Folds of Honor Model Display

 

       

The ASM model display at the September 23, 2017 Folds of Honor (FoH) Patriot Gala fund-raising event at the Sandia Resort and Casino went very well, and I would like to thank everyone who loaned models and helped man the show. We had forty models in the display spread out over six tables, with good representation of all the US Services in armor, ships and aircraft/helicopters in a lot of different scales. We had two nicely done figures/vignettes, but no dioramas. We also had the “What is scale modeling?” signage out. We had a lot of people come look at the display, especially military personnel, and they all enjoyed the models. The People’s Choice (PC) model contest did not get a lot of participation, likely due to lack of advertisement and the way the ballroom was set up. The PC winners will be announced at the October 6 ASM meeting.

I have asked for some feedback from the FoH leadership on how they enjoyed the display and whether they would like ASM to do it again, but I have not heard anything back yet. At the ASM meeting we will talk about some lessons learned to make it better if we do it again in 2018. Thanks to Bret Kinman, Josh Pals, and Matt Blohm for helping to set up and man the display. Some pictures are included below.  The FoH Foundation provides scholarships and other assistance to the spouses and children of soldiers killed or disabled in service to our country.

                   

                   

               

 


 

National Museum of Nuclear Science & History

ASM Group Field Trip

ASM members conducted a group field trip on Friday, December 15, 2017, to the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History in Albuquerque. We had seven ASM members participating. Andy Rogulich, ASM member and docent at the museum, allowed us to piggyback on a tour that he was giving for the Air Force Nuclear Weapons Center.

The tour was concentrated on the development of nuclear weapons during World War II and the Cold War. Andy gave overviews of the information presented in each of the displays—he definitely knows this subject area.  These included the Manhattan Project and the develiopment of the atomic bomb and its testing at the Trinity Site at White Sands, New Mexico; Fat Man and Little Boy bomb replicas, the onset of the Cold War and the development of other nucler weapons; and civil defense preparations for nuclear attack. Of note, the two B-29 models of the Enola Gay and Bockscar in the museum display were built by former ASM member Pat Trittle. 

The group then went outside to get a tour of about half of the items on display there, due to time limits. The group saw the B-52B Stratofortess with Hound Dog missile, Mk 17 and Mk 53 nucleear bombs, external centerline tank for the B-58 Hustler, the Atomic Cannon, Honest John rocket, Nike Hercules surface to air missile (SAM), B-29 Super Fortress, replica of the Trinity Site bomb test tower, and an F-16 Falcon.  FYI - ASM did contribute funding for the paint used to refurbish the B-52!

A selection of pictures is included below. More pictures are posted - 62 total - on the ASM Website's Field Trips webpage. The sun angle was not the greatest so some of the pictures are pretty dark. Definitely recommended to visit. 

ASM will be planning to conduct another tour of this museum in 2018, as well as the Defense Nuclear Weapons School's Nuclear Weapons Instructional Museum at Kirtland Air Force Base. ASM has been contributing and loaning models for their displays, and we want to keep that effort going in 2018.
