News, News, News for August!

We have a big meeting coming up on August 8.  We will be having another program on airbrushing.  I know some of you are experienced airbrushers, but some of our members have not yet taken up the art of airbrushing.  We will have a few different types of airbrushes for you to try and get some firsthand practice with this tool.

We picked up a new member at last month’s meeting.  Larry Schmidt mentioned that he does not use an airbrush and he has very good luck brush painting.  Maybe we can schedule Larry for an upcoming program so he can show the members how he gets his results brush painting.  Unfortunately, Larry will miss the August meeting.

We also want to point toward the upcoming IPMS-Gateway show in St. Louis on September 14.  I will have some details on the show at this meeting.  Our club meeting in September is on the 12th.  I will have model entry forms for the members who plan to take models to this show.  These shows are great for our club.  We get exposure to the other clubs.  We get to see what other modelers are doing and we can ask questions about their techniques.  We get an opportunity to help with judging, and knowing what the judges are looking for in a contest model, is invaluable in guiding our modeling efforts.  Lastly, there is the vendor rooms and all the bargains to be found.

The tentative program for the September meeting is using Bare Metal Foil.  We will need volunteers to help with demonstrations.  Please, let me know what other topics you would like to see on upcoming programs.  We can always learn from each other.

See you all Thursday,
