Club Feature: The Ships of New Jersey IPMS, 2002
Editors Note: If you'd like your model club to be featured here, please send photos and bio information on your ship-building club member to JEFF
New Jersey IPMS meets on the 2nd Friday of the month in Garfield, New Jersey, at the Knights of Columbus Hall. Ship modelers have been known to infiltrate the ranks of aircraft and armor modelers here, so be on the lookout for the following self-professed ship modelers, these suspects have been known to bring ships to club meetings.
Martin Quinn, Bob LaPadura, Bill Connelly, Jeff Herne, Tom VanDermark, Tom Stead, Smitty Aguilar, Mike O'Connor, Ernest Connor, Pat O'Conner, Tom Stead, Stan Stankiewicz, Joe Smith, and Harry Dente...the list of suspects is probably longer, but these characters have actually brought ship models to the meetings since I've been there...
