Wright Con 2015 IPMS Regional contest

This past Saturday I attend Wright Con 2015 the region 4 regional contest.  The contest was nice. On the plus side I got to go to the USAF Museum again.   My entry was a F-104 that I had fought with for two years.  Most of the time the model sat on the shelf of doom.  During the initial build I had accidentally knock off a tip tank fin.  I couldn't find it.  About a month ago while looking at a box with another model.  There was the fin.   It was glued it on. The rest of the build continued.   But I was still boomed.  In my rush to finish I neglected to attach the tail hook.  That is pretty well the kiss of death at a contest.

Here are the photos I took.   I wanted to take more but the isles happened to be to small. These made it difficult to take more pictures.  I may just start another blog with contest pictures.
