It was another beautiful October day at the Norris Conference Center in Austin, TX, for the 2015 Austin Scale Model Show. As usual, I met up with David Carlton for lunch and a perusal of the contest room. Unfortunately, my back was acting up again so I didn't stay as long as I would have liked. I also didn't photograph every model in the show, but I think I got most of them. I was having to dodge the judges as well as dealing with back spasms. It was a nice surprise running into James Duffy of Space Monkey Models at the show. David's scratchbuilt 1/48th scale Vanguard first stage engine won First place in Real Space and also won the show's overall theme award: "Faster than Fast."
