Austin Scale Modelers Society

Welcome to ASMS...

The Austin Scale Modeler's Society "ASMS" is a chartered member of IPMS/USA, an organization of scale model makers. Our mission is to promote scale modeling in the Central Texas region. To that end, we hold monthly meetings and host an annual model show and contest, to which the public is invited. ASMS also attends air shows, military vehicle shows, car shows and other model shows in the region.

We welcome as members all who share this mission. Whether you join only to receive our monthly newsletter, "Sprue Examiner", or volunteer to help run our annual contest, you'll be helping ASMS spread the word about this rewarding hobby.
