54mm Hawkeye header photo

The image in the header of the website is a close-up of the groundwork shown at our February chapter meeting by member Gary Rhunke.

The figure on the base is TBG Miniatures Hawkeye figure in 54mm.  The figure is painted with Vallejo paints. The kit came with a resin base and Gary added  Woodland Scenics Realistic Water and Water Effects to create a stream through the center.  The fallen log, leave debris, and moss recreate the Eastern woodlands habitat of the Last of the Mohicans in the wilderness of upper New York. He used a variety of materials to recreate the foliage and other fallen debris of the base.

Excellent work Gary!

The newsletter archive has been updated with missing newsletters from 2011, 2013, and all of 2014 uploaded.  These are the monthly newsletters we send to our members.  If you would like to get on our email list, please drop me a line.

You’ll notice that we are missing some newsletters.  These are either in between editors and no newsletter was published, or I didn’t keep a copy.  If you have one of the missing issues, please send me a copy.

Also, if you have been following along with Curt Pangracs’ build of the M2A3 Bradley, he’s placed more photos and narrative of where he is on the build.  Enjoy!
