    15. THEME PICS: Turning point of the war.

      November 1942 marked the turning point of Axis fortunes in World War II. In Africa, the Allied forces rout the Germans at the Second battle of El Alamein. Russian forced launch Operation Uranus, encircling Stalingrad and trapped an entire German army in the city. The Japanese thrust into the South Pacific is checked at Guadalcanal, where they lose several precious battleships and carriers.

      For this month, display any models that represent this period in history. Sherman tanks, American battleships, and even merchant forces use to ferry troops during Operation Torch or really any of the other major theaters of the war.

    • Can anybody confirm whether the A-4E/F had turkey feathers inside the tailpipe or not?  The Hasagawa kit pipe doesn't have them nor does the Steel Beach Accessories Super Foxtrot Update kit have them.  The Eduard A-4 Exhaust kit has them.  I have a number of photos that show most of the tail end of a Scooter but, the inside of tailpipe is partially obscured.
    • Nakajima Ki-44.  Eduard Cockpit PE, Eduard canopy mask, True detail resin wheels, WEM colourcoat, Testor model master lacquer spray semi-gloss.  
    • Nakajima Gekko.  Eduard Cockpit PE, Eduard canopy mask, True details resin wheels, WEM colourcoat enamel, .3mm lead pencil for panel lines, Testor model master lacquer spray semi-gloss.    
    • An additional Hospitality item is the Arizona Culinary Institute gourmet luncheon on Thursday. The price is $20, including the bus trip.  The registration logo is up on the "trips and tours" page on registration, and you CAN mail it in. Jim Pearsall Registrar.
    • Pete, The receipt is your confirmation of registration.  I get a copy of your registration, minus the credit card info, and that's what I use to enter the member in the system. Since I have to manually enter the information for the Registration System, I'm not going to send the 300+ emails for confirmation that you've already received. If there's a problem, I do contact the member, such as the one who registered for the ATK tour, but didn't register for the convention.  Jim Pearsall Regsitrar, 2018 Convention
