  1. Just wanted you all to know that IPMS/Gateway will present its 16th annual Invitational model contest and vendor swap meet on Saturday, September 10, 2022. The show will be at the Holiday Inn St. Louis SW--Route 66, 10709 Watson Road, St. Louis, MO 63127. Vendor set up is at 7:30 am, and the show runs from 9:00 am to approximately 3:00 pm. Show admission is $5 for adults and free for children ages 14 and under. Admission plus unlimited contest entries (accepted from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm) is $10 for adults and free for children ages 14 and under. The contest has 37 categories and ten "Best of" awards. A special category is "1942: The Hinge of Fate" (anything related to the year 1942). Besides vendors, there will be a raffle with proceeds going to the club. Trophy sponsorships are available. Show chairman Bill Wagner may be reached at 314.951.4936 or startechbill@gmail.com.

  2. I, along with many others, could not/hear the audio part of the start of last night's post-banquet presentation. I know Mike Mackowski (RC-10) won RC of the Yar, but who won for Chapter, Newsletter Editor, Webmaster, and Member of the Year? Please let me know. Thanks in advance. I got back to St. Louis this morning after an all-night drive back. Still a bit groggy, but otherwise fine. Had a great time in Omaha, God willing, I will see you all in San Marcos. Bob
  3. Just checked on sprayhammer.com regarding parts for my Grex Genesis xGi. It has stopped working lately and I am trying to replace parts on the body (such as the needle chuck). However, sprayhammer.com says the parts I am looking for are just one in stock right now. Anybody else have any problems getting Grex parts? Any other outlets I should look into? I really like this brush. Thanks in advance. Bob
  4. The second one does. The kit I got has decals for US variants. Thanks, Keith! Bob
  5. At a recent swap meet, I bought the Minicraft boxing of the Hasegawa 1:32 Boeing F4B-4 kit (JS-066:350). I opened it up to find two copies of the second sheet of instructions, which includes steps 1 through 13, plus the part drawing and part numbers. I have most of the instructions, but not all. Does anyone out there have this kit and can copy the other sheet of instructions for me? It would be most appreciated. Message me for contact info. Bob
  6. I bought a Fujimi 1:72 UH-1N kit recently at a swap meet, but it lacked instructions. Anyone out here who has that kit and can copy the instruction sheet for me? It would be most appreciated. Message me here for my contact info. Bob
  7. When does voting end for the E-Board candidates? I haven't found a date on the website. Thank you.
  8. Anyone here have any experience with packing models for air travel? I am thinking about flying to Las Vegas for this year's Nationals. Looking for tips in this area. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.
  9. I was an editor at Squadron/Signal Publications from early 1999 to early 2005, when Jerry Campbell dismissed me. I had good memories of Squadron Mail Order and the people who worked there. (While with Squadron/Signal, I helped proofread Mail Order's monthly flyers and annual catalog and helped with their semi-annual inventory.) I even ordered from them now and then. Most recently, I ordered two bottles of Vallejo paint from them last month, which arrived just days later in good order. I was aware of the problems Squadron has had in recent years, so the news of their apparent closing (temporarily?) really should not come as much of a surprise. I would agree with the comments about their website. They were slow to embrace the Internet and not very efficient when they did. Plus, I wondered what the point was of the collectables (die-cast models, plaques) they were selling. Not something a real scale modeling retailer would have on offer. In 2019, while in Liberty, Missouri for IPMS/West Central Missouri's contest, I was invited to visit the Sprue Brothers Models facility, which most impressed me with its efficiency and service. II have ordered from them on occasion (including last month) and would certainly order from them again if the need arose. While touring Sprue Brothers' warehouse, I mentioned to one of the principals there (I can't remember his name) that I had worked at Squadron, and he mentioned to me the problems they were having at the time (stock on hand, credit issues). I filed that note in my memory. It is sad to see Squadron go, but the same goes for Sears.
  10. Nick, thanks for getting back to me on this. Bob
  11. Can anyone help? I am wondering how to resize color templates from 1:350 scale to 1:400 scale for a ship model I am planning to work on. Specifically, I have the Heller 1:400 Gneisenau. If anyone here has any ideas, I would appreciate it. Thank you in advance.
