Hackers compromise credit card details.

Both Hannants and Hobby Search have had clients' credit card details stolen by hackers.

Hannants' website has up-dates of the latest situation which appear as soon as you log into their home page. Hobby Search's  website has a separate information page giving details of the theft of information.

If you have made purchases from either of these companies it would be advisable to check your credit/debit card accounts for any suspicious activity.

October Meeting

Sunday 17th October was the date for the pre Scale Modelworld  club meeting. As ever, most of the membership will be attending and we expect to put on a display of a wide variety of models. This year being the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Britain many of the club and SIG displays will be commemorating the campaign.

This month's competition had only only one entrant, George Green's SE.5A in Russian markings - leading to humourous comments that it still didn't win - which needless to say it did.

Although the competition was sparsely supported a number of members brought along models that they have recently finished or are currently working on, including Steve Newton with a scratch built rowing boat and a tugboat built (Unusually for Steve) from a kit.

The next club meeting will be on Sunday 21st November 9 (A week after SMW) and will be our AGM, so if any members want to stand for committee posts please make yourselves known.

Meanwhile enjoy Scale Modelworld, we hope to see you at Telford.
