Scenes from our June meeting:
Attendance seemed a little light for the June meeting,
which is not surprising for this time of year. Car shows,

their house?) and more take priority over club meetings
when the weather turns nice.
But none of that prevented our most intrepid members

This is one of five models that Rich Wilson displayed
and it is the first Lotus Europa kit that many of us have
actually seen built.
Rich also was happy to display a picture of his son David,
who's recently returned home from an Army deployment,
along with his daughter-in-law and grand daughters. Looks

flat black 1953 pickup that was hauling it.
I didn't see who put this gasser out either.
Looks like Paul Lee is having thoughts of off-roading
with this 1932 Five-Window. It was one of five that he
showed this month.
Here's Rick looking awful guilty...
Leonard Harrod is at it again. This time he's going Pro

Brad displayed this figurine. It was painted by a modeler
who is in his 80's.
As always, there was non-stop shopping,milling around,
and kibitzing about

Steve reacts to Matt with an incredulous expression like
