The Kshatriya got 1st Runner Up in the e2046 contest, so I'm cool with that. More importantly, I got TWO Golds at the 50th IPMS USA Nationals. One for my FSS dio and one for my Pinky Death Saurer, which y'all will see someday whenever the Zoids anthology is released. Considering I only took four models, getting two Golds is pretty nice (especially when one considers that this was an international show with almost 3000(!!!) entries).
I've got one more show in Baltimore in November and then I'm retiring from competition-- I figure I don't really have anything to prove anymore. I might enter something now and then, but my days of building specifically for competition will come to an end. Racking up awards was important early in my pro modeling career, but enough people know who I am now, I don't really need the advertising that winning awards brings.
After November, I can go back to modeling for fun again. lol
