Part 9

Part 9 ** This section contains assorted lists of information. Much of this ** information was taken from previous versions of the FAQ, and so ** may be dated - I welcome updates. The lists include: ** o A list of questions without answers. ** o Addresses of mail order companies and aftermarket suppliers. ** o Modeling clubs and special interest groups. ** o Intersting websites. Questions in search of answers. If any of you have the definitive answer to one of these questions, either saved from a previous discussion or just bouncing around in your skull, please send it off to me at: schmitz@transarc.com If you have more suggestions for the hints list, send those along too. - What is the best glue for various jobs? - What is the best paint for various jobs? - What tools do I need for modeling? - How do you get the !*&%$# Parafilm-M to stick? Addresses of mail order companies and aftermarket suppliers. This list is by no means comprehensive, or in any particular order. I'm not about to put any sort of rating next to any of these names [I thought about it, it would be nice, but I don't want to be sued]. I've divided this list into two groups: "distributors", eg. places that just sell stuff that someone else manufacturers, and "aftermarket suppliers", eg. companies that produce a niche product of some sort and also sell it mail order. - Mail order distributors Squadron Mail Order phone: 214-242-8663 1115 Crowley Drive Carrollton, TX 75011-5010 email: mailorder@squadron.com web: www.squadron.com/mailorder Primarily plane/armor kits and building supplies, also limited selection of cars, sci-fi, books, other odds and ends Valley Plaza Hobbies 3633 Research Way - unit 104 Carson City, NV 89706-7900 Phone: 702-887-1131, Fax: 702-887-1027 General kit supplier, seem to specialize in foreign/high end kits and 1/43 scale autos, but have lots of other stuff too.

Clubs and organizations General Modelling Clubs MAFVA, or Miniature Armoured Fighting Vehicle Association. The Association exists to promote interest in AFVs and their asociated equipment, covering the period from World War I to the present day, though tending to concentrate on World War II. It is much like the IPMS but concentrating purely on AFV modelling in all scales. A bimonthly magazine called Tankette is produced, which contains background articles, photographs and plans, as well as the normal kit reviews, how-to articles and conversions. It is an excellent publication containing lots of information not normally available. An annual model competion is held, which in 1994 is part of the Imperial War Museum's Military Vehicle Show at Duxford Airfield, Cambridgeshire, UK on Sunday, 7th August. Cost of annual membership/subscription to Tankette is as follows: 7 Pound Sterling for the UK; 9 Pounds Sterling for Europe and Overseas surface mail; 12 Pounds Sterling for Overseas Airmail. Payment should be made out to MAFVA and sent to: The Secretary, Mr G.E.C. Williams, 15 Berwick Avenue, Heaton Mersey, Stockport, Cheshire, SK4 3AA, U.K. Payment is prefered in Sterling though if that is not possible, please add 2 Pound Sterling to cover bank charges.
