February Meeting and a Recommended Model Kit

The Flattie is a small kit from the classic ship model manufacturer Corel of Italy. It’s an often overlooked kit, as ship modelers tend to eye square-rigged warships, or other popular subjects. But, one local ship model club has recommended this kit as a decent beginner’s kit, and will be using it as an introductory kit for their new ship modeler members.

They will be building an example kit and posting photos and notes as they go. We’ll be sure to share them here, so stay tuned!

Hyde Street Pier Model Shipwrights

After dealing with some scheduling issues due to looming government shutdowns, the Hyde Street Pier Model Shipwrights managed a nice, normal meeting on February 17, the first meeting of the year. We had 8 members attending, which is pretty good for this group. We agreed that we need to bring in more ship modelers, as only about 3 attending members have been actively ship modeling in recent months.

Still, it was one of the most productive meetings we’ve had in some time. We also managed to replace the dehumidifier tubs in the big square-rigger model’s case. Being on the bay, we need to do this periodically to help keep these display models in good condition.
