02/18/2021 BPMS Zoom mini meeting

Sixteen people attended the meeting. The IPMS Las Vegas Convention is a "go" according to their website. Closer to home, the NJ Toy Soldier show will be held from 9am to 3pm on 3/7/21 at the Hilton Hotel, 650 Terrace Ave, Hasbrouck Heights, NJ. Masks and distancing required for NJ, nothing mentioned for NV. Two releases were noted, a 1/72 WW1 German U-boat and a 1/8 sale Huey B-1. In progress and completed work included: SH-3, He 219, Challenger 2, P51 (South Korean markings), Woodpecker, Perseus (Master Box version), Cthulhu (buddy version), Panzer 3 (DAK markings), F9F Panther and Landmaster 1. Acquisitions included: 1953 Ford Victoria, several Metal Earth kits - farm tractor, freight train and Imperial Shuttle (Star Wars). Do you need decals for your 1/72 Golden Knights C 47? Well, if you do, it's your lucky day because Mr. K has a set for you. Contact him directly. For tools, we saw scribers from the dollar store and punch and die sets from MMM-USA and Waldron, by way of Kitlinx. Here's a tip, wine bottle foil can make convincing bolt heads with the help of an MMM-USA hex shaped micro punch. Here's another tip, a drop of CA glue sitting on wax (if you were there, you saw how to prepare a tea candle) won't set as fast as a drop sitting on most surfaces. An old timer said it also happens on film negatives but he didn't say where to find any negatives. You, however, can find us at 8pm on 2/25/21. Invites to follow. Hope to see you there. 
  • Part 1 starts promptly at 8PM EST.
