"There are those who believe that life here began out there, far across the universe, with tribes of humans who may have been the forefathers of the Egyptians, or the Toltecs, or the Mayans. Some believe that there may yet be brothers of man who even now fight to survive, somewhere beyond the heavens."

I just competed in my first ever model show which was put on by a local club.  I entered my Battlestar Galactica Reboot model which is my baby, Battlestar Pegasus, Mk1 viper (Apollo) and Mk2 viper (Starbuck) inflight, heavy weathered, and my Assault Raptor.  I swept the class (beginners sci-fi...fist competition, 1 year experience) Pegasus, Raptor, Apollo 1,2,3!!!

I wasn't there for the judging ( had to work) so my wife stayed and had to answer a lot of questions for me lol.  Folks and judges were amazed that I was just getting into building and when asked who taught me, I said ( at setup) or she would tell them during the competition that I learned from Youtube,  they were totally shocked. 

Come to find out, there were several other sci fi builders who were competeing in the "professional" class that were a little worried when they saw my builds and relieved this year anyway that I was in the "beginners".  Next time, I will be competing in the "big show" as the host club president put it. 

I was just happy to be representing the franchise in a small way.

Awesome stuff,bullet! I have been entering model contests since 1990,and I've won some awards;I have yet to win A first in category,But, i'll keep trying until I do!  Model Show/contests are A lot of fun,especially when you can find A bargain with one of the vendors,possibly A kit you've been hunting for high and low.

My local club,the IPMS/Lafayette scale modelers are having A show/contest this november;And,I'm planning on bringing my Battlestar Thermopylae.

Thanks CDR!  I was really nervous, but now I am looking forward to another show and already have some killer builds in process.  If they were impressed with what I showed this time, wait until they get a load of what I'm cooking up now hahahaha!  I will post up my winners and pics of my current project soon.

Well done Bullet.

I am not surprised that the Pro's were worried when seeing your work. You do amazing work, I love seeing your models. The final product shows the love and dedication you put into it and NO amount of experience can beat that.
