I had always wanted to attend the RPM Collinsville Meet but for one reason or another I just seem to miss out. Well after viewing Dean's photos and his comment about the event, I am going next year!

Dean attended the show on Friday. The show was a two day show, Friday and Saturday. Dean notes that both days had great clinics and a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere. There was a room set up with tables for displaying models and dioramas. Dean took all these great photos with his pocket camera. Two additional rooms were set aside for vendors. Rapido, Atlas and Funero and Camaralengo attended to mention a few. Mike Rose, Mike Conafalone, Scotty Mason and many other talented modellers were present to meet and answer questions. The two day meet was held in the Community Centre which is attached to the Collinsville Library.
