Hi folks:

I was wandering the floor of the MVPA convention in Huntsville, Alabama a few hours ago - some great stuff (mostly softskins but some armour and ordance) is here already. There are close to 100 entries, with about 20 more (including a Scud launcher) expected either later tonight or tomorrow. Here are a few samples of what's on the floor:















The vending area is very large, with lots of neat things poking out from beneath table covers. As an aside, the whole show is in a nice, modern, air-conditioned venue, which is good because it's supposed to be hot as he*@ here for the next few days. The AMPS regional show will also be running here on Friday and Saturday, so it's definitely worth a trip for anybody interested in real and scale military vehicles.

See you in Huntsville!

Cheers,

Scott

I was already planning on getting over there Saturday. Now it's a certainty!

100 actual vehicles for you to photo and examine. 400 vendors (not the normal model show guys but the stuff the MVPA vendors carry is amazing.) Plus you get to hang out with the AMPS Atlanta guys who are hosting the regional show. Suh-weet.
