Dont forget that our next meeting is on this Sunday so bring along anything you want to build or show. We will also be experimenting with the format a little to create a more relaxed feel to the meetings.
Rene De Konig will be awarded his winning trophy for his entry to the past event of Build A Bitch. Later in the meeting Rene will also take us through a demo on ‘How to Decant Spray Packs’ for airbrushing.
We will also be seeking member nominations for the ‘Gunna-Build’ in an effort to get members to build that kit that has been sitting in the stash as one of those must builds – but never got around to it!
And as a separate segment we will present an open forum on ‘Club Builds vs Personal Builds’
It will be another fun day so look forward to seeing you all there.
This is a meeting reminder for Sunday the 11th and is a rescheduled meeting given that last Sunday was Fathers Day, and would have been a clash of loyalties. Some people might say that family come first, but we know the truth because just quietly we all know plastic rules! Just in case you picked up a model for Fathers Day please bring it along or at the very least bring yourself to join in the fun with our show and tell and whats new segments.
See you all there!
Here are some images of member progress, completed builds and new kits, as well as images of our completed ‘Build A Bitch’ entries.
General images of what our members have been up to:
Build A Bitch using poor quality kits to give its builder an opportunity to make it shine – this years placings are:
1st – Rene De Konig – IL-10
2nd – Tony M – Fokker – DXX1
3rd – Martin Reid – Horten 229
The scoring was based on IPMS out of the box rules but with percentage applied for the degree of difficulty, and proved to be a fun event and will definitely be run again next year.
Our next meeting will be held on Sunday 7th August which will include kit reviews, whats new and coming events plus a lot of general talk about where we are at with current projects. Last meeting saw the allocation of our Build a Bitch 1/72 scale aircraft kits, that we kindly donated by Mark from Sprue Finders. These kits will be returned back to the club at this meeting to be scrutinised and the winner being awarded the perpetual trophy.
More importantly this meeting will be our AGM with members taking an active role in our clubs future. We look forward to seeing you all there and to take part in the activities that all of this entails.
See you all there!
