  • Sponsor contributions to support our upcoming Mid-Atlantic NNL on May 9th are already starting to arrive! Diecasm (the parent company of Automodello), Flock It!, Highlight Model Studio, and Pro-Tech Model Parts are the first companies to contribute their fine products. And, according to a notice I received from the USPS, there is at least one more company's contribution on the way! MAMA extends our deepest gratitude for the massive generosity these companies have displayed to us. The world of our hobby is a far better place because companies like these are willing to help.

    Scenes from our January meeting:

    Although we had a light turn out for the January meeting as the threat of messy winter weather loomed large over the Mid-Atlantic region, we still had lots of of model cars in the display table!

    Lyle's latest project is progressing nicely.

    JC Reckner's Porsche Projects.

    Dave Redzensky displayed these three.


    Rick Donovan showed diecast Snake and Mongoose Funny Cars along with a diecast Wild Willy Borsch Winged Epress Fuel Altered and his AMC drag racer.



    When was the last time you saw one of these kits?.

    Norman recently purchased a set of hand-laced wired wheels for an MPC 1/12 Bently Blower kit..

    Brad is working on this 1932 Deusenberg French Speedster.

    I didn't see who snuck this nicely built dirt tracker on to the display table, but I think Gary knows who I'd guess it was.

    Nick Sickle shared his most recent find with us.

    Rex Turner never has a shortage of Ford-based projects to keep him busy.

    The Pontiac Parking area was active with four cars on display.

    Dave Schmitt's projects are coming along nicely.

    Ron Leedy displayed this Charger and Chevy. The Charger is a replica of his first car.

    Sorry to report that there was nothing to identify who placed this scene on the display table..

    The note on the box says it all.

    Kevin has been spending some money on Ebay lately. That Olds is a resin altered wheelbase gasser that was cast in that orange color.

    Kenny is starting in on a new drag racing project..

    Steve Buter is fitting a driver figure to his hot rod.

    Here are some scenes from throughout the day.










    The raffle table help several goodies, as usual.

    We didn't just have cookies, we had lots of cookies! Candies too! Thanks Matt!
