About the club

We are a group of people who enjoy the hobby of plastic model building. Our members interests range from Aircraft, Automobiles, Ships, Figures, Armour, to Sci Fi. We have all skill levels from beginners to some pretty talented modellers, but we mainly meet to share our work, ideas, tips and techniques, and talk about modelling in general.

Rodney – Reimagined Battlestar Gallactica Cylon Raider, Gundam Barbatos. Rodneys Raider is a brilliant piece of work with many shades of Alclad metalics, with a random weathered panels. Fine work!





Steve F - R100 and Hindenberg. Steve recently completed his R100 and brought his Hindenberg from many years ago for comparison.




Keith – In Progress Tiger I, JSU-152, 203mm B4 Russian Howitzer. Keith is still working on these, but you can tell the B4 Cannon was a meticulous and detailed build. Great patience Keith!


Rob – Viking Ship. Rob is making progress on his Revell Viking ship.



Dennis Fokker DR1 Red Baron. This R/C model was built from scratch by Dennis using same parts/material/operational movements as the real article.

Also along tonight, Friend of the Club, R/C Warship and Tank enthusiast, AND plastic model builder - Curt.

Welcome to new member Shawn! Glad to have you aboard!

See Facebook Photo Galleery associated with this meeting


Meeting Highlights:
Derrick brought along a couple of his builds – Japanese Claude and Romanian IAR80, unique aircraft, nice job!



Dennis brought his 1/5 scale SE5A with Billy Bishop markings. This thing flys!






Gary brought in a beautiful Edsel…



Steve F shows off the old AMY Winnie Mae, and a Noorduyn Norseman in pre-confederation Nfld VO registration markings.




Curt shows us his AMT 1/1400 Starship USS Enterprise D. This is blacked out with black paint, will be painted in the grey/beige colors, and will have LED and Phaser ring colors installed. That means over 1000 scratch outs of the paint to get the lights to shine through inside. Curt hopes this will be done for the Show in Oct. I personally can’t wait to see it.





Joe showed his in-progress Sherman Tank build, and a track display with different types of tracks, Plastic individual link for the Sherman (foreground), Friul metal Panther tank tracks with Burnishing Fluid applied (middle). Friul metal Tiger I tracks painted Burnt Iron (behind). Tamiya XF-84 Burnt Iron paint bottle behind tank.



Craig shows us his entry for the Club Egg Plane contest, his Focke-Wolf FW190.



Be sure to check out next month to see the results of our Egg Plane competition!
