About the club

We are a group of people who enjoy the hobby of plastic model building. Our members interests range from Aircraft, Automobiles, Ships, Figures, Armour, to Sci Fi. We have all skill levels from beginners to some pretty talented modellers, but we mainly meet to share our work, ideas, tips and techniques, and talk about modelling in general.

December Meeting Summary

The last meeting of the year is usually our Election of officers.
This year the President, Secretary and Treasurer volunteered to stay on and the Vice President  wanted to step down.

Acting on a motion from the floor, the quorum voted unanimously to retain the the willing incumbents, however we deferred the election of the Vice President until January in the hopes we would get some members willing to accept the nomination.

We have a few more kits on the table this month to look at.

Steve F brought in a collection of 1936 era fighters with a "What-If" scenario of what would have been the stage for WWII starting in 1936 in terms of Fighter Aircraft, instead of Spitfires, Hurricanes and ME-109s. I believe the closest one is a Hawker Fury (precursor to the Hurricane) in 48th and 72 scale examples. While the others are the Heinkel He 51, Arado 68, and top right I think is Morane-Saulnier M.S. 225.

Chris brought in two completed works, part of his 9 for the year. A Leopard 1, and his first crack at WWII Russian, an IS-2.

Tony brought in two in-progress aircraft. A 727 airliner and a Russian Bear.

And Lastly, I brought in my completed DeHaviland Mosquito - RCAF 418 Sqn example, the Revell kit. Practice for the Tamiya kit I have.

So that brings 2013 to a close, see you in 2014!

In our January meeting we will be discussing the possibility of a model show for Oct 2014. Chances are very good that we will be able to announce that in the next few weeks, to give you lots of time to start a build or two just for the show!

Stay tuned!!

Happy New Year!!!
