JUNE was a big meeting. The theme contest and BBQ had people showing up for sure! We had 22 members and 3 guests who brought in 24 models, mostly for the theme contest.
BBQ Night: What’s summertime without a BBQ? We held our annual BBQ and it went well. Thanks to the guys who supplied the shindig and the gents who worked the grill. Great job!
BPMS BLACK-OUT THEME CONTEST: The theme was finally upon us! All we asked was for the members to build something that could be tied into the Basic Black Theme. We had a lot of nice work on the tables, and the winners were as follows:
- Kamila L - Beetle
- Kevin A - Joachin Peiper
- Ray W - U-2
- Howell S - Black Templars
- Angelo T - F-14A Black Tomcat
- Black Knight: Ed J - U-505 U-Boat
- Black Sheep: Israel A - Black Beauty
- Black & Blue: Tim G - Warhammer
- Paint It Black: Bob E - Model T
The quality of the work was top notch which made our job as judges very difficult. We would like to thank all the members who built for the theme and thanks to my co-sponsors, Frank, Russ and Kosta for sponsoring a fun theme for the group to build for.
Raffle: We didn’t have a raffle this month. We’ll likely be starting it up again for July.
On the agenda: JULY
BASIC SKILLS - SEAMS: We haven’t had a basic skills clinic in a while, what batter place to start up again at than seam filling? There are as many techniques as there are modelers, so this should be pretty educational. At this point Frank and your humble narrator will be your hosts, but we encourage you to bring in or be prepared to tell the group about some methods you employ.
