22nd January Small figure painting – Eric will demonstrate how to paint small-scale figures and hopefully our true-scale members will crew their tanks!

26th February Quiz night – bring along an extra brain…. Phill will be providing the questions. ALSO…… bring a model to talk about if time permits.

23rd April Normandy Museums – members who have been to our 'local' sites will give a talk about what is to see and which ones are best to visit.

21st May Model making! Bring a kit, plus your travelling toolkit, and spend the meeting quietly making something. See how much you can do!

18th June Eric will turn his attention to larger scales, and will show how to get success with bigger figures for crew, vignettes and dioramas.

23rd July Annabel will talk about the Maginot Line in general, and her visits to the forts in particular. Lots to learn about the amazing but failed defences.

27th August Sherman Identification – Tony and Neil will explore this immense and complex subject, and help us to make sense of the different types.

24th September Bridgelayers – Mark will talk about bridging tanks in general, and many British types in more detail. Interesting that other nations had so few…
