Our November 16 in-person meeting featured discussions about possible meeting themes for 2024, some of our favorite/essential modeling tools ranging from the luxe GodHand sprue cutters to the dependable great quality (and more affordable) Tamiya sprue cutters, to the the no-cost, multi-function straight-pin-taped-to-a-toothpick, double sided razor saws, and items in-between. Greg Aldi also reported on some hobby shops he recently visited in New York and Massachusetts, ranging from the bizarre and musty to the top tier. The meeting concluded with the inspection of projects members brought along for show and tell.
National Naval Aviation Museum Photo Tour
Tonight Brian Fowler presented on his recent visit to the newly reopened National Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola, FL. He and Shawn Hays stopped there in August on the way to the IPMS Nationals in San Marcos, TX.
The photos include views of many rare and historically significant aircraft including some great detail shots. Brian generously added additional notes to his presentation and shares it here in PDF format.
Show and Tell
IPMS/USA Hudson Valley Historical Miniatures Guild Show Photo Review
Several club members attended the HVHMG (aka "the Poughkeepsie show") on October 28, and enjoyed a laudable degree of contest success as well as shopping a rich offering of kits and supplies from vendors. Here's a gallery of contest table photos to give you an idea of the variety of fine modeling on display.
Online meetings held the first Thursday of the month. Next Zoom meeting will be 12/7/23.
