  SDMB members at ModelZona 2015   


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!)

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

This month we had 35 members attend!  Greg showed us his 1/350 3D printed Ground Support Gear for aircraft carriers-impressive work! Simon showed progress on his 1/48 SM79, Clara her Wingnut Felixstowe and Douglas showed his amazing and completed HMS Dreadnought in 1907 configuration. Many more models were displayed including Annette's Countach engine progress and Derek's Roman soldiers.  Ren was able to snag a couple freebie kits that were donated to the club. There was plenty to see and the meeting was great fun! And now on to the models...

Pictures of Scorpfest / ModelMania swap meet held on January 16, 2016.
Our first Scorpfest model contest was a resounding success! Over 140 models were entered in our contest! The ModelMania swap meet was superb as usual with all tables used! Chinese food by Jane's Rolling Wok did take a little of the modelers money away but renewed their energy to go back in and keep shopping!
Many thanks to all that made this event a success!
