Every year, the San Diego Model Car Club, and the Las Vegas Model Car Club have a contest. This year, the theme is movie and TV cars. There are some memorable vehicles out there, and there were some interesting choices this year. 

Each club will collectively judge the other club's entries. That will happen at the next meeting for each club. Winners will be announced here and in the newsletters.

A Very Comprehensive Kit Catalog

Wondering about some of the kits in you stash? Tim Shipley found a site with an extremely comprehensive listing of all types of plastic model kits. It will also help you manage your inventory. Just poking around, I found some interesting stuff I never knew existed. So, even if you don't have some mystery kit, it's a fun place to visit. 

The site is ScaleMates, and can be found at https://www.scalemates.com/kits/
