Member Profile: Colin Arthurs

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.

May Meeting Reminder

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.”
