Hobby - Adepticon-bound

 With the opening of our borders and the removal of MIQ (finally), it looks like I will make Adepticon this year. I am scheduled to fly out to the USA on Tuesday evening and the first five days of my trip will be at Adepticon 2022 at Schaumberg, Chicago.

Two years ago, in March 2020, I was due to fly out to Adepticon the night New Zealand closed its borders and went into its first lockdown. That year Adepticon was canceled, as it was last year. But now it's back and thankfully it looks like I'll be there.

This year it is hosting the first US Golden Daemon in about eight years and I can't wait to see the entries. It is also bigger than before spread over two hotels linked by a shuttle. The event has attracted great support from vendors.

So I'm looking forward to "nerding out" for five days. I have 8-9 hobby classes lined up and plenty of time to frequent the vendor hall. I'm looking forward to seeing the great army displays the tournaments attract.

Can't wait! Hi World - I'm back!

Hobby - Metal Casting of Models

 Great little film showing the early years of the hobby

Still using lead rather than that new fangled pewter
