Letter from an attendant to the High Plains Con XXII

The High Plains Modelers Club received this message from Randy P., whom lives in Texas and happened to be in Colorado the day of the High Plains Con XXII. He stopped by, said hello to many modelers, got to look at some of the already entered models and then departed back home.

With his authorization his email is being reproduced here



Greetings All,

It's been a while since I attended your contest, and wanted to say hello. I really enjoyed my visit, and was so glad I could attend the contest. Too bad I didn't have more time to stay and see the great models still coming in. I did eventually see the photos posted, and there were some cool ones added after I left. 


Some of you might remember I found a bust at one of the vendors tables. I finally got around to painting it, and wanted to share a photo with you all. The bust is of actor Sam Elliot, and is meant to be his character General John Buford from the movie "Gettysburg". I was thrilled to find this unique piece, and happy at how it turned out.


It was a pleasure meeting you all, and I'm absolutely planning to attend the Nationals there in 2013. It will be great to see you all there. Take care and best wishes.



Randy P. 


Thanks Randy for your message and we are glad to know you had a good time.
