Better combine it with a F$%@ing gun show to attract people to that town. Use to go to that show, but it has been in decline over the past couple years. Steve's shop is great though and he is such a nice guy!

The last show (fall 2016) was packed, both with dealers and buyers.

My estimate: 300 - 350. Steve didn't have an exact figure after the show, so my number, as I say, is only a guess.

That show was really well attended. As was the Newark show in NJ.

I'm thinking of going, never been to a show before. Can I look forward to a decent collection of rare planes? Or is it just going to be a flea market?

I've been into Steves shop and talked with him. He was saying he's more interested in the memorabilia than the models.

If you haven't been, I would suggest going to check it out and spend a couple of hours if not more. Stop by Steve's shop and dig around as it is always a treasure hunt and he has some sought after and sold out planes tucked away! Ask to use the restroom and look around in the back room as this is where the true treasures are!
