You guys have a great time, this year I cannot make it. I would love to be a fly as you discuss the Gato details. Maybe someone will record it for me?
I will shoot for next year to attend. As a side note, for the past 12 months I noticed there was a 1/72 Revell Gato collecting dust at a local hobby shop, priced at $89 - I went this weekend to show my wife what I would like for Christmas (of course her reaction was "you need another Gato why?") and it was gone! AArrrggghhhh! So, if anyone has one collecting dust and would like to part with it let me know. Actually let Tina (my wife know) ibubwebwhat at yahoo dot com

Peace,
Tom

Tom,

Definitely plan on coming down next year. We'd love to have you join us. I was talking to Don Baker recently and he has a spare Gato he wants to move. I'll see if I can steer him your way. You can never have too many Gatos.
Warm regards,

Paul Crozier
