1) The main clinic will be "Making Rocks Without Molds" by Bill Grierson.  It is the rare layout that does not need a rock or two. This should be helpful for everyone.

2) The Show and Tell will be "Passenger Cars."  Bring your favorite, finished or in-progress.  There should be a lot of variety in this topic.

Last Month 

Ryan Moats gave a good presentation on tools. Thanks to Ron Brozanic for the photos. 

Fun Stuff this month - 

Unsure how to get the most out of your multi-meter?  Here's a good tutorial from Element 14.

Scale Model Workshop often has tools and products we don't typically see in the model railroading world.  This video demonstrates several uses for Apoxie Clay.  A two-part clay with a relatively long working time, but hardens after a bit.

see you next time, gs
