Yeah the professional models sort of make you dream back when you were building castles and stuff (at least castles were my fav as a kid) and how I tried for epic stuff and it apparantly was very lame by comparison, haha.
The coverage was pretty last-minute, after catching a TV commercial that the show was coming to Pittsburgh. I had no idea that it even existed till then, so it was cool to get to do the show.
Plus I have to admit, I took an unguided tour of the DL Convention Center while I was there. I've wanted to check it out since it was built. I was in awe at how big it was. They were setting up a Mine Safety show in the other half... Rumor keeps saying it's on the short lists of potential Celebration destination possibilities... I dunno. It's definitely got the room, it just needs the hotel space (which is growing/expanding).
I'd have loved to see the Creation Nation finished project as well. I was bummed I couldn't make it back down on Sunday just to snap a few photos of what it finally looked like.
By the end of Friday's first show though, when I was heading out, I went upstairs and saw a good bit of certain areas like Florida, Pittsburgh (obviously), and other parts had been filled in pretty quick. It's a massive map though, so it surely would've taken all weekend to fill it up.
