April meeting and site updates

It is that time again. This Saturday we’ll be meeting at the home of the MoB – the Eastwood Centre – Central Ballarat.

In addition I’ve finished uploading the 2018 newsletters, including the current one if you have not received a copy from our Editor.

I expect to see you there on Saturday, and hope to retrieve my hat from the hatnapper, and not have to hand over a million dollars.

Otherwise, I’ll be adding a page for the collection of said Millions of dollars for the freedom of my hat. See you there.

Panzer III – Owners’ Workshop Manual (7/10)

Originally published on my reading blog. Of interest to those on the MoB list.

A Library Companion

For the modeller and historian this book will provide great appeal. However, there are some issues with the photos and captions in the book that left me often perplexed and sometimes stumped.

That aside though, there is a wealth of detail for the modeller especially with highly detailed photos of this particular WW2 panzer.

The history of its development, deployment and upgrade, including timelines for upgrades and changes, make this a worthwhile purchase to those interested specifically in modelling the tank. The history included covers the political and army maneuverings as well as the industrial angle of the development.

In all a thoroughly interesting and highly readable, accessible and useful book.

Newsletter uploads, annual show flyer and first 2018 meeting

It is a new year, and the first MoB meeting is on this Saturday 3rd February 2018. Hard to believe that one twelfth of the new year is gone.

I’ve been very committed to work and have had little time to do updates to the site (my bad).

However, today I uploaded the last of the 2017 newsletters, and the first 2018 newsletter. Additionally I’m in the process of updating the annual show information for the upcoming April show. So keep an eye out for that too.

All the best and I’ll see you at the club meeting tomorrow night.

You guessed it, that time of the month again. Time for a MoBster meeting at the new location, Eastwood Centre in Ballarat Central.

Same bat time, and same bat channel.

See you there.

Last meeting before the show! 5th August 2017

So, unless you’ve lived under a rock for the last few weeks, or otherwise been in the modelling boondocks, you’ll have noticed that there is a modelling show this coming Sunday in Ballarat.

Before we get there though there’s the chance to come and hang out at the club’s new meeting rooms at the Eastwood Centre (right behind Woolies and Coles on Dana Street).

Plenty of parking, warmth, tea and coffee, friendship and a fresh and raring to go committee. So come along and hang out with your fellow modellers for the evening. Meeting starts at around 7.30-ish, runs for some time and there’ll be lots of talk, and fun.

See you there.
