Welcome to the Albuquerque Scale Modelers Club (ASM) Website

Interested in scale modeling?   If so, the Albuquerque Scale Modelers Club invites you to attend one of our monthly meetings.  Meeting events normally include a model contest, club business, modeling skills demonstrations, and sometimes a historical speaker.  ASM includes all types of models – aircraft, armor, ships, figures, cars, space exploration, science-fiction, anime – whatever your particular interest might be.  Membership is at four levels of modeling skills – Junior, Basic, Intermediate, and Masters.  ASM is a chapter of the International Plastic Modeler's Society/USA and is New Mexico's largest modeling club.  ASM was formed in the early 1970's. 

Our club meets monthly on the first Friday of each month at 7:30 PM, adjusted for holidays.  Our meeting location is the University of New Mexico Continuing Education Building/Conference Center at 1634 University Blvd NE in Albuquerque.  The business meeting begins at 7:30 PM.  Model contest entries closes at 8:00 PM, and judging begins at 8:00 PM

The next ASM meeting is on Friday, June 2nd.  Please drop by and join us.  Feel free to contact any of the Board Members for additional information - see Executive Board listing at left.    Updates are made to this webpage following all club meetings and when new information is available.  The banner at the top of this page provides highlights of new information.

ASM membership dues are $25 per year for an Adult, $10 for Juniors (under 18), and $30 for a Family membership.

IPMS/USA is the United States Branch of the International Plastic Modelers' Society, whose roots can be traced to the startup of the first IPMS National Branch during the 1960's in Great Britain. In 1964 a US-based modeler applied for a charter to start the US Branch. In the ensuing 4 decades, IPMS/USA has become a 5,000 member organization dedicated to promoting the modeling hobby while providing a venue for modelers to share their skills in a social setting, along with friendly but spirited competition in the form of local, regional, and national contests and conventions.  There are over 220 active US chapters. including groups in Canada and the Philippines as well as one "cyber-chapter" existing entirely on the internet.  Source:  IPMS/USA's "About IPMS/USA" web page.
