  1. Here are some more pictures that are on display celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Hampton Roads Ship Model Society: Here are some pictures of our ship modeling booth that is located in the Mariners' Museum:
  2. That was a nice article by the Eagle Tribune. Looking at the picture, it looks like the Club has some talented model builders.
  3. Here is the last batch of pictures. I took more pictures, but they turned out blurred. I will re-take them and post them on this topic at a later date. Please check out our website at http://www.hrsms.org and if you are in the Tidewater area of Virginia on the second Saturday of each month, please come and visit one of our meetings.
  4. The Hampton Roads Ship Model Society is celebrating its 50th Anniversary in 2017. Formed in 1967, the HRSMS meets every second Saturday at 10:00 am at the Mariners Museum. To celebrate our 50th anniversary, the Mariners Museum is displaying over 50 models built by its members. This display will run for approximately six months. Here is a link to the Mariners' Museum HRSMS 50th Anniversary Exhibit. Here is an ad that ran in the Daily Press earlier this week: Here are some pictures of the reception that the Mariners' Museum held for the HRSMS members and their guests. Howard H. Hoege, III, President and CEO of the Mariners' Museum was the guest speaker. Here is the exhibit room and some of the models on display: Here is a picture of our 50th Anniversary cake and cupcakes that were served at our annual banquet held in March: I will be posting more pictures of the ship models on display built by our members. Here is a link to another topic on our Club: Hampton Roads Ship Model Society
  5. Rob, I believe the $5 admission gets you in to see the models and the vendors. I know the $40 registration fee gets you in to see the models on display and the vendors, a buffet lunch, which has a speaker, access to the demonstrations, registration for your models, which includes an information card for each model entered and ballots to vote for the ships in the several ship model classes. If you are close by, you should try to attend. I Have been going since 2010 and it is definitely worth the trip from Virginia. You will not be disappointed.

    I am sad to hear this. My condolences to his family and friends. He will be missed.
  9. Thank you Kurt for being Chairman of the NRG for the last three years. And congratulations to Mitch in his new role as Chairman of the NRG. I know he will do great in his new position. Also, thanks Kurt and Toni for your involvement on MSW. I always look forward to both of your posts.
  10. Thanks Charlie for the information. I am looking forward to this Conference and Show. It is a great event for everyone that attends.

  11. Alexander. Your carvings are beautiful and you have a nice collection of tools. I have enjoyed your log on carving and I look forward to seeing more.

    I got this adapter from Lowes for my Byrnes Saw. It works great attaching my shop vac to my Byrnes saw.
  13. Bob, I tried on a pair of these eyeglasses at a Walgreens Pharmacy and found them to be better than any of my prescription eyeglasses. I am constantly taking off my eyeglasses or looking over the lenses when I am looking at something that is not close to me. With the Foster Grant glasses, I can see distant objects fine without having to take them off. And the price is about 15% of what I paid for my current eyeglasses.
