Sorry. As hubby is not well, my daughter needs to take more shifts at her job in order to help with things, so models and shows are taking a back seat right now in our life.

I ADMIRE and RESPECT this post. I wish you and your husband all the best in his recovery. Thumbs Up to your daughter for stepping up and helping out your family during this time. I will be doing the same after this show (models/shows) back seat during the summer. Cheers! T7

Thank you so much. He is seeking Acupuncture now and has had his hours cut back (doctors orders) at work. So far, I have been unsuccessful finding a job, but Aryelle is taking more hours at work.

Between his Arthritis and Eye issues, it is always something

It was okay, it probably would of been better if it was indoors somewhere, not outside. There was a UFly 737 sim there, but it wasn't that good because the guy telling you what to do always takes the yoke away from you.

There was also a lot of people inside AV World and in the tents. Inside AV world there wasn't much except new 1/200 Skymarks and new military stuff. Inside the tents there was a whole bunch of vendors but none of the models they sold I liked, except for the 1/200 Air Canada 727 and the 1/200 Air Canada DC-9. But the 727 was 170 while the DC-9 was 160, so I did not buy it because it was too expensive. Like maybe 100 would of been okay, to share the purchase between me and my dad.

There was also a Hogan 1/200 Swissair MD-11 with the golden stripes on it but it did not come with a box and it was around 90 dollars!!! So I only looked at that one. And I found out that the vendor selling the 727 and the DC-9 I really liked was Mr. T7! I was actually glad to meet him.

After that I went indoors to Threshold and there wasn't much, maybe because of the show. It was all the same stuff from last time except for some new t-shirts, and a whole bunch of new Skymarks. I wish they can get more Hogan or GJ200 and less Skymarks. But when I was about to step out of the door, a Gemini200 Air Canada L-1011-500 that I liked but of course, it came with a price tag of $109, which isn't much compared to 179.99 listed on GJ's website. I really wish I could buy it, but I would rather get that WestJet 737-800 by [email protected] than this.

So that's all I did, and did not buy anything, sadly. Also, sorry for making this a bit long.

I am sorry the weather did not cooperate. My daughter was the victim of a Hit and Run yesterday so sadly, I was thinking of making the trip down after saying I could not make it, but the damage to the car was too much to risk driving that far.

That used to be my Air Canada L1011 by the way

How do you sell it to a retailer?

It is an awesome model, no damage at all, you must have a good display case!

I got it from a reputable seller who posts on here and decided we no longer wanted to collect the model, so we traded it in

You're correct.

BTW, Lufthansa A340-600 is coming to YYZ. Go to Flightradar24 and type in lh494.

I was planning on attending the show but a couple of things came up. I had a medical test on Thursday that prevented me from driving for the day. I had intended to run some errands in the afternoon on Thursday but I could tell I could not drive. Then my work schedule changed on Friday. I was going to do my errands on Friday morning but my boss needed the morning off so we switched shifts. So all the errands I need to do had to be done on Saturday. So this prevented me from attending the show.

Many thanks for organizing the show! Yeah, it was crazy busy inside your store! Shoulder to shoulder with customers navigating around inside. Great sight to see!

Hey, it was a pleasure meeting up with you and your father. Always good to put a face to a DAC member. I apologize we couldn't talk in more detail, I had a busy day selling models. Overall, I sold about 26 1/200 diecast models and 15 1/400 models. Thumbs Up to the organizers of the show. Just wish I had more than 2 tables, I had enough models to span over 8 tables. So, I kept plenty of diecast models in the bins and inside the van. Oh well, we had a great time.

What was cool that the van I rented had an interesting license plate = 747!

A picture of my buddy who helped me out that day. As I did the sales; he kept a watchful eye on the 1/200 birds. Yes, people do steal models at shows.

Beats me? I heard rumors/heresay that the other aviation store next door was going to hold their own show later this summer. Probably confined to the 2-3 parking spaces (could be a little tight) that's allocated to their store front. Cheers! T7

A nice thing about AW is their lot is always virtually empty so it is easy to find a spot to park.

Yeah, I would have to agree with you on that...

But, they now have definitely turned things around with their reboot. Last saturday was just a start, there are plenty of more changes to come I heard so this was just the beginning. I couldn't venture into the store last saturday, due to the hordes of aviation customers inside. My buddy had to wait 40 minutes in line for the free burgers/sausages/hotdogs. The line went around the building, luckily he was also picking up my food order while I tended my tables. I did very well with my sales and treated him to supper and Captain America Civil War later that day. Cheers! T7

I gotta apologize to you. I was just having some fun with their 2 allocated parking spots. They would not be allowed to put 4 vendor tables within their 2 parking spots; they would receive an infraction/fine ticket from the city.

That they did! Funny thing was that I always posted "AV World" on the DAC from the day I joined the DAC a few years back. Now it's being officially used going forward. Gotta love it! T7

If AV World want to remain viable, it would be good for them to carry a much more diverse set of suppliers. 500 Gemini product boxes doesnt help if it is a vendor they do not carry and Threshold does. The updated web site is a huge improvement.

I don't think that's a good thing. Retailers cringe at that.

One thing that is useful is that both sites have web sites and allow comparison shopping on both stock and price. They each have a 10% discount program if not identified on the sites. Both stores sell a lot more than just diecast.

If you look at the diecast selection for 1/200. Threshold has a more diverse number of suppliers. Also, when I compared Gemini products, 7 of 10 were cheaper at Threshold, sometimes only by cents, other times by up to 10% . Bottom line, literally and figuratively is the check both stores out [on line and/or in person] and make your own decision as to where to buy.

Love both stores - both have great people to deal with. I think we are very fortunate to have 2 brick & mortar stores literally 100 feet from each other.
