I admit I have a 12 year old's sense of humor. Look, all I can see in this thread are the words "model society" and "sexpositions." :)

In all seriousness, back to the regularly scheduled programming... hope the expo is in fact good and productive!

I went for the first time last year, It was interesting seeing some of the items there.
I was more intrigued by the small scale V8 motors that ran on RC-Car style gas.

They even had a scale model of a Harley motor that actually even had that recognizable Harley sound.

Besides the items being shown they also had a small vendor's area that had mainly small metalworking hand tools for sale. I picked up some 1/4" shank carbide burr's for like $2.50 each, They turned out to be great burr's! If I end-up going this time I'm going to grab about a dozen more.
