Default The "F*ck, I'm not going to Nats" thread.

So, who else can't/isn't going to be at Nats? Me for one!

Bit of a long way for me chaps.

Anyhow- it's going to be full of Tamiya 1/32 Mustangs and decals with no stencils

I would like to go to the nats in the US one day- anyhow- think of the fun we can have here while "they" are gone....

Never miss the nationals, only three months to go.

Oh, sorry, you meant your quaint little homage to the REAL nationals? Nah, not going!

Only been to one US IPMS Nationals, and it was quite an experience. Would love to visit again...

A heads up on those decals....
Sprue Brothers plans on selling the 1/72 and 1/48 scale sets seperately sometime after the Nationals. I don't know if Afterburner will be selling them on his site as well, but check with SB after the Nats......

Not going, nor do I have a desire to, until they make it back to the NorthEast, so that means probably never.

Will aim for the next West Coast convention. Airfares to the US are high enough without adding a cross country fare too.
