It Looks Like a New Article

Image
Some time ago, I sent off an article for Military Miniatures in Review. It was an article on finishing the Young Miniatures Waffen SS bust. I spied this cover shot of the latest MMIR- soon to be out. The article is mentioned on the cover-about halfway down on the left.

The California Show- SCAHMS

I just returned from Orange and the annual SCAHMS show. Another great show. There were some very good work on display. John Rosengrant had a great small vignette of an M5 with a squad taking fire, and a Revolutionary mounted soldier. I met Youn Song who goes by "Ebroin"; he is a sculptor and painter from Korea. He does masters for Young Miniatures. He brought his MG 42 Gunner-painted his way. It took Best of Show. I think he was very excited to receive the award.

I was honored to receive a gold medal for Blackbeard and the SCAHMS Master award. In an unusual move, the Master award was also given to Penny Meyer. In prior years there is usually only one award given. Congrats Penny!

I will go thru my photos ans see if any are worth a darn to post. It was a great time spent with folks I have known for years. This year I stopped by Bill Horan's for BBQ and a beer. Small crowd, good food. Thanks to Bill and Heather.
