Mecoa has their booth full of all kinds of great RC products from a 1/8th scale gasoline powered 4 wheel drive car to engines of all sizes and types.

Carl Goldberg Products has their line of ARF and kit airplanes on display. They also have a terrific line of RC accessories to make life easier when fitting out a new or old model.

RCSkydiving.com is here too with their fun and unique line of RC skydivers and parasailers.

Aero Electric buys and sells vintage engines and components to help make sure these fine little machines survive well in to the future.

Jomar Products is next up with a huge stock of ZAP adhesives as well as several kits and accessories.

And here we have the ZAP booth itself. ZAP offers the most diverse line of specialty CA adhesives I have found to date. Having used almost every one of them, they are all extremely high quality.

Robart has their booth layed out very nicely making it easy to up close and personal with all of their products. Their staff can also answer any questions you might have or help you choose the right setup for your favorite model.

EMS has a huge selection of all things electronic. Servo extentions, switches, servos, tools and a ton of accessories.

Astro Flight is here with their line of high performance electic motors, ESC's and chargers.

Merlin Glow Plugs has been busy helping modelers determine the best glow plug for their engine and running conditions. These are great running plugs that last a long time.

Down the way a bit we find Cermark with a great line up of all things RC. Lots of parts and accessories have been bought here this year and they have a lot of great looking models too.

Nick Ziroli Plans is here too highlighting not only their well known designs, but also Nick's latest sport jet, the Turbinator.

Who were the builders of the military helicopter gunships, and who was the bulider for USS Boston Battleship ?

My son is very interested in those models.

I was amazed at what a wonderful job John did moderating the Toledo show right up until the last day. Having attended the show for some 45 years, and not the last three years, brought back fond memories. John I congratulated you for your efforts. Now I saw the whole show without being there......... thru the eyes of John and his camera. I can hardly wait to see the RCU videos. Many thanks again, John...................it was absolutely marvelous! Jerry Smith

Hayes Products is also here again with the line of high quality engine mounts and fuel tanks.

Model Aero has several cool looking foamy prop jets that look like they will be a whole lot of fun to fly.

Apogee is here as well with their Li-Po battery line.

Dawg House RC is here with a couple of really nice looking large scale Yaks plus all the goodies to make them flight ready.

Aspect Aviation has several unique sport models for someone looking for a new model that doesn't look like everything else at the field. They also carry tools, including Permagrit shapers, as well as adhesives and accessories.

Four Pi is here with a bunch of neat looking models, helicopters and general RC goodies.

The AMA booth has been busy all weekend helping current member and new modelers interested in the hobby.

B&D Enterprises is also back with their time proven line of made in the USA pneumatic and mechanical retracts.

Wing Manufacturing is continuing to expand their product line with not only their well known short kits, but also accessories and parts to help you turn your project into a unique model you will be proud to show off and fly at the field.

See Temp is here as well with a bunch of neat items to make your building experience easier with more consistent results.

Stevens AeroModel is here too with what could be argued are some of the best build it yourself kits anywhere. All of these kits are engineered and laser cut to build with the absolute minimum fitting required. It is not uncommon to completely assemble a wing panel without applying a single drop of glue!

I was at the Toledo show for Scale RC Modeler many years ago when the river that passes by the old Hockey Rink where the show used to be held caught fire and we had to move our cars, yep, that's right the river caught fire. Norm

Those are our kits http://www.indyhelis.com , of our 1/7 scale ah64-a helicopter.. One was built by Wayne Mason of ky that I know of.


but after seeing all the photos posted so far in this thread what disappoints me the most is how crappy and pathetic some of the big time companys display their products. This is Toledo, the one place where everyone can come see your product first hand and get information and flyers and to ask questions... Some of these booths were just complete unprofessional and i think the worst that i have seen so far in the pics posted was the Wildcat booth... just awful. The Align booth wasnt much better either and these are big companys... is it just being cheapskates or lazieness?
