TRIAD Plastic Modeling Society
LAST MAJOR UPDATE 3/17/18
From Mark Jahsan: "Model kit instructions are just one man's opinion." Funny!
Holy cow! Twenty-one members and guests…count ‘em…twenty one…attended the March Work Session. Is that a record for a Work Session? Space was tight…and frankly, I got tired of JR sitting on my lap….
NOTE: At the April Work Session, we are going to do something different. Alan Vandam suggested we each bring up to five of our favorite tools and/or modeling tips and display/demonstrate them. Have a favorite tool that works great or saves time? Figured out a shortcut? Share them at the April Work Session. I’ll bring in paint stripper…..
Great to see Judy Jayne…she brought in extra copies of FSM which featured Dan’s models and handed them out. Thanks, Judy!
We heard from Donald Scott who was a founding member. He still lives in S.C. so don’t expect to see him anytime soon!
Alan advised that the latest Airfix magazine has a comprehensive modeling paint cross reference chart included. Check it out.
Big Daddy offered to build an AMT Model T delivery truck for a guy. Good luck!
Can-Am model contest in Livonia Oct 6. We will probably move the October S&T to Oct 20.
Bad news: Revell, Revell Monogram, and Revell Germany, which are owned by Hobbico, are kaput. Have heard it will take $10 million for you to take control. Also, Grandt-Line is closing after sixty years on June 1. Hope somebody purchases them.
Here is a photo of Deb assembling a Can-Am winning B-17!
