So Cal NNL 2011
Event Report

This year’s So Cal NNL was a big step forward for the event, which is run by our member Chris Hale. The attendance was great this year, with good-sized crowds throughout the day. Several race car modelers brought their work to show off, as seen in this brief review of the show.



Dale King showed some of his 1/12 Porsches, including a 935 and several 962s




It was nice to see Lindley Ruddick, Charles Fox, Henry Gonzales, and Dale King.
George Schaeffer also made it to the show, all the way from Florida.


Paul Cadwell showed his Audi and Martini Alfa, along with these impressive GP Bikes:



Chris Hale displayed his GT40 and amazing Lotus 56B Offenhauser Indy Car



Chris won the Theme award with this unique model.


Russ Bundy displayed several Indy Car models. This is the 1967 Indy 500 winning Coyote-Ford.



Perhaps the most impressive model at the show was this Pocher Alfa Romeo built by Gary Arnette.

You may have seen Dale’s comments about putting this model together, particularly the decals.

Apparently, after struggling with this kit, he’s ready for a nice easy project.
