The Southern Maryland Scale Modelers meet every third Thursday of the month at 7:00 pm. We currently meet at the NSi, 21513 Great Mills Road, Lexington Park, Maryland.

Everyone is welcome, all we ask is that you bring a project, finished or not, theme or non-theme to share during our Show-N-Tell discussion. Okay, you don't really have to bring a project...

132: Show and Tell/In Progress

The theme for the April meeting was "Double Secret Amnesty", which was any finished build that had been lingering in your build pile for a long time.  There was one theme build, five completed builds, and three in progress builds.  In addition, Scott Samo gave a very informative demonstration on how he airbrushes his models.

Theme build


 Cessna 152
By Joe Hegedus
1:48 Minicraft
Interior detailed with belts, throttle, and control lock.  Exterior was converted from the Cessna 150 Aerobat configuration to a 152 by deleting the overhead windows, moving the landing light from the wing to the nose, modifying the cowl for the new landing light and inlet, changing the exhaust, and adding the drooped wingtips.  The markings were printed on inkjet paper, and represent the airplane that Joe soloed in on 31 Dec 1981.
