Well, as usual, you guys have taken a simple (but serious) item and gone to the moon with it.
The statement as I got it Thursday night was that the alleged culprit had simply dabbed two small blobs of Super glue on the boots or ground of a figure diorama.
He did not pick up the model, handle it in any way or draw undue attention to himself in any way. I had also been told by other members of the entrant's home group that he had not used any super glue in the building of this dio.
Similar things have happened at previous model shows/conventions and I would expect they will happen again in the future. To me it does not reflect poorly on the show staff as apparently they did catch or at least observe this occurrence.
Everyone should understand that when they lift their masterpiece off the shelf at home and transport it to anyplace else, especially half way across the country, they subject it to a whole bunch of unknown hazards. I have seen some absolute catastrophes over the years and for the most part everyone managed to survive.
I guess the worst might have been one of our local builders being hurried to vacate the display area so the staff could set up for something else. He had 40+ models carefully packed when the swinging doors hit the side of the dolly they were on. All went sprawling/splattering across the entryway. Last I heard he was still piecing some of them back together. The staff seemed to have a typical "Oh well" attitude about it.
