A great turn out for our post 4th of July meeting, about 35 members attended with 22 models on display. The 35 people attending included 3 new members:
1. Kevin Hetmanski enjoys building various truck models and will be opening a RC hobby shop in the near future. I’ll share more details as they become available.
2. Leigh Guarnier collects diecast and I am looking forward to seeing some of the items from his collection.
3. Tony Sciarrino builds mostly 1/43rd race cars and believe has some actual racing experience as well.
Welcome to ACME, we are glad you are part of our club.
Happy Birthday to the following folks celebrating birthday’s in July:
Pico Elgin, Jim Sheperd, Mike Hackey, Bob McAllan, Paul Wehner, John Gum, Eric Cole, and Leigh Guarnieri.
Bob Downie delivered the review of our joint build of Aoshima’s Lamborghini Huracan Performante. Bob did an excellent job of correcting the body flaws, laying down an awesome paint job, and fighting with several issues regarding the headlights, rear fascia, etc. My contribution included the chassis and engine, both of which were very easy and hassle free. Look for a full review on the website in sometime in July.
Four additional models were handed out for reviews at the October 2019 meeting.
Mike Crespi took additional pictures of many of the models on display during Show & Tell and will be adding these to an album on our website in the near future.
After the raffle Jim Sheperd did an incredible how to about adding working lights to models. He brought along a Camaro Indy pace car which has to be seen to be believed, I counted eight working LED’s in the light bar alone. Not sure how many total there are but it has to be close to 20. While there are multiple sources for LED products Jim likes Evan Designs based on there selection and in particular their customer service: Evan Designs
