Starting in October, we will be having mini clinics on subjects that might interest you for example:

October mini clinic           will be on air brushing. I will bring my air compressor and air brush for hands on learning

November mini clinic      will be on 3D printing. VEMO will bring their 3D printer and make stuff for us right during our Pizza Box assembly clinic.

December mini clinic       will be on building model N scale cars kits. I have several donated and we need to build them!!

January mini clinic            will be on coupler change outs. Changing between various styles of couplers so you can run many cars on the same trains.
