January Meeting Highlights & February Announcement

January 15, 2015 at 11:59 pm | Blog | No comment


The main business of the January club meeting was taking photos of the club members wearing our club colors. Those photos can be seen below.

It was also decided that everyone should bring to the February meeting a list of 3-5 modeling techniques/procedures that they would like to see demonstrated at future club meetings. After compiling the list, we will see who in the club is willing and able to present demos on any of the requested subjects. Bernard will be doing his much postponed and eagerly awaited Bare Metal Foil demo during the February meeting.
