November 2012 Meeting

Despite all the food eaten during Thanksgiving, about a dozen of High Plain Modelers showed up to the November meeting, which is when we have our elections... or as some say, the month of the year which we devote to "railroading", instead of plastic modeling! 

We have a new president, a new vice-president, a new secretary and the same and reliable treasurer (even when he voted against himself!).

Let's now look at some of the models brought for "show and tell", plus the typical review by the modeler.

This time we also have some real squadron badges stickers. Interestingly enough they have small perforations (to let air out). We were told that a special clear coat is applied to the stickers, to prevent them to peel-off. But often there is a bit of trapped air, making the markings to look like if they "silvered". 

Hence next time you build a model with silvered decals you can say that is a highly realistic finish!

October 2012 Meeting

The October meeting was well attended and it was very smooth. Probably we all were really tired after the High Plains Con XXIII!

Even when it was a very "seat back and relax" kind of meeting, we had all kind of good modelling news and even 6 models were brought in for Show and Tell.
