Fathers’ Day musings from Rick

For you fathers out there – a Happy Fathers’ Day. While I had relaxing plans built into the day too, I over-optimistically thought I could get a faucet changed out in the kids’ bathroom pretty easily. Ha!

AMPS CENTEX Armor Expo 2017 – details included

Morning all,

As promised in a previous email, please find attached the flyer for the (deep breath) Austin Armor Builders Society In Association With Armor Modeling & Preservation Society presenting Armor Modeling & Preservation Society Central Texas Armor Exposition 2017. And people say we modelers take ourselves too seriously…
I mean, even reduced to the world’s longest acronym, it would still be AABSAMPSCENTEXARMOREXPO™ and still have one of the four “Armor” mentions spelled incorrectly, in full, in the show title. I’m kidding.
It’s in Georgetown, sounds like a great show, and as mentioned previously, has a “tankbuster” aircraft element to it for you non-treadheads (see also “Weekend in Treadhead Land” and “When the Wheels Fall Off Your Train of Happiness“, ©Cotton, Rick, IPMS Houston, 2017).
And last but not least, thanks to Rick for forwarding me his copy of the flyer as mine somehow made it to the recycling bin too soon.
Cheers,
Tim Campbell
IPMS Houston Secretary
