Vendor room open. Smaller than previous Phoenix nats, but deals to be had.

Looks like you’re having a great time. 
Happy hunting on vendor tables, and remember to post more pics of the 1/72 builds :)

It certainly is quiet before the rush, that 109 looks very much like Mr Numerick's  😀

Wow, the isles are even wider than the 2010 edition. You could have raced cars with those isles. That's like a 6 lane interstate. The crowd size is about the same. Just makes me sad to look at. Maybe they are in the model room? At seminars?

Airfix is there, I hear. Hope you are talking their ear off with kit requests.

Good crowd. Vendors less than 2004 and 2010. Great models.
