JUNE was a big meeting. The theme contest and BBQ had people showing up for sure!. We had 28 members and 2 guests who brought in 34 models, mostly for the theme contest. 

June Meeting

BBQ Night: What’s summertime without a BBQ? We held our annual BBQ and it went well. Thanks to all the guys who supplied the shindig and the gents who worked the grill. Great job!

The quality of the work was top notch which made as judges’ job very difficult. A special thanks all the members who built for the theme and thanks to Jeff Eng and Gordon Cheung for sponsoring a fun theme for the group to build for! 

RIVETS THEME CONTEST: With 1946 in the history books we can look forward to the December theme contest: RIVETS! Find contest details HERE. Sponsored by Russ Holcomb and Tom Knoll. 

Raffle: We had another fun raffle this month. We’ll likely have another for July. 

On the agenda: JULY 
BASIC SKILLS – SEAM FILLING: One of the most basic skills in the hobby would be seam filling. However each of us has a different way to approach this challenge. Joe Barrett and your humble narrator will explore some of our favorite methods. If you have some ideas or pointers to add, feel free to do so! Perhaps prepare a couple words and join us!


Meeting Date:

Same time,
Same Place!

December 2018 Theme Contest: RIVETS!

This December, think rivets, the ubiquitous fasteners you see on bridges, battleships and blue jeans. You also see them on almost every model kit. Early kits were famous for their rivets, the bigger the better. Now you can build that classic reissue without embarrassment. Or you can build a newer kit where the rivets are to scale. Entries can be any time period, any category, any scale [FYI: Judges may have difficulty counting rivets on a 1/700 scale destroyer]. And for you SOBs (Sons Of Brooklyn) in BPMS, the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place awards will have a special place on your shelf. One last thing, the Frankenstein Monster had electrodes in his neck, not rivets. So stop screwing around, bolt the door and start building something with rivets.
