Home of the modeling savants....Celebrating forty years of modeling fun, education, and history in 2024!

See ya at the January Work Session!

Mark Jahsan brought in an oldie but a real goodie!  He started with a truck from AMT and then added a MPC(Airfix) P-51 Mustang.  This depicts a Mustang sold by the Dominican Republic Air Force to a private buyer.  I love the protective wrapping!  What a great idea for a model!  Great job, Mark!

Oops…Bill Fink brought in a great looking German Halftrack Sd.Kfz 251 Ausf G.  I think it was an Academy kit.  It had those adorable individual track links!  The oops is because HE forgot to remind me to take a photo!  Bill arrived after the meeting started.  Take my word for it…it looked perfect.  It was a bridge laying version.  Way cool!   

Let’s begin with Keith Lemke’s 1950 Ford truck cab deer rifle blind.  Stop and check out the detail.  There is a figure inside.  And a case of beer.  Check out the antlers above the sliding front window.  A rifle with a scope.  Note the cool base.  The weatherd wood.  Keep looking…there is more to see!  Great job, Keith!

Here are 4 photos of the members and guests having a grand time.  By the way, we have heard that Bill Leger is doing well and working on a novel!  I think it will be called “The Modeling Geniuses of TRIAD”.  Obviously, a book of fiction!  Feller...where are you????

Doug Seekman has been working on this 1/72 (42”) Revell U-190 Type XXC/40 U-Boat for around two years…for Dale Yonkers.  What the hell took so long you ask!  Well, I’ll tell ya…how about 1,000+ PE parts to start with!  He painted with Tamiya.  How moly…what a great job.  See the snorkel?  Next is his Academy T-33 Shooting Star, with Experts Choice Decals, True Detail seats, and painted in Alclad Polished Aluminum.  He struggled with the same crappy Alclad gloss black primer I did.  I’m still honked!  And then we have his Monogram F-84F Thunder Streak painted with Hataka Orange Line lacquer paint.  He used Blackbird decals.  Man, this guy knows how to model!! .

Spencer Kosc and Mom Janel stopped in.  Spencer is a Freshman and he’s already on the honor roll…and so are his models!  Check out his ICM Type XXXIIB Sechund (Early) which he built out of the box except for the dome which he scratchbuilt from molded clear resin.  The figures are from Revell…check out the second photo!  Holy cow…such detail for a tiny figure!  I am impressed!  He used Tamiya paint and oils for weathering.  Sure glad he joined us today!
