11/12/2020 Zoom mini meeting report

Twenty people attended the meeting. No new kit releases reported this week. 

 IPMS/BPMS MEMBERS ONLY: The charter is up for renewal. Please provide your membership # and expiration date to Frank C as soon as possible. Thanks in advance. 

Also, BPMS was asked about sponsoring a trophy package for the 2021 Nationals (assuming they are held). Votes will be taken at a future meeting. We had an update on the Community Center. The building and the grounds remain closed and are likely to remain that way into the start of 2021. That led to a discussion on the Christmas lunch and it looks like that'll be postponed too, unless someone can find a restaurant that can accommodate us. Any thoughts? 

There was a lot of in progress and completed work: Panther A, Cthulhu, steampunk fish submarine, EA 6 Prowler, F 117, Nosferatu, Celtic noble, Crown Victoria, FW 190, P 40, MiG 15, El Camino, DH 88 Comet, Yak 55, the Hulk, Stug 4, Brumbar, Opel Blitz, Stalin tank. We saw a demonstration of the Dspiae ball bearing pin vice, pricey maybe, but comfortable to use and inexpensive bits are readily available. We also had a well-illustrated talk on "Liquid Gravity" including tools and techniques needed to get it to stay where you want it. Hopefully we'll have more demonstrations at the next meeting which is Nov. 19 at 8 pm. Invites to follow. Hope to see you there.
