  1. Online Registration for the IPMS/USA National Convention will close end of day on July 15th.
  2. Yeah, I might have duplicated topics... been one of those weeks... Email both of us, just in case... I don't think I've ever seen a Fact Sheet, so I don't know what info is on it. I've added more info to the Chapter web pages over the years and I doubt its on the sheet. I have thought about providing access to the CC's to their Club pages... at the moment, I have a function that emails all the CC's to get them to update the page info. It's reasonably successful but I don't get replies from everyone. My concern is that instead of the DLC and I having to manage the pages, we'll end up managing the CC accounts and any Club pages where the CC does not want to do so.. It is doable but it's not something I'm going to tackle without significant fraction of the parties involved on board... Eric
  3. The DLC can update the Chapter info which is what feeds the calendar... Eric
  4. The one thing I probably cannot do is dealing with Chapters who have two different meeting times during a month, i.e. the second Tuesday at 7PM and the fourth Sunday at 2PM. I can list those on the Chapter page, but not within the Meeting Calendar view.... Eric
  5. Would anyone find this useful? https://calendar.ipmsusa3.org/chapter-meetings Eric
  6. Sometimes the renewal does, sometimes it does not. For the West MI Chapter, they have meetings on two separate days. I only had it set up for one date, i.e. first Monday of the month. I'm working on adding a second date and being able to display it on the calendar. Also, I have been emailing the Chapter Contacts after the renewal cycle to make sure the information on their page is correct. I need to do that again but I don't always get a reply from the CC... Eric
  7. Take a look at the current chapter page at: https://calendar.ipmsusa3.org/chapter/ipmswest-michigan If you see any other information that need to be updated or added (chapter logo, contact info, etc.), send it to me at webmaster@ipmsusa.org See http://calendar.ipmsusa3.org/chapter/ipmsspartanburg-scale-modelers for a Chapter page with a lot of info on it. E
  8. Would anyone out there be interested in a Chapter Meeting Calendar? https://calendar.ipmsusa3.org/chapter-meetings Eric
  9. There is a basic kit from Airfix >> https://hlj.com/product/ARFJ6020 There is a resin kit of the Chiron >> https://www.hiroboy.com/124_Bugatti_Chiron_Full_Resin_Kit--product--12068.html
  10. Look in https://forum.ipmsusa3.org/forum/77-special-offers/ Eric
  11. Eric, Your Change of Address request was sent through... Eric
  12. I worry about the venture capital bit... Toys R Us was bought out that way back in 2005. And then ended up with $5 Billion in debt. As I understand it, sometimes these buyouts are a method of transferring debt from one asset to another - although that may not have been the case with Toys R Us. Anyway... Eric
  13. I talked to tech support so now the Category pages have an "Add to Cart" link..
  14. Just so the link is here - the Nats page is located at: http://www.shopipmsusa.org/category-s/106.htm Eric
  15. They can add images to posts... there is a Gallery add-on to the Forum software which is an extra fee, but it might be worth getting. Eric
  16. Some IPMS/USA web sites will be updated today for a security issue. The sites are the Reviews site and the Calendar/News/Member site. They will go offline around noon and should be back online before 4PM Eastern Time. Eric
  17. Horizon Hobby agrees to make $18.8M bid for Hobbico units http://www.news-gazette.com/news/local/2018-03-24/horizon-hobby-agrees-make-188m-bid-hobbico-units.html but its only the RC unit.
  18. https://web.archive.org/web/20171112141547/http://www.scalemodelindex.com was the last active page... Tony email - tonym@scalemodelindex.com E
  19. There is also a Magnifier setting in the Accessibility section and a Magnifying widget for the Command Center. Both are part of iOS 11. Eric
  20. I've 'known' Matt Wells for quite a long time - he was one of the earliest sponsors for F1M.com - and while I've only actually run into him a few times in real life, he's always been a great promoter of scale modeling, especially F1 models. Scale Motorsport will be missed... Eric
  21. Yeah I have the big E kit too. Have not started it. But the D7 may be something to dive into. E
  22. From Round 2 http://www.collectormodel.com/round2-models/4286-star-trek-model-kits-all-new-1350-ktinga-model-kit/#sthash.DOKEpVsB.dpbs
  23. The Forum has a new feature called Clubs. Its a little mini-forum that members can create which can be private or public. Take a look at: https://forum.ipmsusa3.org/clubs/ If you have any questions, let me know. Eric
