HVHMG-Hudson Valley Historical Minatures Guild

As of February 2009, I have joined the local IPMS chapter, the HVHMG, Hudson Valley Historical Minatures Guild!

To see our annual club show coverage, see the Scale Model Shows section.

VIEWER DISCRETION ADVISED!

Since I joined the HVHMG, I have begun building more than just scale automobiles, I've discovered that I enjoy the figures most, with aircraft after them.

Club Projects
Every year we do at least one club project...I am documenting the buildup of each of them.

This was our Club Contest build. Amazingly to me, I WON! I have been entering car models in shows and contests since 2002 and had previously only won one plaque and one ribbon (The ribbon was at an HVHMG meeting, no less!) but I won my first every trophy with my first ever airplane!

25th Anniversary Banquet
Nov 9, 2011

2011 marks the 25th Anniversary of the HVHMG. We held a special banquet at Anthony's/Pizza Village in Hopewell, NY to honor the occasion. A great time was had by all, and a great meal as well.

Also some shots of the Roman themed wall paintings (ancient Rome is my facvorite topic- even moreso than NASCAR!) and the fish tank there.

Fleet Ops

I was actually able to attend one of our annual seminars, although I did miss the beginning- been feeling really awful lately. But I'm glad I went. Now I want to build more ships...My USS Jimmy Carter Submarine made the trip as well.

May 2012 Meeting

November 2012 Meeting
Nov 10, 2012

Our meeting was delayed several days by a snowstorm that hit the Hudson Valley, causing the Library where we hold our meetings to close early on our normal meeting nights. Few models showed up for our Mini-Comp, and I was very surprised to take a Gold with my SNJ Texan!

September 2013 Meeting
Sep 4, 2013

This is my 5th year with the club, but the first September meeting I've been to. Normally I am in Lake George but my health prevents me from going this year. So I get to go to the September meetings instead.

This is the second month in a row that is a member's last meeting, as Bob Doyno leaves us for parts south. It was seeing one of Bob's dioramas at the 2008 show that finally convinced me to join the club.
