Same here. Found a Merit I didn't know about.
I PM'd Brian and emailed the WF staff to see if I can some pick mine up. Fingers crossed...

One day I was walking and I found this big log. Then I rolled the log over and underneath was a tiny little stick. And I was like, "That log had a child!"

Yes, but it's only supported by the new Scratch-N-Sniff iPads. The downloadable smell app can be glitchy at times because it is only a beta release. Wait for the update patch release.

They made a comment during the awards ceremony that if your yellow sheet had a sticker on it, you were awarded a Merit and you were supposed to collect it from the contest room staff when you picked up your model after the show.
Surrounded by unbuilt models. What the heck do I work on next??

I got two merits. Only one of my yellow sheets had a sticker on it.

How do you make a site like that? That's awesome. Always love your coverage. Thanks for taking two shots of my model! :D

May I borrow them (the two of my ship) and credit you if I share them elseware?
Sure, feel free to use the pics from the show as you wish.

As for the site. I Set up an automated batch process to resize all the images on the SD card to a reasonable size. Then I use a program called Web It! to scan the folder I dumped all the images into. And auto create the tables and thumbnails. Then I upload it to my web server.

I won a silver last year and didn't know about it until after the list was posted on the site. I didn't come back that Sunday for the awards and had given that model away Saturday night. I contacted them and they mailed me my silver. Now I have a silver award for a model I gave away!
