    Show of Shows

    Post by Zeked on Sun Jan 22, 2017 10:32 pm

    If you ever wanted to see how large the Show of Shows is look at this floor plan.  Essentially each white dot is an 8 foot
    table full of military for sale.  In my opinion it is worth the trip; 12 hour drive for us but worth every minute on the road.
    Hope to see you there!

    If you haven't been, your mind will be blown by the width and breadth of this show. The stuff you'll see is absolutely amazing, rare, common and everything in between. Yes there is OEF/OIF stuff as well, as long as you beat Clete there Wink

    Maybe it was 2 years ago there was a table just maybe 15-20 tables from the concession stands at the rear of the hall. I went by and it had TONS of OEF/OIF stuff and I was like "Oh I'll remember to come back for x item"...hours later I came back and the table was practically picked clean. I was a sad panda Sad

    I was actually really disappointed by this show.... yeah, it's *big*, but at least 75% of the show is Nazi stuff and the little bit of modern items were way over priced.

    Agreed its very much a Nazi show case. I found quite a good bit of modern there that was affordable as well.

    RedLegGI - Our table last year was B-21 so I assume it will be the same this year (requested the same table for this year).

    You are correct, it is mostly WWII German and US but I have found some killer modern items there as well. But I collect more than modern items so it broadens my appeal. Plus, for me, it is cool to see things like USMC General Smedley Butler's uniform, perhaps a WWII German Marshall's baton, top notch painted A2 flight jacket and other cool historical items. Thanks!
