Meeting Info Flyer
Our meetings are open to anyone who shares our interest and enthusiasm for the history and technology associated with armored fighting vehicles and the men and women who serve in the military forces of the world along side those same vehicles.
Please see Our FaceBook Page for more picture, activities and info.
ADDITIONAL PICTURES ADDED! Mike used Tamiya's new "U.S. Tank Destroyer M10 Mid Production", 1/35 scale kit #35350. Although he has built the kit mostly out of the box, Mike has replaced the kit tracks with a set of DML M4 Sherman Tracks, and also added some scratch-built details and items. The figures are actually included in the Tamiya kit. Mike created a small diorama/vignette with some GC Laser-cut wooden items along with a small European Roadside Religious Shrine called a "Wegenkruez".

Our annual local model show and exhibition will be bigger than ever this year on June 23, 2018! This year we are co-hosting with the local IPMS Club, the Mid-Carolina Swamp Fox Modelers, which should make for a great Scale Model MEGA-Show.
NEW! We've already lined up quite a few Model-Related Vendors along with a couple great Food Venders, too!
For all of the latest Show information, please see our June 2018 Show Page!

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)!"
