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 May 5, 2013

In attendance tonight: Tony, Dave, Randy, Rob, Craig , Steve R, Steve F, Dennis, Joe

Welcome to Craig tonight, his first visit. Lots of discussion and he brought some cool things to look at and talk about!


Unfortunately everyone did not get their plans done in time for this meeting, so we postponed judging for a month. See you June 2!!!!!!!! GET BUILDING !!! :)

We did have a few examples, kudos to Tracy, Rodney joe, and Gary for his almost completed but then gravity and a paint mishap happened, fixable Gary..


Fokker DR1 Another large example - formidable!
Steve F

His own versions of Eggplane from real life – GB Racer and X85 Goblin. Goblin was a great design, except they didn’t consider how to land it!


Craig joined us for the first time. He brought in a bunch of kits and a WIP Diorama, plus his Vallejo paint set. I wish I had one of them!


Taking a page from Steve F theme kits, Joe brought in two Corsairs built years ago to depict VMF-214 Blacksheep with Pappy Boyington, and the Blacksheep next tour in early 1945 aboard the carrier USS Franklin. New is an F4F-4 wildcat just built to represent VMF 214 initial tours, before the Blacksheep “stole” their number. Tours started in Feb 1943 and ended in Aug 1943. The Wildcat version of VMF-214 were actually called the Swashbucklers. But that changed, didn’t it.

Another shot of the Friul metal tracks for the Jagdpather. These are weathered using AK Burnishing Fluid. One was done as links and then assembled, the other track was assembled and the burnished. Can you tell where the thin CA glue ran on the pre-assembled track? Moral of the story? Burnish individual links, THEN assemble.

Randy brought in the Academy F-18A hornet with Canadian marking. He wouldn’t sell it.

 Rob Brought in his Mayflower kit for the ship guys to see.

Just an observation, Gary is the only regular car guy in the group. He cant build fast enough to have something to show every week. We need some new car guys to show us their stuff, and perhaps Gary wont be so lonely :)

See you next month folks.
