November and December Meetings 2018

Posted by Peter Sutton, Wednesday, 14th November 2018 @ 2:45pm

  • Reminder to all members that the NOVEMBER meeting is the annual competition.  Please bring models along that have won their class at one of the January 2018 to October 2018 meetings.

    Please get to the meeting early, and place you model on the tables promptly, as we have a busy evening of judging, and the competition secretary needs extra time to tot up all the scores and announce the winners on the night.

     
    Please can all 2017 Trophy winners return the Trophies to the competition secretary at the November meeting.

     
     
    The December meeting is the Christmas Social and Award ceremony.   Please bring along the models that have won their class at the November meeting!

     

    The two memorial awards will run at the December meeting:

    • The Edgar Brooks Memorial trophy for the  best Spitfire model – so please bring along any Spitfires.

     

    • The Christmas Plate – this year the theme is “100”, so we look forward to a diverse array of models on this theme.

Donation of large collection of Plastic Model kits to the Club

Posted by Peter Sutton, Wednesday, 17th May 2017 @ 2:10pm

  • Everyone at the Club is very grateful to Mark Iwaszko of Marlow Bottom.  Mark  kindly donated his late  father's very large collection of classic plastic kits to the club. His father, Bish Iwaszko, was a keen collector and modeler, who used his modeling skills in a professional capacity,  running a company called Miltra (Military Training), who produced scale recognition and familiarisation models for the British Army. 

     The photos shows just some of the large selection of kits being selected by club members.  Many Thanks to Mark - the kits will be enjoyed by members of the club for many years to come!
