2016 Austin Scale Model Show

After another short year (time keeps accelerating), the Austin Scale Model Show for 2016 was held at the Norris Conference Center in Austin, Texas. I spent a pleasant afternoon with master modelers David Carlton and James Duffy as we caught up with each other. David won the Best Spacecraft trophy at the IPMS/USA Nats and James had a fantastic flight of his 1/12 scale Little Joe at the World Spacemodeling Championships in Ukraine. I went to Yellowstone National Park. But enough about us: the models were why we were there. David's V-2 engine won Best Spacecraft. I'm shocked that James's Little Joe didn't place. And I, of course, entered nothing as I haven't finished a model in a decade. But I had fun anyway. Here are the photos in the order I took them.
