May Meeting Wrap-Up

To Club Members,
We had 28 members attend the meeting last night to reviewModelmania 2017 and discuss upcoming shows in Dallas (Eaglesquest) and Grapevine (Scalefest).  One of the highlights of the meeting was Vince’s slide presentation on various member’s work spaces.  Everyone had a great time guessing whose space was whose.  I hope Vince will do this again in the future.

Meeting Notice

To Club Members;
Tuesday night, May 9th, will be our next club meeting, 7:00 p.m.  The main topic of this month’s meeting will be a review of Modelmania 2017 to get your input on what we did right, what went wrong, and what we can do in the future to make our show even better than it already is.  So, please bring your ideas, or if you cannot make it, you can send them to either Tom Moon or Vince Barrale (or me as last resort).

Wingman, F-104G, Etc.

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.
