August Models

Here's the models from the August meeting.  Thanks, as usual, to Paul for the photos.

Scott L's 1/72 Toxso 155mm Howitzer towed by his M4 High Speed Tractor from July
Toxso is a newish company many people are probably unfamiliar with.  Here's a link to an in-box review of this kit: Toxso M114A1 155mm 

Dennis did up this 1/700 diorama of two U-Boats sinking a freighter in the Gulf of Mexico in 1942 - Model of the Month
 The U-Boat war of the US coast in 1942 is not widely known about.  Wikipedia has a nice article to get you up to speed on this part of World War 2 history:  Second Happy Time

Pablo's Bandai BB-8 1/12 scale
 For those of you who are not Star Wars fans, BB-8 is of course the droid introduced in 2015's The Force Awakens.

Marty brought in the Encore Model UC-78 Bobcat 'Bamboo Bomber'
 Marty reported that this kit was a challenge to complete.  Personally, I was impressed with the quality of the build.

Gary's Airfix 1/72 Hurricane in Belgian markings.  
More about the Hurricane in Belian service: Hawker Hurricane.  According to that site, Gary's Hurricane was destroyed on the ground by German bombers on May 10, 1940.

Jon's Arsenal-Delanne 10C.2, 1/72, from a Planet Models kit
What on Earth this thing?  It's a French experimental two-seat fighter that was undergoing testing in 1940. Link one and Link two.
