  1. Hi Al, this is John Noack, President. I never received an email from you. If I didn't, odds are that Marie didn't either. I forwarded your comment on to her, and I'm sure she'll be back with you shortly. What can I do for you?
  2. I was contacted by this company as a result of the Chattanooga folks having reached out to them for raffle items. They are offering a discount to IPMS members on an extensive catalog of aviation, armor, marine and figure kits made in Bulgaria. The entry point for the discount is a bit steep but it includes free shipping, so if a Chapter were to get together and make a group order substantial savings could be realized. Here's their website: https://modelsvit-eshop.modelsvit-shop.com/en And the offer is as follows: 10% discount on retail prices on our web-shop + free delivery to USA – for orders above 500$; · 15% discount on retail prices on our web-shop + free delivery to USA – for orders above 720$; · 20% discount on retail prices on our web-shop + free delivery to USA – for orders above 1000$; John John Noack IPMS/USA First Vice President

  6. Dear IPMS/USA Member: As any member who has attended the past few Business Meetings at the National Convention could tell you, the Make and Take program has been an ongoing item of discussion in terms of cost and benefits to the Society. While the intent of MnT has always been to recruit new/young members, no correlation has been established between participation in a MnT and subsequent enrollments. In spite of this, the program was continued because of the local goodwill it was perceived to generate. However, recent changes by our suppliers of Make and Take kits have severely limited the selection of kits, placed restrictions on their distribution, and significantly increased our costs. In fact, for the past several years, these costs have averaged around $10,000 annually, or looking at it another way, almost 10% of your annual dues spent on what is at best generating local goodwill. These costs were simply too high for the benefits received and could no longer be justified because of the increasingly high costs to the Society. Due to these changes the Board has decided that IPMS/USA can no longer support the MnT program. While existing requests in the pipeline will be honored, no new requests will be accepted. We'd like to take this opportunity to thank Jim Brooks for all his hard work managing the MnT program for IPMS/USA. Jim told me tonight that the thing he'll miss the most about managing the program is the friends he made during the process. Thanks for your understanding in this matter, (for the Executive Board) John Noack, Director, Local Chapters
  7. Ed and MJ were dear personal friends of mine - even after I recruited them both to national positions. They were there for me in good times and bad, and even put me up at their home for a period of time when I was going through a divorce. I never heard MJ tell anyone "no" to a request - and sitting at the Nationals desk with her at many conventions, I heard some off the wall requests. MJ had been Ed's office manager in his aircraft brokerage business and continued to work at CAK after his passing - I'm sure she had as many friends and fans in the world of corporate aircraft as she did in IPMS. I mentioned to someone the other day that she was the kind of person who, if you knocked on their door at 2AM, would bring you in and cook you a meal. Their home was a gathering place for family and friends - many of whom they treated as extended family - and I will miss the many wonderful cookouts on their deck. When Dave called me with the news, I felt like I'd lost a family member. I'm sure Ed's smiling now, but I will miss her (and him) terribly. John Noack
  8. Yes, understood, that's why I specified a VH-34D in the post. But thanks.
  9. Hi all: I'm writing the IPMS/USA review for Gallery Models' 1/48 VH-34D Marine One. There are no interior color callouts for the presidential cabin. I found one color photo online (see attachment) of JFK boarding Marine One that shows a light color interior, darker floor, and some funky 60's era window curtains. Does anyone have access to some interior shots of this first version of Marine One? My online search has been less than successful. Thanks. John Noack IPMS/USA Life Member 23017
