Fall Modelers Meet
October 11, Bedford IN

The 2014 CID fall Modelers Meet will be held in Bedford, IN on October 11, 2014. The location will be Fellowship Hall in the First United Methodist Church, 1409 K Street. The times will be from 10A to 3P. As usual, this will be a meet for CID/NMRA members (members only, please) who are more experienced modelers. Modelers attending should bring along some of their current work for display and discussion. The subject for this meet will be Structures. Information on modeling techniques used will be shared among the modelers and there will be a clinic presentation. Marty Witkiewicz will be our clinician and his clinic will be on building, painting, and weathering large plastic structures. Marty's layout has many structures that were kitbashed from multiple plastic kits. He'll tell us about the techniques he uses to produce these large buildings. Although the subject for the meet will be Structures, you may bring any modeling project you wish to share with others. Remember, the model does not need to be completed. Lunch will be on-your-own. You may either bring your lunch there are always some of us who stay at the meet during lunch or you can drive to a local fast-food establishment. Since there will be some of us in the room during lunch, your models will be safe if you wish to venture out for food. If you have questions, please contact Steve Studley,

- Layouts For HIGHBALL to INDY 2016 -
Our current knowledge of modelers who might be interested in layout tours runs in the number of approximately 50 layouts. We know that there are some of you model railroaders out there thinking that it is time to show off your layout and if you think that you are ready, please contact Steve Studley our CID Superintendent or Chuck Tuttle who is starting to recruit Layouts for the NMRA National Convention,
"HIGHBALL to INDY 2016."

The Back Shop on a railroad is a shop where locomotives are repaired. The CID Back Shop is a place to get help with modeling problems or find "fixes" for situations on your model railroad. This can be help with any area of the hobby from the very beginning to advanced situations.

You have special techniques, talents, skills or knowledge! There is something that you know well that you can share with other modelers! We'd like you to think about giving a clinic at a Meet. We can help. For more information or to volunteer, contact:
Clinic Chairman Bill Litkenhous at (812) 414-2599 (Home) or (812) 272-1223 (Cell),
or the CID Webmaster Roger P. Hensley,
