May 2013 Meeting
Our May 2013 meeting will be at the Cutler Realty on Monday, May 20 at 6:30 p.m. Our normal monthly business/topics will be discussed.
We have a Theme Contest scheduled for this month, ‘Build What You Normally Don’t”, ie. Armor guys build other than Armor, Aircraft guys build other than aircraft, etc. – sponsored by John Shimek. There will also be a non-theme contest as well.
The next several months meetings will have a Theme Contest scheduled. Here is a heads up on June’s Theme – “Battle of Britain, 1939 – Dec. 7, 1941; sponsored by Larry Davis.
Hope to see you there and if you know someone interested in the hobby, invite them along.
We have had several shows/contests in the area sponsored by sister IPMS Chapters – Three Rivers Pittsburgh and the Region 4 Convention in Dayton hosted by IPMS Wright Field Scale Modelers. Several of our Fame Cities members attended, competed and did extremely well at these shows. Congratulations and Well Done to all !
