What we do
Our members build models from all kinds of materials – plastic, resin, metal, wood and more besides. We see a good variety of subjects: Not just aeroplanes and military vehicles – although there are plenty of those – but fast cars, ships, figures, trucks, and creations from the worlds of science-fiction and fantasy too. It’s all good.
Our meetings start with a Show & Tell session, where members show off models they’ve built or are working on, and talk about the process and the end result. After this we have a cup of tea or coffee and a chat, and there’s often something organised as well – we’ve had quizzes, technique demonstrations, speed builds, and other modelling-related activities.
We meet on the last Wednesday of every month apart from December, in the Johnsonville Community Hall. We use the Trust Room, which is upstairs from the Moorefield Road entrance. Meetings start at 7.30pm and usually end around 9.30-10pm.
New members and guests are welcome – just come along to a meeting!
Where we meet
Our club newsletter Connections is published monthly for members. It’s a pretty good read and even if you’re not a member you can download back issues from our archive.
Scale Models Expo
Scale Models Wellington has been hosting the successful Scale Models Expo in the Wellington region for many years. It’s a public model show and competition with a focus on getting people involved in the hobby. Our last Expo was in 2016, and we’re looking to host the next in 2018.
