The Southern Maryland Scale Modelers meet every third Thursday of the month at 7:00 pm at High Tide Games, 22599 MacArthur Blvd, California, Maryland, (San Souci Plaza, between McKay's and Mission BBQ).

We are also meeting online via Zoom most Thursdays at 7pm -- an email is sent to members with meeting info.

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...

164: March 2017 Meeting Minutes

Another big crowd!  
21 members and 30 models.

Not much on the agenda, ODO was a great success.  Some guys took some metal home for some obviously very nice models.  The Monogram Big Bomber Build display was popular.  We got lots of visits and a couple of lesson's learned for the next display opportunity at NoVa's Model Classic:

  • Put a page with large print (14 font?) for each model near it to explain key differences from other similar models -- prop blurs (very popular), Navy B-26 (everyone who came up asked about its history).
  • One person from the club should be there at all times to answer additional questions.  Maybe rotate every hour for those who attend, at least for the morning hours.  

Steve was able to complete the A-3/A-5 Models for Ms Paula Pippin.  Her husband flew all 3 types in his career and she wants to pass them on to her grandson whose father played with them as a child.  They finished up great, but for some reason I don't have photos...
