Another meeting. The first after a long and hot summer vacation...Let's start with the models. Nestor built this Liberty Ship recieved from Andre... That proves he is not only at subs:

Cristian showed us his Tamiya Fw-190 in 1/72. Very crisp and realistic...

...Until some folks decided a torpedo version should be proposed:

And here is Bradley's finished M-26. He told us he used the final clear coat varying from gloss to flat depending on the area of the hull. The effect is very realistic in real life:

Well, it is not easy to impress Fernando, but some friends seemed to succeed in that:

Some relaxing moments. Here, Nestor is checking out the books from GE inventory:

He also explained to me the details of his next diving trip... Truk Lagoon. Lots of WWII relics sunk there.

Your editor chatting with Cristian:

And a most rare moment: Fabricio checking an WWI aircraft kit...

Rodrigo and Blanco took pics for online group builds:

A sample of the goodies brought to the meeting:

And while some relaxed...

...others got busy on models. Blanco, as usual, advanced a bit with his Hobby Boss Me-262:

And the official family pic

But WAIT!!! Where's André??? Oh, well, we should have guessed. In the bathroom, his favorit place:

Now yes, the official pic (Left to right, standing: Fernando, Bradley, yours truly, Bruno, Nestor, Blanco, Vieira and Fabricio. Kneeling, left to right: André, Rodrigo and Cristian):

Let's wait to see the final report when put on air (probably in a few days). Thank you boys! Good show...
