In 1977, we did the “Carnival Model Builders and Historical Society” show in Mt. Prospect, Illinois. It was suggested by a “carny” there that we should show our models at the “International Independent Showmans' Association” show in Gibsonton, Florida in February of 1978. We were overwhelmed at the amount of interest we received at the show. We have operated with a 24 to 30 month waiting list, that continues to the present time.
Since that show our life has never been the same.
