Charlotte Scale Modelers News


For our IPMS members, check out the latest issue of the IPMS Journal. Congratulations to club members Jorge Suarez and Bill Bosworth for being recognized for 50 years of membership in IPMS. These guys were cutting plastic sprues with sharpened flints back in the day.


Our next club meeting will be on Friday, March 1, 2024. We will have the usual show-n-tell, so bring those completed models for all to see.


The March 1, 2024 meeting was again well attended.

Our Club Secretary Joel Robinson has been elevated to the position of President, taking over from the outgoing President Dave Maher, who is relocating to Cary, NC.

He made the move official by joining the Eagle Squadron IPMS Chapter in nearby Raleigh.

We owe Dave many thanks for his service and dedication to the club and for trying to inject a bit of sanity into the club proceedings. I want to thank him for his friendship.

He's not that far away and we'll be seeing him around.

John Scott will be staying on as Club VP, and Gary Pearson has graciously agreed to stay on as Treasurer.

Yours truly, Chris Fish will try out the role of Club Secretary for the time being.

Reminder: On March 23, 2024, Grand Strand Modelers will be hosting the Region 12 Model Contest in Myrtle Beach. Further info and links are on our Events page.

Our next meeting will be on Friday, April 5, 2024 at 7:30 PM


Check the Modelers Reference Page. Recently added was an extensive list of "Aftermarket" producers. These include items for every modeling genre. Graciously prepared and provided by Roger Wood.


Charlotte Scale Modelers held their regular monthly on Friday, April 5th. As always there was good attendance and four new faces that we hope will be back as regulars.

On the business side of the meeting, there was discussion about possibly hosting another regional contest during the November 2025 timeframe. Many things still need to be ironed out before hitting the 'Go' button.


The 'Show & Tell' segment had a table full of high-quality models for us to admire. One model brought by a young man named Henry, recently won an award at the recent 2024 Region 12 Contest at Myrtle Beach, SC. His first contest ever. Congratulations Henry!

Be sure to check out our Facebook page for other photographs of models displayed at our monthly meetings.
