At the May 2018 IPMS Toronto meeting, member John Maher gave a fantastic presentation about how he used aircraft modelling techniques when he branched out to building armour models.
As usual, Robert Wlodarek was present to record the seminar and we’re happy to show it to you here.
If you’ve attended an IPMS Toronto meeting or a Greater Toronto contest in the past couple of years, there’s a good chance you’ve met Colin Arthurs, our youngest active club member.
Gates Bisson recently met with Colin to talk to him about his interest in our hobby, and to gain some insights into how we can attract more young people to the world of scale modeling.

A reminder to members that John Maher will be running his presentation at tonight’s May meeting due to some logistical issues which prevented us from doing it in April.
“In his last presentation, IPMS Toronto member John Maher talked about applying armour techniques to aircraft. If you missed it, you can refresh your memory with another look at his seminar here.
In this upcoming session, John will talk about applying aircraft techniques to armour. He will present how he used aircraft building techniques to assemble the stowage on this Korean War Pershing. He’ll also review the painting and weathering techniques employed to create the finish on this model.”
In today’s video, Dave Forest and Dave Browne discuss some of the techniques they use when composing their dioramas. These techniques aren’t limited to armour – there’s something here for everyone to learn from. VIdeo is courtesy of Robert Wlodarek.
Set some time aside this weekend as you’ll want to be sure to watch every part of this fascinating series of how to videos by Dave Browne as he take us through the techniques that he uses for modelling groundwork. Video is courtesy of Robert Wlodarek.
One of the premier model shows and contests held in Ontario each year, Heritagecon topped itself again this March with record numbers of contest entries and vendors. Robert Wlodarek was onsite again and captured the show on video and in photos below.
