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 the largest modeling club in New Mexico. 

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, May 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.
