Report from Grapevine, and the library, and more photos

While the weather may have scared off most of our members, a few made the trek to the Metroplex for this year’s Scalefest. Check out Rick Cotton’s report here, or on the Articles page.

Some of those that weren’t on the road north last Saturday spent some time setting up our annual display at the Houston Public Library downtown. This year we got all four display cases, with nice acrylic stands, and printed ID cards. We’ll have photos soon, but you can see the displays in person through August or September.

Speaking of photos, all of the photos from Modelmania are on the Galleries page.

IPMS Houston at Comicpalooza

For the fourth(?) year in a row, we manned a fan table at Comicpalooza in the George R. Brown Convention Center over the holiday weekend. Vince Barrale presented a workshop on Basic Lighting for Sci Fi Modeling on Saturday. Club members Mike Stucker, Jeff Schmitz, John Hunt, German Tapia, and Michael Shelley manned the table at various times answering questions from passers-by while trying to get a little work done. Fun was had by all (at least no one has told me otherwise.)

Here’s a photo from Mike Stucker showing Vince and Michael pretending to look busy for the camera.

Photos from May Meeting

I didn’t get them posted here earlier, but here are some photos from Tom Moon of show-and-tell subjects taken at our May meeting.

Glacial Updates

Our platoon of poorly-trained sloths is slowly working through the backlog, but there are a few ModelMania 2015 photos on the Galleries page, and we have a new article by John Hunt about planning ahead. . . way ahead. (Scroll down to his section of the Articles page.)

Stop by our booth (#1747) this weekend if you’re at Comicpalooza in the George R. Brown Convention Center.
