Our previous demonstration program on making open face resin molds was a great success. Art Silen demonstrated techniques for creating open faced resin molds for making custom-designed model components. Click on the attached link for further information. Making Open Face Resin Molds
Silverwings cordially invites modelers and those are new to model building to attend our meetings. Membership is open to anyone who wishes to participate. Many of our members’ affiliation with our club and our national affiliate, The International Plastic Modelers Society (IPMS/USA) extend back more than 25 years.
Our members’ modeling interests extend to a wide range of subjects that include aircraft, both military and civilian; military vehicles and equipment; vignettes and dioramas; historical figures, science fiction and fantasy; naval and maritime subjects; civilian vehicles, trucks, and race cars; railroad equipment, and other modeling subjects. If something can be modeled, one or more of our members will want to do it.
The skills, techniques, and artistic sensibilities that we bring to our modeling subjects allow us to employ skilled and imaginative craftsmanship and renderings fully into play, allowing us to re-create in miniature both our collective history and objects from our daily lives. We welcome newcomers and we are always available to teach anyone telling to learn how to build and display better models.
