About the club

We are a group of people who enjoy the hobby of plastic model building. Our members interests range from Aircraft, Automobiles, Ships, Figures, Armour, to Sci Fi. We have all skill levels from beginners to some pretty talented modellers, but we mainly meet to share our work, ideas, tips and techniques, and talk about modelling in general.

Dave Afrika Korps Tiger Diorama – Dave is an accomplished figure painter and these tankers really compliment the story behind his Tiger I.





Rod German 1/16 Machine Gunner Figure – Rod has been bitten by the figure bug and has done a great job on hi 1/16 German machine gunner.
