  • Hi everyone,

  • The next meeting for the Ft. Crook IPMS Chapter is  Wednesday, July 21st, 630 PM, at the Natural Resources District Headquarters Building at Wehrspann Lake. 

    For you Russian jet lovers, we will finally have our MiG contest sponsored by Max Whitaker. So any MiG from Warsaw Pact countries (Polish, Czech, etc.)  is eligible. 

    We will also have a raffle.  Shaun has some great kits for the raffle this month.

    Randy will be giving a demonstration on using pencils for weathering and highlighting. So come on out and watch a great demo using those AK Weathering pencils or other color pencils.

    We will also have a hot wash of this year’s Omacon.  We had a good turnout and great teamwork from all of the Fort Crook club members.  We made around $1000.  The raffle was spectacular and thanks for everyone’s great donations to it.  Now our attention will be focused on hosting the national contest next July.

    If you have a works in progress, bring it.

    A couple events are coming up where we will have a model display.  The first is Aviation Stem Day at Millard Airport on Sept.4th.  If you interested in participating in this, let me know. The second is Nukecon, September 24,-26, 2021  at the Mid-America Center in Council Bluffs.

    Next month’s meeting (Aug.18) falls during the National Contest. We will have a discussion on what to do for tha, since some of us will be in Las Vegas.
