Question Toy Trucker show, Indy IN, 11-13 Aug 23 ?

A friend from other parts of the hobby asked me if our RC group was the ones attending this show?
https://www.toytrucker.com/



"Back by popular demand, rc truck and constuction models in action"

https://www.unitededgeue.com/auctions/5760/landing

So, do i need to slap some models back together pretty quick?

I would guess this has something to do with what is posted on the Sept 2023 Lebanon, IN 'Fifties Fest' site?

So there is the rc event back in the ayrport Wyndham hotels Hall of Champions.





Drive to back of hotel, find the "Event & Meeting Center" or "Conference Center" enterences.
$10 for toy show entry
$40 for rc pit pass
Good for the whole weekend

Looks like the Toy Show part is Fri 12p-6p / sat 9a-4p / sun 9a-1p.

Rc can stay late and play longer, they just box us into 1/3 of that room

Between the hotels thick pile carpet, our tarp roads, and fake grass, any Lightweight / Small-tire vehicles will be getting pushed around by the roads. It also makes some pretty rough curbs.

Sorry jerry, I snagged & posted those pics before i'd talked to anybody from the group.

There was a Nylint there running & dumping, but it was still on some tiny batteries


Had a VW that was getting thrown around on the road a lot.

Glad it wasn't the Low V-Dub.

And had a Mercedes-Benz that 'Extremely' wasn't happy with road conditions. Plus i forgot the deans-jst adapter for the battery its supposed to run. Jamal didn't even get to drive a whole lap.

(I may have bought an Ambulance, and was thinking about going back for a PowerDigger when everybody folded up shops)

Ok, so most of a Pressman toys 'Small Fry Hospital' 1950-53 Cadillac ambulance followed me home... it looks about 1/16 or 1/18 scale
No axles, or rear doors.
(Possible donors: NewBright 1957 Chevy has whitewalls with Tri-bar caps that would look great under it with axle widening. Or Jada had a charger on Supremes/Cragars/TorqueThrusts)

Not sure on the nylint PowerDigger, it was on tracks with the later House style than my crane has, with the weird anti-glare angled windows. I think set up as facing shovel, was folded in box under their table

I believe the metal truck with train engine on the flat deck was built by "Goodison" on this board, not sure if there was a thread. I think i might have seen that truck cab at HobbyLobby as new production?

As i was leaving, another gentleman was setting up some trucks with more train equipment loads
