August Meeting

At this month's meeting Roger Hartill gave us an excellent talk on the use of Milliput

Most of us have used the product at one time or another, with varying degrees of success but Roger covered a whole range of possibilities encompassing all aspects of the hobby from aircraft via armour to figures.

Even those people that have used Millput for a long time learned some new techniques or uses for the two part epoxy putty.

To illustrate his talk Roger brought along some examples of his own work, particularly impressive were the figures and busts that he modified or resculpted as can be seen from the photographs here.

The Forever Forties group have again invited us to attend Droitwich's annual Salt Day. We will be based in the town's Victoria Square, as last year, and any members are welcome to come along and exhibit there models - but please only 1940s/ WWII subjects. Those of us who attended last year had a thoroughly good day and was worth the visit for having a look at the vehicles on display if nothing else.

The monthly competition was won by Terry Walton with his 1/48 scale Hawker Hurricane Mk.I which achieved the remarkable score of 27 points out of 25!
