Meeting Notes
President Ken Brent began by discussing Trophy designs and name tags. He outlined progress on ROCON 30. A number of raffle kits were donated by members and Armand Miale said that he expected 2 airbrushes and about 10 of the latest kits to be donated by HobbyLink Japan. Phil Pucher said expected vendors include Armor Plate Press, Jim Wagner, Allen Scott, Jim Humphreys, and Kevin Nichols. Tom Lamelein from Armor Plate Press said that he is working closely with Osprey Publishing to get our club involved with their more modeling intensive works they are projecting for the future. There may be a Make and Take at the Webster Town Day Saturday, August 15. It was mentioned that the Japanese professor from Brockport, who was a guest at one of our meetings some years ago had passed away. Also long time vendor, friend and skilled modeler Mike Memo passed away recently. Ken's 1/48 scale Blohm und Voss flying boat was featured in the September FineScale Modeler reader's gallery. Ken also brought in some flea market finds from Clarence. Ron Levy brought in a number of photos he took at various car shows. Art Martin brought his completed Vampire Mk 5. Doug Whitney showed some more of the reference books he has for his Frgate project. He needs swivel guns and deadeye rigging blocks from the Revell HMS Bounty kit, if anyone has any. Chris Boss showed off his 1/72 Phantom, nearing completion, as well as the interior for a 1/48 scale Avenger and a double kit of a 1/144 scale Hurricane. Phil Pucher brought his completed 1/35 scale PT-Boat along with a beautiful custom made display case. Treasurer Jim Elam had some magazines for sale and reminded everyone dues are coming up for the new year. George Harmston had several kits from Ukraine and the Czech Republic, all of which seem to have started out as ICM molds. John Groves brought the armor models he has been working on for the last several months, including an M40 based on Phil Pucher's construction article. He next plans to do a Tony in 1/32 scale using data from Armand's 1/48 scale build. Jim Brewer had 2 P-51 models, one of which he plans to enter in the Nationals. Al Glew mentioned progress of the Website and asked you to keep sending in material.
