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.

IV Warsaw Fiesta Modelarska lasted two days. I had a very marvelous time and met many interesting people. All of the models were crafted with utmost care and skill. You can view these models in the both the gallery and video that I prepared. I would also like to invite anybody who is interested, to drop by the two modelling stores that I visit during my stay in Warsaw.

Local aviation author and friend of IPMS Toronto is pleased to announce the availability of his newest book: Fighting Cockpits. Stay tuned for information regarding a seminar that Donald will deliver at an upcoming IPMS Toronto meeting this year!
“Climb inside the cockpits of the world’s most famous military aircraft from World War I, World War II to the present day!
What was it like to sit in the pilot’s seat and take control of a P-51 Mustang in World War II? What about an F-14 Tomcat at the height of the Cold War? Or a Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor today? The cockpits of these fighter and bomber aircraft are revealed in Fighting Cockpits. Showcasing more than 50 of the world’s most famous combat cockpits from early World War I aircraft to present-day fighters, this book includes more than 200 rich color photos from photographer Dan Patterson, as well as detailed history about combat cockpit development from aviation expert and historian Donald Nijboer.”
