Can't make Timonium this time around, but if the Craftsman Corner is going to be at Raleigh, will make all effort to get to that show.

Sounds like the FineScale show is defunct.

Wish I could be there but doubt I'll be able to make it.  Dang.  It falls on my birthday too.  I'm missing out on an opportunity to receive a cool birthday present from Jimmy D.   ;D
