2015 IPMS USA Chapter of the Year
2015 Region 10 Chapter of the Year


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!)

Our latest pictures from our August meeting.
This month we held elections for the 2016 club officers. Welcome to Derek Campbell as president, Damon Blair as returning Vice President, Kent Weeks as second term treasurer and Mike Scotto as secretary taking over Derek's job! Congratulations to all and thank you!
Our 3-term President, Dave "the Weatherman" Brown attended his last meeting this month as our president and we all thank you for your service Dave! You have been a great president and we look forward to seeing you on the other side of the table as "just a modeler" Ha-ha!

Dave, with trusty iPad in hand, conducts his last meeting as president!
(At least until he runs again!)
29 SDMB members were in attendance by my count!!
I have to feature a picture I took of Bob Duke's 1/700 U.S.S. Cole. The water effect he achieved combined with lighting is just incredible and deserves a look-

Now, on to the models and pictures of another great meeting...
Enjoy Scorpions!

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!
