Our member interests span the entire spectrum of the subject and include all eras and nationalities, from pre-WWI experiments with armored cars to vehicles seen on the most contemporary battlefields of today.  Our interests include not only fully-tracked main battle tanks, but also engineering vehicles, halftracks, armored cars, artillery and guns, as well as soft-skin military support vehicles, figures, and even "hypothetical" and sci-fi military subjects.  Model-building genres cover all scales and mediums from traditional injection molded plastic to resin, white metal, and scratch-building.

We invite you to come and join us at our next meeting and share the comradery found in our little "band of brothers (and sisters)!"
