See ya at the April S&T!!

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


President Burggren was supposed to do a painting clinic…but he forgot.  So that has been rescheduled to our 3T’s in May.
We are all aware of the incredible brush painting JR does on his dirt car models.  Al George thought we might like to see some hand painting that Tom Bauer did back in the 1970’s(?).  Tom’s job on “Chessie System” is amazing!
