July 2015 Meeting Notes

July 17, 2015 McKinstry Meeting
Theme: Inline Engines

Weeeelllll… Not such a great meeting this time around. Chalk it up to everyone going to the IPMS National Convention in Ohio.

A short show-n-tell for the evening; the theme was inline engines for which Mike Hanlon provided five P-40’s in various types. Plus John Koziol brought along his 1/24 Airfix Mosquito and one of the most beat all to hell and gone models we have seen in a long time. He wouldn’t claim it as his own mentioning it caught his eye at the Glenview Museum where he purchased it. He didn’t know what it was for sure, nor the manufacturer. However, the Tick did a bit of research: It is a Bf-109 F-4 perched on top of a Mistel 1/JU-88. Kit by Italeri 1/72nd scale. The meeting adjourned about 30 minutes early and then it was off to Buffalo’s to “talk it up” with several members and make fun of those who weren’t there.. Just kidding.. Well, mostly kidding…
