TUESDAY, 04/26/22 BPMS Zoom Mini Meeting

Zoom Meetings are now on TUESDAYS!

Fourteen people attended our first Tuesday zoom meeting, which is pretty good considering we had a zoom meeting last Thursday and an in-person meeting the following day. Attendance at the in-person meeting was at pe-pandemic level and a large number of models were on display. Expect to see them again in May at the first Quarterly Contest. BTW, there are only three Quarterly Contests in 2022 (huh?). We tried to see if zoom would work at the Community Center without any additional equipment. It didn't, so we posted photos and videos of the meeting on the BPMS Facebook page.
Even though he was on the road, Lou reported IBG's 1/35 Polish 7TP light tank was now available. We also heard that Micro Mir released the USS Monitor in 1/144. In progress and completed work included: SAAB J-32, Fw-500, A-10 (Don was pleasantly surprised by this 1/48 Italeri kit), Type XXIII U-Boat, An-74 (on skis), M1-A1 Abrams, Wild Bill Hickock figure, F-84 G and Sdkfz 250 (an old build Mike is re-working). The tool was Museum Wax. Gil will compare it to similar products and share his findings. We had time to revisit old topics. Vaughn shared several photos of the boxes he built to transport his models. Mark told the story of the modeler who beat the system by getting Home Depot to mix a gallon of Dunkelgreb only to find that house paint ain't model paint. Mike had questions about glaze medium and Frank had questions about undercoats for natural metal finishes. Mr. K gave his son's Twitch channel, Warduck Miniatures, a plug. Next meeting is 5/3/22 at 7:30pm. Invites to follow. Hope to see you there.
