May 16, 2020Multi Mini Clinics

May will be the start of our multi mini clinics. We will have one on using an air brush with Blaine Holbrook and two others going on simultaneously. Rotating every thirty minutes or so. Stay tuned for more information.

 

 


I am asking all in the division what they might like to see in the way of clinics. Hands on, video presentations, scenery ideas, DCC, weathering, trestle construction, tunnel portal and snowshed construction, just to name a few ideas. In our division we have a lot of beginners, advanced, and a lot of great modelers, we can all become better by sharing our ideas and talents. Join in with us each month for some fun and adventures in modeling.
