That was fun! Lots of folks and the pizza was great.
21 Modelers met at our new meeting location at High Tide Games. We had 20 models on the tables and 7 carrier landing models.
Three new members signed up!
As a group we brought another of our COVID Theme Builds -- Not-a-German Bf-109 1/48. The monthly theme was Anniversary. This month marks the 22nd Anniversary of the Southern Maryland Scale Modelers! We had 4 people confirm they made that first meeting at Charlotte Hall. Sometimes the only person at some of those early meetings was our then-President and founder: Chuck Conner.
Carrier Landings was a lot of fun. Even our host, Rebecca gave it a try and accomplished a great "landing". Link to the video of the carrier landings.
Pictures of the models that attempted/made landings:

Modelers on the zoom call: 21
Models discussed: 15
Tools & tips:
We discussed an alternative to Milliput 2-part moldable epoxy -- JB Weld Waterweld from any hardware store. I tried it on my Buccaneer to replace my canopy with something solid and it does work just as well. A bit harder, but it works well.

Okay, technically our first real meeting since the pandemic began and hoo boy did we had a lot of COVID builds to bring!
22 Modelers met at our new meeting location at High Tide Games (thanks Rebecca!) and there were
67 models on the tables!
As a group we brought our first COVID Theme Build -- 357th FG Mustangs in 1/48. The monthly theme was Desert Storm 30th Anniversary. Whitey's S-3B with folded wings got the most votes -- so he got the bragging rights and some new #11 blades and sanding sticks for his efforts.
