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:
Well, a busy weekend with various events including the Avalon Air Show, Eastern Suburbs Swap ‘n’ Sell and car shows didn’t deter the die-hards! It was great to see well-respected local modelling guru Ian Hill come along. With Ian’s digital artwork endeavours, he remains a plastic modeller and wowed us with a Warmachine. Quite apt as we make 2017 the year to promote our Warmachine interest group where members and guests are encouraged to bring along their non-avaiation military modelling endeavours.
Ian presented his Panther G (Late) as built from the Dragon 1/35 kit. It’s depicted as it served in Budapest in February / March 1945 in Operation Konrad. Note the steel wheel on the last station in the chassis with all other wheels being the usual rubber types. Also note the serial number. Thanks Ian, we hope to see more Warmachines in future as well as your Warbirds. For Ian’s digital art, visit his website at threedbattleart.com
Our first meeting went very well and gave us an opportunity to cover various in progress builds, new purchases, up coming events and lots of general modelling chat and the year ahead.
Below are some images of what members had brought along.
Stephen Keogh has kindly passed on images of his collection of finely built and finished Wildcats and Martlets, plus an interesting article explaining the collection and his experience with these kits. Click here to see the full article.
