02/04/2021 BPMS Zoom mini meeting report

Twenty people were at the meeting. It was reported that Round 2 Models has a new partner. What does it mean? We'll have to wait and see. New releases, an F4B from Tamiya and an MB1 Armored Walker from Machination Studios. In progress and completed work included: Blenheim, Beaufighter, Me 262, F15, Yak 55M, Yacht America, Edsel, Mirage 5, VW Baja Bug, VW Pick-up truck, Korean War P51, Zero, Swordfish, Fokker DR 1 and Star Wars Stormtrooper (soft plastic) figure. New acquisitions ranged from small (F16 decals) to medium (figures from Alpine and Evolution, Eurocopter Tigre HAP, 55E Tiger 2 and Sd Kfz 251) to big (1/8 scale Ferrari F250 - a 100 package subscription kit). President Tom told us about the YouTube model contest where he represented BPMS with his Panther. Haven't seen it yet? Check our Facebook page. Thanks, Tom. Thanks as well to Gil for showing us the Kasi mat, a silicone platform made for repairing cell phones but with many features modelers will appreciate. About that soft plastic Stormtrooper. He was primed with Krylon spray and it worked well. Some guys use Red Devil Varnish or Minwax poly acrylics. What did you use on that Imex Civil War Cavalry set you won at the Super Raffle? Next meeting is 2/11/21 at 8 pm. Invites to follow. Hope to see you there.
