Welcome to the Albuquerque Scale Modelers Club (ASM) Website Home Page

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.  ASM activies include conducting model displays in the community, taking field trips to model-related events, and sponsoring and conducting the Model Contest at the New MexicoState Fair each year.  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 late 1960's and became an IPMS/USA Chapter in 1983. 
  

Our club meets monthly on the first Friday of each month at 6:30 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 6:30 PM.  Model contest entries closes at 7:00 PM, and judging begins at 7:00 PM.  Note that these are time changes from 2020.

The next ASM meeting is on Friday, August 6th, 2021.  See Note below.  This is an in-person meeting with an ASM Swap Meet and no contests.  Stay tuned for any procedures required by the UNM Conference Center.  Details are available on the Home Page.  Please drop by at one of our meetings and join us.  Please contact ASM at the E-mail address below 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 any new information.

** Due to the continuing pandemic, only current members & invited guest speakers will be allowed at ASM meetings. **

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 5 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.
