We meet at the Armed Forces Military Museum, 2050 34th Way North, Largo, FL the first Tuesday of each month. You can arrive as early as 6:30. The meeting will be from 7 - 9 PM. Click here for map:


Membership dues are $25 / year or $3 / meeting with the first meeting FREE. Our biggest event is what we lovingly call Pelikon, the IPMS Region 11 Regional contest. This is our biggest contest usually held every two years. We always have hundreds of entries and many vendors selling goodies.

During our meetings we talk about the latest from the kit manufacturers and have informal classes to keep our skills sharp and maybe learn a thing or two. We also have a "Show and Tell" session where club members show off their latest works of art. There is also a raffle of various kits and supplies.

Our members enjoy modeling armor, aircraft, automobile, ships, figures and sci-fi. Our skill levels run from beginner to expert and all levels in between. We also like to support our community by getting involved with various projects that are happening locally. We have been actively supporting the efforts of the Make N Takes at some of the local hobby shops and display our models during the air shows at MacDill Air Force base.

Amazingly we still have four or five of our original members who regularly attend.
