SDMCC Meetings are on Hold

Submitted by admin on Sat, 07/25/2020 - 13:23

At this point, we do not know when it will be safe to hold in-person meetings. If we've learned anything in this pandemic, it's that model building is a good hobby to have. We hope you'll keep building! It's been an excellent activity for most of us, and we'll look forward to seeing you all when we can do so safely. 

We're still sending out newsletters via email. Send pictures of your builds to Bruce Snyder, and we'll all get to see them. 

In the meantime, stay safe and healthy. 

 

A Very Comprehensive Kit Catalog

Wondering about some of the kits in you stash? Tim Shipley found a site with an extremely comprehensive listing of all types of plastic model kits. It will also help you manage your inventory. Just poking around, I found some interesting stuff I never knew existed. So, even if you don't have some mystery kit, it's a fun place to visit. 

The site is ScaleMates, and can be found at https://www.scalemates.com/kits/
