SDMCC Meetings are Returning

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

Our next meeting will be May 18th at 7PM. The Automotive Museum is opening again, and we can now meet there. Masks will be mandatory, and we will be social distancing. Full vaccinations are recommended. The meeting will be held in the larger reception area on the south end of the building. Use the usual entrance, but instead of going straight, turn left when you get to the top of the stairs. We'll have plenty of tables so bring your quarantine builds. 

 

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/
