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

Field Report – 2017 Scalefest – North Central Texas show

Good morning all,

Please find attached, for your enjoyment, Rick’s NorCenTex™ field report for Scalefest.
Messrs Cotton, Kern and Moon (wouldn’t that just make a great name for a law firm?) all won awards – well done chaps.
Funnily enough. I was just thinking “When is Scalefest? I should really go” when this arrived in my inbox, so roll on 2018…
Cheers,
Tim Campbell
Secretary, IPMS Houston

Trip To Tulsa

To Club Members,
Even before I left, I had several club members ask me to do a write up on our visit to the Tulsa Model Show (held last Saturday), so here it is attached.  I hope you enjoy it.  Our man about town, Rick Cotton, was in Las Vegas this past weekend, so I would not be surprised if we get a travel log from him as well.
See you tomorrow night.

Two model shows were held so far this month, one in Tulsa, OK. attended by yours truly and one in New Orleans. LA. attended by Richard Kern.  Time permitting, both Richard and I will give quick overviews of these two events.
