Plastic Model Club to Meet at AeroKnow Museum

Springfield Area Plastic Modelers Club

Starting at 6:30 pm, Wednesday, November 14, Springfield Area Plastic Modelers Club (SAPMC) will meet in a new venue: AeroKnow Museum (AKM), located at Landmark Aviation, Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport in Springfield, Illinois.  We will likely meet for the first time in the ground floor office where I will have made room for at least five modelers. If more attend, we will move to a room upstairs. If you have never attended a meeting of the SAPMC, don’t be shy about attending this meeting. If you build anything plastic or resin, intended for static display on a shelf or hanging from the ceiling or a wall, this meeting will be worth your time because not all of us build airplanes. There are at least two vehicle modelers, a figure specialist, a space specialist AND airplane specialists.

The club is several years old, and many of the original members are still meeting and modeling, twice a month — 2nd and 4th Wednesdays. We all bring at least one project to work on, and there is as much friendly conversation as building going on. If you are new, we will tell you about the history of the club when you get here if you want to know.

There are no dues, nobody is going to want to sell you anything. If you’re hungry and thirsty, there are vending machines. In the future,  AKM will buy snacks and soft drinks for future meetings and offer them for what they cost. We will have an airbrush on hand for anyone who wants to use it.

In the past, attendees have headed for home between 8 and 8:30. If people want to stay late and tour the museum, Job Conger, director, will be happy to show you around.
