South Hants Area Group Report

Tuesday 14th April 2015

We thank the Southampton MRS for hosting a most enjoyable night listening to the thoughts and forecasts for the hobby from Tony Wright, plus his excellent presentation “The Changing Hobby”. including models old and new.

Tony gave us a lot to think about and for some of us some inspiration to do more model making.

Thanks especially to Alison and Dave Barker for setting the meeting up and of course to Tony Wright.

Our Next Meeting is planned for Tuesday 9th June 2015, from 7:30 as follows

Dave Bridges will display and talk about the prize wining coaching stock he makes. with an emphasis on finishing, painting and lining the complex LNWR livery (and others). Dave is most prolific coach modeller we have in SHMRC and he puts most of us to shame, how does he do it. Come along and you might learn.

The EM gauge Hope under Dinmore and the S4 Eastwood layouts should be erected and available for running, so members are encouraged to bring models to display.

Tea/coffee and biscuits should be available at the meetings.

At the end of the evening members are invited to join the Portsmouth locals at "The Churchillian" next to the clubrooms before they go home .

Please Come and join us.

Best Regards

South Hants Area Group Meetings (EMGS & S4)

Short report Summer 2015 .

The Area Group continues to meet regularly, in June when Dave Bridges gave an illustrated and informative talk about “Making and Finishing Coaches” and we were able to see

The EM gauge Hope under Dinmore and the S4 Eastwood layouts. thank you Dave for a most interesting talk.

The next meeting is on Tuesday Night 15th September 2015. The title of the night is "Wagons Roll". Ray Hodson will give an illustrated talk on Pre Grouping plastic wagons, especially conversions and adaptions. Wagon loads will also be discussed.

ALSO members are encouraged to bring any models to join in a Show and Tell session after the tea break and before we go to the pub.

Tea/coffee and biscuits should be available at all meetings.

At the end of the evening members are invited to join the Portsmouth locals at "The Churchillian" next to the clubrooms before they go home.

In November we have booked Terry Bendall to give us a talk called "I did (do) it my way". Terry has been at the forefront of S4 Modelling for many many years, in the early years he was one of the founder members of the Group that built Pulborough as featured at many shows and in the MRJ. Presently, with his son, he has a modern image S4 layout on the exhibition circuit and is the Scalefour Exhib manager.
So make a date in your diary for November 10th. Subject to confirmation.
