SDMB members at ModelZona 2015
OUR SIMPLE MISSION...LET'S BUILD!
in January 2010, Sonoran Desert Model Builders is
a chartered IPMS model club in Tucson, Arizona dedicated to advancing
each others skills through tip sharing, encouragement and, most
importantly, hands-on building. Our members enjoy a deep camaraderie and
level of respect for each other as well as a passion for model
building. We want YOU to join our
friendly group! Check out our Members page and see what we build and
what we are working on. Come to our meeting and see what we are all
about, we won't bite. We build it all... cars, airplanes, armor, ships,
sci-fi...if it's a plastic kit we build it! (We even build non-plastic
WE WANT YOU
We also had a great presentation by Kenneth F. Schanke who detailed his USAF navigator career flying in B-57s (collecting samples of nuclear detonation clouds in the South Pacific and elsewhere!), F-4's, C-130's and other aircraft. With over 5,600 hours flying time, his talk was loaded with detailed information - Thanks Ken for the interesting presentation! Ken's book "Pigeons to Peshawar" detailing his extensive flying career was also available for purchase and signing and is available on Amazon.com.
35 SDMB members were in attendance by my count!! Now, on to the models and pictures of another great meeting...Enjoy!
Our first Scorpfest model contest was a resounding success! Over 140 models were entered in our contest! The ModelMania swap meet was superb as usual with all tables used! Chinese food by Jane's Rolling Wok did take a little of the modelers money away but renewed their energy to go back in and keep shopping!
Many thanks to all that made this event a success!
