October Meeting Update

Another meeting done and dusted with the format change marked down as a success. The general feel of moving from a formatted agenda to a more free moving one has proved to be the right mix and my be just what we needed. We had a general chat about this, and the consensus was that the meeting should be flexible with the option of fine tuning as we go. A few of us brought along some kits to build, we had a collection of pre loved kits that were for sale, as well as a demonstration on decanting spray paint from a rattle can into a paint pot.

The formalities were occupied with a small 15-20 segment at the beginning, with an open forum topic of ‘building for yourself or for the club’ and a ‘whats on the table’ segment in the middle, plus a wind up towards the end with the demonstration. In between the formal parts we built our kits and had general chats, with the whole format being really engaging, with plenty of time to cover what we need to as a club and to include all the more fun bits.

This was a great meeting and will no doubt form a template for future meetings.


Next Meeting Sunday 2nd October

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.

Next Meeting Sunday 11th September

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!

August Meeting Update

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.
