Aside for the usual meeting stuff, we presented the winner of both the ‘Build A Bitch’ and ‘Gunna Build’ events with the office club perpetual trophies. I say winner because Martin Reid won both events, grrrrr……………need I say more.
Overall the meeting went well at the temporary venue, while the water leak gets repaired at our normal Ashburton location. Below are some pics of member kits and show and tell!
Our October meeting went well and included the judging for our famous ‘Build A Bitch’ (BAB) for 2018. All the kits were on the table showing various finishes, and keeping in mind these kits were the worst of the worst considering their vintage and horrible fit etc. Below are images of what the members had to contend with and the results were really quite impressive.
Mark Bujega from ‘Sprue Finders’ also kindly donated prizes for the placings, which was hugely appreciated.
1st Martin – Fokker Souther Cross
2nd Michael Turner – PZL37
3rd Tony Mollica – P-39 Aircobra
Our first meeting of the year went well as did the committee meeting before hand. We had a good turn out with members bringing along a range of kits at various stages up to completion. We also had some great discussions as well as our usual show and tell. Rene accepted his trophy for our Build A Bitch club comp also, so here are some pics of the day.
Here are some pics of our last meeting for the year, and now its time to start thinking of what might hit the work bench for next year.
Martin Reid who has been our club president since the beginning has taken the opportunity to step down due to pressing work commitments. I have now taken on the role of president but will have Martin close by to make sure I dont fall out of line!
The club itself and the hobby in general is in great shape and will continue well into the future, so we have much to look forward to.
Merry xmas and see you all next year.
Another great meeting including our AGM and some nice pizza to wash it all down with. Our members brought along show and tell goodies as show by the images below.
This was our last meeting before Model Expo so this event became a discussion point along with our pending club display. Members brought along various kits and goodies which become a focal point, along with those who brought along kits to build – me included.
Our last meeting was a lot of fun and saw several new faces who came along to see what we are all about. Hopefully they will be brave enough to return having had a taste of our friendly and informative club session.
Below are some pics of member kits and new items from our members:
