  • Cancer took Chris Etzel from among us on 13 December 2017. Chris was the man behind that very well-known resin company, "Etzel's Speed Classics." Read his full obituary at: http://www.shirleybrothers.com/obituaries/Christopher-Etzel/#!/Obituary. MAMA sends our deepest condolences to his widow, Vicki, and surviving parents and siblings.
  • Take the 2017 MAMA Survey. We want your ideas on how to make our club even better in your view, increase participation, and grow our membership. We are looking to identify what you like about MAMA and what areas you feel need attention. We will use the results from this survey to develop a plan that builds on your likes and discontinues or changes the things that are not meeting your expectations. We'll collect survey respones through the January meeting.
  • Don't forget: MAMA's first ever Challenge Build! It started as a challenge between Dave Toups and Norman Veber to complete one of the new Ford Bronco kits. They have now extended their challenge to the whole club to complete a Bronco by the January 2018 meeting. So c'mon, let's see what you can do with a Bronco! Looks like Cruz has already finished his: Cruz's Bronco
  • Photos from our 2017 Mid-Atlantic NNL can still be seen on the (Scale Auto's Facebook page).
  • As we are into the winter months, remember, if Prince George’s county has a snow emergency in effect, there will NOT be a meeting. The inclement Weather Phone Number to check is: (301) 474-0646.
  • to MAMA's Diner, the official home of the Maryland Automotive Modelers' Association (MAMA), where we serve entrees of fun, friendship, and model cars.

    The highlight of our December meeting was our annual holiday feastival! Okay, I made up that word, but it is fitting. If anyone went home hungry it certainly was not for a lack of food. A big thank you to everyone who brought food for us to share and enjoy.

    We want to give a special shout out to Mary Veber and Suzanne Bradford for all the work they did, not just this year, but every year in setting up our food tables. They not only make sure everything we need to stuff our faces is there, they organize it to make it easy for us to load our plates and make our sandwiches with out making too much of a mess (though some of us still managed to plop something on the table.)


    We were fortunate to welcome back a few folks whom we hadn't seen in a little while:


    As usual there were plenty of finished and in-progress models on the display table:
