Only 15 members attended, 1 of which was NEW MEMBER Stu Didsbury. We did have 21 models to talk about, so that was great!
Only business to discuss was the upcoming 2016 Biplanes & Triplanes air show at Virginia Beach on Sat/Sun 1-2 October. Also the Tidewatercon 16 will be held Fri/Sat. Note that if you go on Saturday, you'll pay the $25 air show fee to see the model show...
Just a reminder of the Club's group build efforts ongoing:
- Big Bomber Build -- Monogram or Revell 1/48 bomber group build. Members are looking to display their finished kits at MauraderCon 2016 on 19th November.
- Yellow Wings Squadron -- For May 2017 Yellow Wings group build -- Members are building the Monogram 1/72 F11C-2 using some custom decals by Starfighter-Decals to create a full squadron of 18 aircraft in all 6 section colors. Hopefully donate these to the Museum when completed.
- VF-11 Tophatters Display -- for the Museum, one model of each aircraft from beginning to today. Most should be done, awaiting confirmation from the Museum for the display space.
- Battle of the Atlantic Display -- for the Museum, a display similar to their Battle of Midway display that highlights Naval Aviation's role; awaiting confirmation from the Museum for the display space. And my PB4Y-1 still isn't finished...
