LETCHWORTH SCALE MODEL CLUB
2016The Club has been meeting in the locality of Letchworth and North Hertfordshire for well over 20 years. We organise and run the successful and popular Model Showcase every year. The 2015 Showcase was well attended and an enjoyable day out in late summer. However, the show, once again, did clash with some others plus holidays and a few regular attendees were not there. The Broadway Hotel continues to be very successful, with a fully refurbished ballroom where we hold the show. We will return there on 30th October 2016 for another inspiring show.
We are a small, friendly club which meets on the third Wednesday of each month. Meetings start at 7:30pm until about 10:30pm in the FOUR EMBLEMS CLUB in the centre of Letchworth. We have a wide variety of interests and skills encompassing many facets of design, construction, modification, painting and collecting. The richness of our group comes from this diversity.
The meeting is generally a themed meeting with club members or guests demonstrating a wide range of modelling techniques and collections but with plenty of time to chat. Activities include painting, conversions, collecting, restoring, sculpting and research.
We encourage all types of model making including model soldiers, toy soldiers, flats (zinnfigur), military and civilian vehicles, aircraft and boats. We also cater for those with an interest in military history, dioramas and wargame figures.
Through our members, we have connections with the British Model Soldier Society (BMSS), the British Flat Figure Society (BFFS), the Basement, IPMS and SHOGUN AG.
New members and visitors are always welcome. Membership to the club is open to the novice and also to the older more experienced model maker. Why not pay us a visit - the first year's membership is free! We look forward to hearing from you and introducing you to this exciting and absorbing hobby.
