Scenes from our February meeting:
Rich Wilson wrote an item titled, "I Hate Painting"
for the February
Newsletter about his technique for painting
colored plastic without having the plastic dye bleed through
light colored paints. He showed off this Bronco body to
illustrate his results. The body had been molded in the
dark orange color of that sprue piece you see in the picture.
There's not a hint of orange bleed-through in the white
and yellow paint that Rich applied. Check out his article
to see how he did it.
This Beetle Van, presumably based on the C-1 Models resin
kit, made for a sharp-looking modern custom with its color-keyed
large diameter wheels.
Ron Bradley debuted this handsome trophy (which he designed
and assembled) to be awarded to the winner of the "The
Race of Gentlemen" class in our upcoming Mid-Atlantic
Here's Sean receiving his punishment for showing up late.
Leaning up against that block wall must've made Bill think he
was posing for a mug shot.
Now, here's an El Camino that can really haul.
Sorry to report that I did not see who displayed this
well-executed Carson-topped custom.
Again, I didn't see who put this Mustang/Ford GT mash-up
on the table. But it was very well done.
You can see vestiges of this Salt Flats competitor's
previous life as a 1968 Corvette before Bill Stillwagon
Newsletter Editor Tim Sickle displayed this die-cast
K.I.T.T. car with working scanner LED hood light.
Lyle Willits showed off this very tastefully done Ford
F100 custom based on the Monogram Foose kit.
Whoever assembled this cleanly built Bronco has every reason to be pround.
As usual, Ron had plenty of new kits available for us to buy.
Here's a large scale project just getting started.
Here's a VW Caddy pickup done in tuner fashion.
There was even a die-cast Saturn Sky on display.
Looks like Dave Schmitt is starting in on another highly detailed build.
As always, there was the non-stop talking about model
Some one built 1957 Ford and 1953 Chevy Gassers.
When was the last time you saw a built JoHan Mercury
Comet funny car?
There is a lot of work going into this 1966 Chevrolet Nova.
There were quite a few nice items available on the raffle table.
We celebrated the return of the cookies to our meeting! There was much rejoicing.
You can see a LOT more photos of our February meeting
