All Phases Of Model Building
Membership Offers the Plastic Model Builder the Opportunity to:
Learn New Techniques
* How To Seminars Members demonstrate the fine points of model building techniques. Get help from the experts on airbrushing, decal affixing, diorama development, construction secrets, and more.
* Guest Speakers share their expertise with us. Learn the fine points of color and markings to make your model more accurate. See gun camera film from the Gulf War. Talk to the Tuskegee Airmen in person!
* Photo & Slide Night provides us with the opportunity to see the item we might be working on.
Display your work
* Quarterly Contests give members an opportunity to showcase their work. Interest groups compete in their own category.
* Out of the box theme contests provide the basic modeler a chance to compete.
* Show And Tell allows you to bring your current project, complete or not, to display and discuss with the group.
Acquire "Out of Production Models"
