Modeler in N. Central CA wants to meet nearby modelers Chico, CA
Posted by Wick Humble on Friday, November 23, 2018 7:20 PM

I'm a modeler in Chico, CA (yes, next door neigbor to unfortunate Paradise CA) who would like to meet or get in contact with nearby enthusiasts.  I'm 73 years of age, trying to restore my very old collection of plastic cars, and need help in learing to do resin small-part casting, and perhaps decal making.  Also, I'd like to know if there are any friendly model car shows nearby!

I've seen all the how-to stuff on Facebook, but most are inadequate or skip crucial steps that I need to know; I'm too old to start trial-and-error work, and need to see the processes done ONCE to 'get it'.  I have materials, even made a vac chamber, and being retired have the time, I think.  (I hope!)  I used to have some contacts locally, esp in Paradise: Mike Carroll judged some model competitions in local car shows some time back, and Roger English had one of the best small town model shops (and RC, etc.) until he sold out -- afraid maybe his collection and stuff might have burned in the fire, but fingers X-ed!)

So: anyone having email addresses or phone numbers to volunteer, please contact me via this mag.  :-<)
