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.

Update from our friend Ray

Our friend and Past President Ray completed this Mountie figure for his friend earlier this year.
I had seen Ray do something a little bit similar to this before he moved away and I have to say that I think Ray has taken his work to an even higher level..
This is impressive!

Next Meeting.. April 1 -  Maybe it IS a joke?

A heavy storm is coming our way (again) Monday and it appears to be an extended event into Tuesday.

We MAY have to postpone a week.

Keep watching our Facebook and Website for updates, and I will send an email to the group when things become clear.

Hopefully there will be enough info Monday evening to make a Go/NoGgo call.

Fingers crossed!

Meeting Summary March 4 2014

In attendance tonight
Rodney, Tracie, Steve F, Tony, Mike, Gary

Ladies first..

Tracie brought in a few of her in-progress works. She is working on a 48 Scale B-25 Mitchell, and is doing a fine job on the interior. Lots of detail and great painting job. Also on the bench and in progress, a 1957 Ford Pickup… The wooden box floor is looking great. Lastly from Tracie, a scratch built Palm tree, made from natural material, a stick from the garden, and a painted feather, WOW.

Rodney, like his partner Tracie, is also doing a B-25 Mitchell, he is a bit further down the road with his and it is shaping up to be a great build. It is ready for paint, and if I remember correctly this one is going to be an aluminium

finish. Rodney also shared his 1/25 Dodge Dart which has been primed and ready for color coats.

Mike has worked on a few armour models lately but has returned to his first love, aircraft. He is working on a Hasegawa ME-109G and has his interior completed. Very nice detail mike, great painting job….

Tony brought in a Mobius Martian for a distraction, J

Gary wanted to get a quick build in and that sense of accomplishment that comes with it. This is his Lamboughini.

Last but certainly not least, Steve F brought in a pair of US Navy Pacific Fleet icons from WWII, USS Enterprise CV-6 and USS Iowa BB-61. Iowa was name ship of the Iowa class Battleships, the last class of that type to ever be built.

USS Enterprise CV-6 is an icon of WWII and was already the 5th ship of the US Navy with that name, followed by WSS Enterprise CVN-65, the first nuclear carrier (decommissioned 2013). It will be perpetuated by USS Enterprise CVN-80, a Ford class carrier to be launched in 2025 and in service on 2027.

That's it for this week
See you next Month!

Meeting Summary Feb 4, 2014

Three new faces tonight, a big welcome to Tracey, Rodney and Brad, along with stalwarts Steve R, Steve F and Chris.

Tonight we have a couple of progress pieces to see..

Chris is in the middle of his build of an Achzarit. It is an Israeli  Heavy Personnel Carrier based on the Russian T-55 chassis. It has been produced in Israel since 1988. Can’t wait to see it painted and weathered!

Steve F can always be depended on to bring something interesting and this meeting was no different. In addition to his collection of Russian WWII soft skin vehicles, he brought in his Spitfire Mk IX. This is an example of the Spit used by Flt. Lt. Dick Audet, the Canadian “ace in a day” - referring to his shooting down of 5 enemy aircraft on Dec 29, 1944. He flew with 411 Sqn RCAF. He was later killed in a raid on a locomotive that blew up as he passed over it at low level. The markings are of the aircraft he used to get his 5 kills (he added another 6 before being KIA), which he shared with Flt Lt JJ Boyle, who had 6 kills.

I picked up a LAV III Conversion for AFV Stryker, and an AFV Stryker, from fellow modeller who was thinning his stash. Lots of parts, lots of photo etch, lots of resin. Hopefully this will all turn into 35 scale LAV III from the Canadian effort in Afghanistan late 2007/early 2008.

Newcomer Brad proudly displayed his Caterpillar Engine for his 1/16 Kenworth W900 build. Looking forward to seeing the progress of that monster….

Next meeting - Mar 4, 2014…

See you there!
