As with most NCT shows the vender area was packed and had a lot of good deals on models. I had a chance to speak with Dick Montgomery and Sean Glaspell while there, two old friends of CASM . It was good to see old friends.
Now for the awards:
Matt did well in the armor division with a third place in the Open Top category for his universal carrier and pulled out a second place in the Allied Closed Top Tracked, Single Color division. These are hard categories to place in at any time and the quality and number of entries in these categories was very impressive. A well-deserved “great job” to Mr. Bond.
My son, Dakota, was entered into the Juniors pre-teen division with his Warhammer Dreadnaught and his Monogram 1/32 M3 Lee. The Dreadnought won first in his division with the M3 ranking third out of about fifteen entries. That alone was a job well done however he won further honors by winning Junior Best of Show with the Warhammer Dreadnought. I am very proud of the boy to be sure.
My B1 Centauro placed third in the Wheeled/Armored Car division. I also won first and second in the Fantasy Figure 54mm or Smaller division with my Red Blood Angels and Green Blood Angels Dreadnaughts. Rounding out the day the Jersey Devil won first place in the Fantasy Figure Larger than 54mm Category.
All in all it was a good day for CASM in Texas Saturday. I estimate that there were between 250-300 models on the table with solid quality in almost all categories. I would recommend to any member to take advantage of the show next year, well worth the trip. The pictures below are representative of the quality of the entries but do not represent the number of entries.
