There's Ken taking a picture in the old Starbucks at Mayor Square which was a nice venue with plenty of light. Unfortunately it closed down and now that building is the only empty building in Mayor Square; that's some useless trivia for you. :P That meeting was on the 15th of August, 2009.

The next set of photo's are from the 19th of June, 2010.











That's a fine looking B-25 bomber I have to say.

Everyone's favourite Luft '46 aircraft; the Me262 Schwalbe.











An FW190 with fantastic engine detail.









The final picture is of a plane pizza. I'm a bit partial to some Buccaneer myself.

This next picture was taken on the 11th of December, 2010 at what looks to The Porterhouse on Parliament Street. Possibly the annual Christmas lunch?



Someone has been having a good time. :P

The next set of photographs were taken at the meeting on the 2nd of February, 2011. That must've been some lunch; it took all of January to recover. :ermm:

First up is an M-8 Greyhound armoured car, of the Free French forces, in 1/72nd scale; fantastic detail for such a tiny kit.





Next is a very well detailed Humvee in 1/35th scale. I wonder who it belongs too? :P









That's the targets out of the way, now onto the aircraft starting with a Soviet Hind helicopter.





A 1\144th scale Harrier jump jet; that has got to be a maddening scale to work in. :blink:







Some WIP's next starting with a Typhoon.



Finally a Gloster Meteor in what I think are Suez Campaign markings. I could be wrong though. :unsure:

The next series of photographs were taken on the 16th of March, 2011 and while it was a small meeting it was pretty prestigious because it was the first one I attended at the The Exchange and became seriously involved in the club. :P Nah, that's not that prestigious but it was a fun meeting. :>









We don't see a lot of mixed media projects in the club, besides Orks ( :P ), which makes this next picture all the more impressive. I think it's mainly wooden.



Another series of photo's from the meeting on the 26th of June, 2011.

Starting with a beautiful Gloster Meteor.



Also a stunning Sabre, I believe this is the Airfix kit.



An in-progress shot of my very own Blackburn Buccaneer; one of the first aircraft I finished. One of these days I'm going to build the kit again into a better version.



A little Finnish aircraft that I really should remember the name of; sorry Philip. :-/



I'll have to interject some targets into this airfield now starting with a Landrover.



Followed by a very large Russian KV-1 tank. I would not like to get on the bad side of this tank.



Back onto the aircraft with this Scottish Airways Rapide... I think this is a Rapide. I'm very bad at this. :huh:



Next is a Corsair with a wing fold and a collection of smaller aircraft.





Finally we have the rare-ish appearance of a ship but not just any ship; this is the stealth ship.

The next set of photo's were taken on the 16th of July, 2011.

First of all a rare group shot. I don't think we're the most photogenic bunch. :P



Next up is a Spitfire with some lovely weathering and an Aer Lingus airliner in the classic livery.







Remember Hawk mania; that oh-so-terrible affliction that haunted us last year. Here's the first of, I'm sure, many Hawk photo's.



This is actually my Hawk; the Italeri kit which isn't very accurate to be honest but the cockpit was a joy to work with.





A few targets next including an Israeli Merkava tank and an LRDG Chevrolet 30cwt.





Finally we have Jason's medal winning Tardis.



On the 20th of August, 2011 we were given a demonstration by Ken on how to work with vacuform kits. I for one shall never attempt one. :P

The meeting on the 17th of September, 2011 was a busy one judging from the following picture.



Lots of aircraft on show for this meeting including a couple of those dreaded Hawks. :P





















The October meeting on the 29th was a bit of a squeeze as you can see; we set up amongst the clothes racks looking very fashionable. :ermm:



Some more Hawk fever; it can really grab you.





We also had a boat along.

The November meeting on the 12th was even more of a squeeze as we were squirrelled into a coffee nook.





Oddly enough our usual airfield display was overrun by a number of fine looking targets.









Of course it wouldn't be a Dublin meeting without some aircraft including a P-51D Mustang, an Mi-2 Hoplite and a... chew toy? :P It's actually a Ferengi vessel from Star Trek.

The last meeting in 2011 took place on the 17th of December. We were treated to a bit of demo from Steve on working with green stuff & afterwards we retired to the Porterhouse for Christmas lunch.









Steve showed us some of things he's been doing with green stuff and milliput. Of course now we know he's turned it into a successful resign Stowage business.











Steve wasn't the only one busy sculpting though; we were also treated to Pat's Ork which picked up awards at both the IMSS show and our own Nationals in 2012.



A few aircraft also present that meeting including my own P-51D Mustang in Chinese Nationalist markings and an oddball Luftwaffe aircraft from Jason.





Finally, proof that ghosts do exist. Check this out. :P



Our first meeting in 2012, the 21st of January, got off to a rocky start due to some double bookings with our venue so we retired to old faithful, the Porterhouse.



It wasn't all blokes though; we were treated to this lovely lady. :wub:

The next meeting was on the 18th of February, 2012.







Keep an eye out for Cylons while viewing the next set of pictures. :P







We had quite a few bi-planes on the 18th as well.









Finally a technical stopped by with one hell of a gun on the back.

Moving onto the 24th of March, 2012 and we start we a group shot.



Followed up a range of aircraft.















A couple of sci-fi-ish entries here as well including a MiG-31 Firefox.





Finally a view of a Seaview which has hopefully found its way to a good home; one with huge shelves. :P
