Nick Zeroli showed his latest creation - a P-51B. He gave us a brief run down on his
finishing method for fiber glassing a balsa wood fuselage. Very interesting!

Squadron Commander John Hall reported that he had recently purchased a 12 x 20 inch
computer driven laser cutter that can handle up to 1/4 inch plywood.
He presented each member present with a servo
kit which is pictured above in the plastic bag.
Thanks John.
