Monday morning greetings to you all – Q4/2017 is upon us and with it, the October IPMS Houston meeting…
The time: 1900hrs, Tuesday 10th October
The place: Tracy Gee Community Center, 3599 Westcenter Dr, Houston, TX 77042
First up – need judges for the Capitol Classic on October 14th – the Austin Scale Modelers’ Society show. www.austinsms.org/contest.php
Way behind this week – sorry about that (new job and all that).
July’s meeting on Tuesday night was again popular with 26 people in attendance.
To Club Members,
For those of you who enjoy reading the electronic newsletters I get, attached are the May issues of The Wingman from the IPMS Milwaukee, WI. chapter and the latest newsletter from the Oklahoma Historical Modelers Society in OKC. I hope you enjoy them both.
Some of you have sent me e-mails inquiring when the photos taken by Tim Campbell (volunteered at the last minute – a big thanks to Tim!) atModelmania might be posted on our web site. Tim has now edited those that he took and sent them to Tom Moon for organizing and labeling. As soon as Tom is done, I am sure he will get them to Michael Martin asap for posting on our website (http://www.ipms-houston.org/).
For those of you who remember Kerri Inglebreathsen (from Stavanger) who was a member of our group for a couple of years, I wanted to pass along some photos of an 32nd Italeri F-104G he recently completed in Greek markings and won a First Place with at the IPMS Norway National Convention. Congrats to Kerri for the award and for completing a beautiful model of a tough kit.
Have a great weekend.
To Club Members:
Attached are links to two newsletters, the March issue of the Sprue Examiner (Austin) and the Flak Sheet (North Central Texas). The Flak Sheet is particularly interesting because it has an extensive article on the green color used on the top of Japanese aircraft during World War II.
I hope you enjoy reading both.
