Models and Modeling Discussion:​

Mac Gilbert had his finished and mounted M3A1 Stuart. The base is an unfinished jewelry box he got at Hobby Lobby.

Jim Schofield had his finished and mounted Tamiya Challenger II. He used Tamiya Sand for the paint scheme.

Dave Oswalt brought in two in progress models. The Tamiya S-35 with individual track links used for the tread and a Dragon Panhard. Both were painted with Tamiya paints.

Mike Whone had two models. His in-progress Tamiya Panther that has the base coat applied and his almost finished Dragon Jadpanther with Zimmerit. It was painted with Tamiya Dark Yellow, NATO Green and NATO Brown. He used Eureka tow cables on the Jadpanther.

Randy had his finished and mounted Ming German Minen Runner. He used a dark grey paint scheme and heavily weathered it so it appears to have been sitting a while.

Alan had his in-progress MaxxPro Panda.

Mike Wolf had several 1/72 scale vehicles including 2 Trumpeter T-62 variants, a Trumpiter ISU-152, a Revell Germany T-55 and a Zvsda T-15 Armata. He also had two in-box models.
