Squadron is running a pretty nutty sale right now. Forcing you to come back each day at 10AM San Diego time for tons of discounts for the day. With Brewer Brothers going on this weekend I am trying to resist the Squadron allure… but seriously there are lots of good deals going on over there.

Hello my esteemed Model Building Colleagues of the Secret Society of Model Builders,

Just FYI: The Brewer Brother’s Big Show is back for our 17th ” History Hero’s & Hobbies” Expo to be held at the Yank’s Air Museum in Chino CA. on Saturday October 19th 2013. The Yank’s Air Museum has over 140 Aircraft from World War I to Modern Jets and has recently acquired 12 additional Aircraft, 4 of which I’m aware of ;F-15 Eagle, F-16 Falcon/Viper, Harrier Jump Jet, and a Blue Angels F-18 Hornet. The Museum has recently completed a beautiful Indoor 35 seat Theatre for our guests to enjoy WWII, Korea, Vietnam And IRAQ/Afghanistan Veterans speaking sessions and Movies.

This years Show will feature our second Model Kit Contest and exhibition covering 24+ categories with Trophy and Awards Ceremony. Last year there was $2,000 spent on Trophies alone! Get your Models ready. By the way one of our Judges is a Secret Society of Modelers member….Who could it be???George Creed and Jim Frye, as well as new comer Andy Kim will be Judging as well. Competitors who have been invited range from as far North as Fresno IPMS, AVG Antelope valley Group IPMS, OC IPMS, Phoenix AZ IPMS, Las Vegas IPMS, San Diego IPMS, Ontario IPMS, Pasadena Modelers, Temecula Valley Modelers Club, San Diego Ship Modelers Guild, Spruce Goose, and more.
