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.

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.
