Monthly Meeting – March 2019

Well Springtime is here, and the days are getting longer and nicer.  But the nice weather didn’t stop our club from bringing 13 new models to the table for our Model-0f-the-Month contest.

One of the topics that came up was how Brian F. was able to shrink his model masters.  He’s been kind enough to share some instructions with us.  Thanks, Brian!  Click here for more.  (Someone ought to tell the webmaster to set up a Downloads page so all of this kind of information can be stored in one easy-to-find location.  Hey look!  We started one!)

Bob P. brought in a real master-work: A scratch-built model of a vintage Ford Motor Company assembly line.  This project was over three years in the making, and has tons of custom parts, and intricate details.  See some below, and more on Bob’s page.

We also discussed some of our choices for a possible new meeting location, and continue to pursue this issue.
