Wow! I was pooped when I posted that photo of the Women!

Since you ask, on the left is Joyann Parker. If you are into the Blues, do yourself a HUGE favor and give her first CD "Joyann Parker and Sweet Tea, On the Rocks" a listen. Joyann's vocals and musical talents will surely carry her to the very top of the music Biz. She just plain KILLS IT!

On the right is one of my most treasured Woman-friends, Sherry Conolly in her summer wine-sipping garb. She is in the running for the role of IPMS Plastic Surgeons nurse. :drool Raffle tickets might fairly fly from the roll!

It is as intricate and detailed as we have come expect from Don! It looks like these Guys have been here for a while, and expect to remain there.

Club President Barry Rolow built this cool Gundam Universe 1/35 scale MBT.

Ron Huntimer brought a couple of G-scale 1/24 scale Buildings to add to his Garden Railroad modular section. I think he said Pola, a Germany company made them. They look pretty stout.

Ron also had an aging Gem.

Nathan Stevens, is running his 1/72 Assembly line again. This time we are treated to 3 Lockheed P/F-80 Shooting Star fighters. 2 Old Airfix, and the newer Sword kit! Nate says the Sword resin wheel bays fit nice, and look good! :rockon The Alclad is on, and the 2 wheels-up Airfix P-80's will be "What-if" late WWII jets.

Joe Lotz is working on a big really crappy Russian Truck and a Meng 1/35 Gepard. (I always did have a fondness for the Gepard) Joe's concerned about the tires for his Truck.

Ross looks concerned as well!

Menbers in attendance!

I drove my car tonight, so I brought a bunch of castings so the Surgeons could see what I've been up to. I realize the 1/700 isn't everybody's Thing. I was well pleased the the compliments I received about detail & quality of the castings. I take a lot of pride in my workmanship. OH! The 1/350 Great White was a big hit!

That's all for now! Thanks for looking in!

I've always thought it would be neat to get those railroad kits just as a weathering subject. Looks like a good meet!
:thumbsup

I always thought Ron Huntimer looked a little like a more mature George Armstrong Custer. :hmmm :idonno
His Garden railroad stuff is outdoors 3 seasons of the year. The "weathering" is caused by Weather!!
I confessed my desire to strafe his lay-out aloud once. :bat All I need now is a 1/24 scale Tomcat!

The food was pretty good. The Service was better this time than the last. A fine time was had. The gift exchange was filled with new issues and some old classic kits. NO Heller 1/48 Mirage III's showed their ugly heads this year! :rotf

Almost all the Lady Surgeons came to the Party this year! Mrs. O'Leary was absent as was her bovine fire-bug, so the Restaurant is safe for another year>

My Christmas gift was the AMT Piranha Super Spy car model kit. The car from "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." TV series. (Let's see how old you are!)

3 of our members, Don Barry, Joe Lotz & Kevin Nelson built 1/48 scale Doolittle Raid B-25's to honor the 3 Iowa natives that were on the Doolittle Raid in 1942. These built Mitchell model kits will find their way to the Iowa Aviation Museum, near Guthrie Center, as donations to honor these Men.

For myself, it is my great pleasure to present the third USS Hornet CV-8 Doolittle Raid 70th Anniversary Cap to Kevin Nelson. Honoring the Iowa Men, who honor the Iowa Men whom flew & fought for Liberty so many years ago.


I bought these Caps from the Ship's store with this intention in mind, last May when I visited USS Hornet, CVS-12 in San Francisco.

My Mission is now complete. Kevin seemed well pleased!
