Club Newsletter Exchange

Like me, I imagine most on this forum also belong to a local modeling club. This forum itself is kind of like a world-wide model club that unfortunately a lot of us will never get the chance to meet in person. What I'm wondering is if anyone else would be interested in exchanging club newsletters. If you'd like a copy of the Milwaukee AMG (Auto Modelers Group) newsletter, send me a PM and I'll send a copy out to you. I'd also like to receive newsletters from your clubs.

That is a cool idea.

But I am curious how many members here are actually in modeling clubs?

There actually is a car modeling club within about a 45min drive of here. (Their newsletter is here ( But the few times that I've been there, I've found that their subject matter is somewhat limited and not something that I know or build (I can't really tell a muscle car from a hoopty).

But for 10+ years, the forum here has provided all the modeling club I could want- and I suspect I'm not alone in that.

So how about it? How many people here are in car modeling clubs? Or non-car modeling clubs? Or not?

I have to admit, being a "sports car guy" there is definitely more subject matter that I'm truly interested in on this forum than in the local club as most of them are into 50's & 60's American cars, muscle cars and customs. But it's still nice to have that face to face contact and on hand help. I actually belong to two clubs, AMG (car club) and IPMS Bong chapter (more aircraft and military subjects).

I'm co-founder of our local club since 2001 and friend with a couple other club within a 2-3 hour drive from my place. Even if I'm basically the only one in my favorite subject, I like the friendly face to face part of the club and been able to pass and get technique and tips from other modelers in othe area of the hobby...

I'm a member of the Austin Scale Modelers Society. I didn't join to be a better modeler. I got involved because I enjoyed their annual show and wanted to help out. We have a lot of events like fundraisers, auctions, barbeques and parties. ASMS is sort of like a frat for model people. Or at least, that's how I think of it.

Our newsletters are on the website for public use: (
