Hi Guys,

Taking longer to get these posts up than I hoped.  Have the world's slowest internet connection at my hotel in Vegas.

Here are some more pics of scale models at the Minexpo:

Direct from MINEXPO

Hello all,

 Here is a quick first day report from Minexpo in Las Vegas!

Lots of collectors here - already run into David, Jack, Michael, Urs, Thomas, Brian, Kevin, Ted and many more.  Also ran into Mr. and Mrs. Conrad just around the Liebherr booth - wonder what was going on there?

P&H (Joy Global) are showing off two new N-Scale XPC Shovels made by TWH - you can see them below along with some other models under glass.  This entire run went to the company - none for collectors!  There is a clean one and a weathered version.  I got to see these fantastic little models up close months ago in TWH's offices but was sworn to secrecy.

Met with some great companies and interesting people already - can't wait until tomorrow - another whole day of walking under equipment! Oh - BTW - it is almost 100 degrees here - outside work is tough!

I know there are lots of photos already posted in our forum pages - but here is what I found interesting at the show today.   More photos will be posted tomorrow.

Some scale models I found today....
