I probably wouldn't have gone, even if I had known about it. It's nice to know that there are events so close to home, though. :classic:

Those models look truly fantastic and very well displayed! Well done! :thumbup:

Do you have detail pictures of all the other models? Not only at-at, tie def and jedi starfighter?

You're UCS scale models are awesome and I'd love to have a closer look on all.

I couldn't make it over the weekend due to work, but it would have been nice if it had lasted longer than just the 2 days...

Totally agree with Big Cam.  :thumbup:  :cry_happy:

Especially the AT-AT, Imperial Shuttle, and the Trade Federation AAT look so sweet.
Cant wait for the official USC Imperial Shuttle after seeing yours again.

Do you have more pics of your B-Wing ?

Besides, could you do a review of the AAT please ? (if it is strong enough, etc)
I've always been interested in this AAT, but it's been a while I'm wondering if it is worth or not to reproduce it.

Yeah the AAT is very strong i wouldn't drop it though, you could say it's built like a tank :laugh: the only weak point is the gun barrel it knocks off too easily but will sit theer all day if just displaying, i stuck wheels under mine.

i think the only pictures of the b-wing are in the moc thread i will have to take some more.

The starwars section was one of the best there, but to many darn children saying 'mummy can i have one' ment it was hard to see all the awsome detail in the mocs. These pictures have been very use full as mine turned out rubbish.

Thanks, CB
