  1. Embassy does not have a shuttle for the Amtrak station. Your best bet is UBER, a cab, or similar transportation system.
  2. And don't overlook Black's BBQ and Hays County BBQ, both in San Marcos. Hays County is just a mile or so from the Convention Center.
  3. Eric has most likely identified the issue. Either the clubs have not updated their profiles via Wild Apricot or those chapters are no longer registered as IPMS chapters.
  4. Benefits - Your chapter will be listed on the IPMS website (assuming you've completed the Chapter Charter process) and that helps interested modelers locate chapters in their areas. The Regional Coordinator can help you to plan and execute your annual chapter contest, should your group decide to host one. Possessing a chapter charter allows your chapter to apply for insurance coverage of the type of event described above. In short, being a chartered chapter (literally) puts you on the map.
  5. Can't see the eyes very well ("see" what I did there?) but it looks good to me!
  6. MODELFIESTA 40 UPDATE Jan 8, 2022 New Braunfels Civic/Conference Center-New Braunfels, Tx Please share with your members. Pre-Registration for model entries is now underway. Pre-Registering your contest entries will significantly reduce your “time in line” on the day of the event. It’s a simple process. Go to alamosquadron.com and navigate to “ModelFiesta 40”, and then “Registration”. The Pre-Registration forms can be downloaded and there is additional information concerning submission of the forms via email. THIS JUST IN! Tamiya is sponsoring the Armor Class and also is sponsoring an Individually Sponsored Award for “Best Tamiya Model”. Remember that the entrant must “log in” any model eligible for an ISA (Individually Sponsored Award) in a folder at the Theme/ISA Station (There will be signs!) The Vendor Area continues to grow as each week more tables are reserved. If you are interested in vending at ModelFiesta 40 you can find information about how to reserve a table on the Alamo Squadron website. ( alamosquadron.com) Please feel free to contact alamosquadron@gmail.com if you have any questions.
  7. Thanks Eric. And I assume that those who have been chosen to serve will take office on Nov 1?
  8. I thought that there was a deadline of Sept 15th for votes to be received either by the online voting system or by paper ballots being sent to the IPMS Office Manager's address. Checking today I see no note that voting has been closed, and in fact, the message on the Online Voting System link shows it is still open. What is the deadline date? When will the results be announced? And I assume that, as in the recent past, the newly elected will take office on Nov 1. Is that correct?
  9. I consider the price of the Raffle tickets to be a "contribution" to the financial success of the event. I don't expect the host club to take any action on my behalf. I enjoyed the event and plan on attending the event next year. Called Stevens Int., which is the importer for Trumpy kits. The staffer with whom I spoke said that Stevens did not have any replacement parts for this particular kit due to its age. She also asked where I bought the kit. I wasn't going to lie to her so I told her that it was a raffle item at a local show. She said that Stevens replaced parts, if supplies were on hand, when the kit was purchased from a hobby shop, etc. I hoping I'll come across someone who has that part and is willing to "part" (play on words) with it. I'll start construction anyway..... perhaps I can vacuform a replacement....but if not, then a "tarp" will be modeled and draped over the windscreen. I'll still have the enjoyment of building the kit. All is well.
  10. I recently won a Raffle prize....the Trumpeter 32nd TBM-3 Avenger. Wow! Nice! When I returned home from the show where I won the kit I found that the windscreen was cracked into two pieces. If you happen to have this kit and, perhaps the part inventory is not complete, or there is damage to parts other than the windscreen, you might consider reaching out to me regarding your mint condition windscreen, or even the entire runner for the clear parts. I really, Really, REALLY don't want to attempt to vacuform a replacement.
  11. "Howdy" from Texas, Rudolfo! Hope you can make it to the Vegas show this summer.
  12. Thanks Dave. I'll give them a chance to wake up and get to work (or their workspace at home) and contact them.
  13. When will the list of candidates for all offices be posted on the IPMS Forum? That would allow members to ask questions of the candidates When will voting begin? When does voting close?
  14. I need to replace the windscreen, part #24 on the Trumpeter 32nd TBM-3 Avenger kit, kit # 2234. Any suggestions?
  15. This is the old Academy 32nd scale Nieuport 17. Not a very good kit, and certainly not one of my better efforts, but it was an enjoyable build.
  16. Can someone provide the name of the hotel/convention center which served as home base for the 2006 Convention in K.C.?
