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!
Today was meeting day and became a review of Model Expo and a chance to show off kits in progress, completed builds and some new products. Also a few of us brought in kits that took part in the Warbirds club display and also some general entries. A highlight was the number of attending members which was great and also some new faces as a result of our Expo display. Its always a pleasure when new prospective members come by for a visit, as it gives us an opportunity to showcase who we are and what we love doing. Martin Reid our club president led a discussion on abrasive techniques including tools of the trade, as well providing general tips and skills required from a building perspective. One thing I personally love about Warbirds is that all members are included in topics of conversation which is also backed up by skillful and knowledgeable members. Here are some pics of what was on the table and this meeting gave us plenty to see.
Our next meeting is on again this Sunday and will be an opportunity to discuss Model Expo that was on over the Queens Birthday long weekend. Members will be bringing along their display and entry kits for general discussion and also be preparing for our coming AGM to be held next month.
See you all there!
