NNL-East, didn't have anything to display this time, but enjoyed himself so much he'll be back again.

Apologies to anyone I left off the list above if you were there. I didn't connect your name with a SFH user ID. Introduce yourself next year. I'm one of the guys in the lime green staff shirts that's usually hanging around the municipal/emergency table.

Next year's date is Saturday, April 26, 2014, so mark your calendars and start working on something.

I don't have a photo hosting account, so instead of posting the pictures I took, here's a link to lots of albums that show all the models there.

Next years date is April 26, 2014. A week later because Easter falls on the usual weekend.

Guys,
Thank you forthe friendly reception at the NNL EAST. It was great to meet so many cool people. You know it's gotta be good when the wife says she had a good time. On the way back to Ft Wayne she mentioned that she thought she might start building again.... She is a pretty good modeler.
Well all was cool when I got home till I went to the cave and found that about 2 inches of water had been on the basement floor :evil: The good news was most stuff was in plastic containers. I did lose some magazines that I had been sorting thru, and a couple storage boxes sucked up some water,so we're drying out some kit boxes. We are on the way to getting the mess cleaned up.
Anyway, s--t happens and you move on.
The other good news is I'm stoked to finish up some apparatus I'm working on.Thanks again guys!
And ED is right "I'll be back"
Regards,
John and Linda
