Home of the modeling savants....Celebrating thirty-four years of modeling fun, education, and history in 2018!
TRIAD Plastic Modeling Society
Bob Thompson. What can you possibly say that hasn’t already been said? How many times do I have to say he’s a great modeler? A great figure painter. He’s also a historian…he told us that General Custer was the first person to wear an “Arrow” shirt. OK, I guess we have to put up with the bad to enjoy all the good! First we have his ICM German Fire Truck with all kinds of cool figures and damage…glowing embers, smoke, broken glass, and more. Bob scratchbuilt the pump…just great! After that, we have his 1945 era Marine Doberman dog handlers. The dogs did a great job and so did Bob. No dog poo…but stay tuned for Bill Leger…he doesn’t disappoint! ;-)
With heavy snow falling and the threat of high winds, blowing snow, and frigid temperatures right around the corner, the crowd was down to a sweet sixteen. Danny Jayne was home sick and Tim’s ride was in the shop for an engine replacement. Gemzer wasn’t there so who’s complaining! ;-) Be sure and check out the homepage for ordering info for TRIAD fashion wear. Let’s start with new guy Joe Anderson and his good buddy Rich Stahel. Yeah, these guys come waltzing into our meeting and Joe shows off three absolutely beautiful German Panzer IV’s. This guy really knows his modeling and history stuff! And he knows his chemistry, too! Well, I think Joe and Rich have the right “chemistry” to fit right into TRIAD. Here is the photo of his Panzerkampwagon IV Ausf.H, a Flakpanzer IV Whirbelwind, and his Strumgechulze IV .163. Fantastic…hope you guys can hang with us!
