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 Sept 2, 2014

The September meeting of IPMS St. John’s was held on September 2, 2014.

In attendance that night was a large crowd… Mike, Joe, Dave, Rob, John (all the way from Carbonear tonight!), Rodney, Tracie, Steve R, Chris and new member Randy!

Mike - ME-109G
Mike has been working on this for a while and it is one of his best efforts to date. Lots of weathering! Come see it at the Show on Nov 9!

 Joe - Revell 48 Scale Hawker Typhoon, Airfix 72 scale meteor, Hasegawa 72 Scale B-17F (Hells Angels)
While I finish my LAV III (It’s been on the bench since January – almost done though) I looked at a few things on the bench to finish, just for a change of pace. That was the Meteor and the Typhoon. However, I got the B-17 from Dave at the Swap Table on Club Day. ALWAYS a fan of the Fort. I hadn’t built one since I was a kid. And I wanted to try out some aircraft weathering techniques.

Rodney – Maine Peapod
Rodney, you have the patience of a saint. To put that together plank by plank is on par with building a photo etch model. I am envious of your patience. Check out and additional shot for even more progress on this one!

Tracie – Figures for the Figure competition!
Tracie has been trolling eBay for some artistic and interpretive examples for the figure competition. I embrace the subjects that Tracie brings to show us, it reminds us of the breadth of the modeling culture, and it is not all planes and tanks and cars and ships. Bravo Tracie!!

John - Saab Viggen 
John has been working on this for a while (how many years John? J ) This was his example of re-scribing a raised panel line model and he coincided this with a tool new to use for scribing.. the plexi-glass cutter. See our other post on Facebook and the website for more details..
