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.

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!

Keep Building!!!!

Dave has been very productive lately, producing more kits, figures and Dio’s. Dave always says that a figure really sets off a kit display. He is right! Here are two recent pieces.




Rod is working on his Egg plane entries for next month, Eggagi and Black bird (it lays eggs).




Chris W finished his Marlet (Wildcat), it made the rounds on the 48 Scale aircraft Facebook sites, lots of great comments!






Steve F - A unique aircraft, Bristol Beaufighter MKII with Merlin Engines. That’s different.



Dennis brought in his Vickers Vimy RC.




Gary with his Beatnik Bandit.



See you next month

Dave keeps pumping out the figures. Looks really nice, Dave!

Special note – Dave presented a session on figure painting in his studio this month, it went over very well, we hope to do another session at some point and hopefully Dave can give seminar at Club day in a few months.

Colin is one of two juniors we have at the club. He just finished his 2016 Camaro, and several folks commented on how his finish is really improving! Nice job Colin!

Rodney has a pair of completed kits for this meeting, A Cessna 172 (apparently the decals were a little bit challenging J ) and his Opel Blitz Wagon. Great work Rodney!

Bill has started a CAF Labrador Helicopter. Can’t wait to see that done!

And finally Steve F’s Monty’s Humber.

That’s it for this month, see you next month and KEEP BUILDING!!!!!
