SDMB welcomes our fellow modelers!

We are an International Plastic Modelers' Society U.S.A. chartered club


  SDMB members at  ModelZona 2013   


Founded in January 2010, Sonoran Desert Model Builders  is a chartered IPMS model club in Tucson, Arizona dedicated to advancing each others skills through tip sharing, encouragement and, most importantly, hands-on building. Our members enjoy a deep camaraderie and level of respect for each other as well as a passion for model building. We want YOU to join our friendly group! Check out our Members page and see what we build and what we are working on. Come to our meeting and see what we are all about, we won't bite. We build it all... cars, airplanes, armor, ships, figures, sci-fi...if it's a plastic kit we build it! (We even build non-plastic kits!)

 2014 Tucson Police Department Christmas Party Make-N-Take

SDMB meetings are held in the Patrick K. Hardesty Multi-Service building each month. This building houses the Tucson Police Department. For the past several years SDMB has been invited by the Tucson Police Department to hold Make-N-Take model building lessons at their annual Tucson Police Christmas Party.  It has been wonderfully received each year and is our way of saying thank you to the Tucson Police Department and also expose young people to the wonderful world of plastic modeling!

Many thanks to SDMB members Clara, Damon, Joe, Bill O, and Chuck for making this event a resounding success once again!

A sampling of December's club meeting and, of course, our models!

This month members brought in their favorite model they built in 2014.  This was judged by peers and the winner was Clara with her Fokker F.1 diorama (without wings).  A $50 Ace card was awarded. There was also a flurry of armor purchasing activity as visitors Mike and Kris brought several bins of kits for sale. Good times!
