Meeting Notice. IPMS Houston Monthly Meeting tomorrow, Tuesday 14th November – and an attachment!

Good morning to you all. Yes, we’re just a day away from the November IPMS Houston meeting…

The time: 1900hrs, Tuesday 14th November
The place: Tracy Gee Community Center, 3599 Westcenter Dr, Houston, TX 77042

This month, the demo is by Roy McCartney – he brings to us a nifty circle-cutting device which may be a suitable Christmas gift (or even a pre-seasonal gift depending on the generosity of your or your family’s collective wallet) if you’re still casting about for ideas.

Vince is also planning to do a kit review. I was actually slated to do this but I have to depart to London tonight for a delightful week of budget planning with my colleagues. So, thanks to Vince for stepping in.

In return, I will do my best to visit one of my favo(u)rite model shops while there (no, not Hannants, their weekday opening times are completely useless) and report on what’s new there. Rick can’t have *all* the fun visiting the decent brick-and-mortar establishments which remain.

Vince and Mike will give a brief rundown on the Gundam Grand Prix held at HobbyTown on 4th November. If you catch yourself sneering that Gundam’s “really geeky”, just remember you’re a member of a club affiliated with IPMS/USA, which has a “constitution” and “bylaws”…


From Rick Cotton – And Now For Something Completely Different… – an excellent and in-depth review and building article on the rather wonderful looking GMC 2×4 truck with a 40mm Bofors anti-aircraft gun. Grab some coffee and enjoy the read. Thanks to Rick for such a good article.

Enjoy the meeting,
Tim Campbell
Secretary, IPMS Houston
