December Meeting 2017

Hey hey, the last S scale meeting for 2017 was a real show with close to (if not over) 40 members in attendance. Some great examples of modelling was on display and a bit of christmas cheer was generously provided by Trevor Burke, thank you. We also got a visit from Santa which was very unexpected. Apologies for the lack of photos tonight, for me it has been a long day but if I don't do this now, I won't remember in the morning so I apologise in advance if I miss captioned or didn't credit someone where credit is due. I'd like to take this opportunity to wish all of you a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy Hanukkah, etc. and a Great New Year. Safe travels for those travelling over the break and I look forward to what new and exciting modeling has been done during the holidays at the January 2018 meeting. For now I'll leave you with some photos from tonight's meeting to provide you with inspiration. Take care.
