December Catch-up

T-34/85 modeled by Paul Bishop. Love the weathering.

I know- I've done it again! Sorry about having to catch us up on events from the second half of the year. After working on the computer all day, sometimes it's hard to want to spend more time on the computer. Now, however, I'll have to do a better job of posting on the events of our Southern Front club, as it looks like we're about to get our official membership as a chapter in the IPMS. I'll of course post an item when that happens. 

Our annual Christmas club meeting is about to take place, and I thought I'd better post a bunch more photos. Here's a representative showing of our club meeting models since June, and I'll try to post more of them before the new year. I also apologize if I've gotten anyone's names wrong, just post a comment and let me get it corrected!

Cold War German tank destroyer in progress, I think also by Ron.

Cold War submarines from Bill's collection.

Clay built these great looking 1/48 Corsairs.

Ryan enjoys building Sci-Fi models. Spindrift from Land of the Giants and the Flying Sub from Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea.

On "Speculation" theme night, Ron brought in this unusual armor model.

At the contest in Ogden, Bill's 1/144 X-15's won First Place in Real Spacecraft.

Daniel's building the BIG MODEL of New Jersey (I think it was that one...), with lots of photoetch.

Daniel gave us a demonstration of photoetch techniques. Here's a close up of the photoetch on a battleship's turret. I'll be posting more on his demo.
