Our March meeting went very well and we had some great discussions on various topics. Our meeting table was impressively full included many boxing’s of newly purchased kits, a few built kits as well as some new products.
We also hosted the presentation for our BAB (Build A Bitch) and Gunna Build which was a carry over from last years efforts.
The BAB is a mini event where the builder has to complete or get very close to completing a nasty kit. It may be nasty for reasons such as:
- age of kit
- horrible fit of parts
- terrible plastic quality
- just plain ugly
- difficult to construct
- way out of your comfort zone
The Gunna Build is also a mini event, where the builder selects a kit from the stash that is no more than 25% complete or completely fresh. Generally its a kit that you wanted to build but never really got there, or one that you started but it ended up as a shelf queen.
The three place getter’s for the Gunna Build:
- 1st – Mike Dawkins
- 2nd – Martin Reid
- 3rd – Michael Turner
Winner for the Build A Bitch award – Martin Reid.
Model Expo 2020 is getting closer and so is our club display. I wont give anything away, but it will be a unique display which will invoke some thought as to why we build scale models.
