Welcome to Wright Field Scale Modelers

The Home of Active Modelers In the Miami Valley.

Welcome to Dayton's premier IPMS chapter and AMPS affiliate.  Come join us as we continue to grow into the most interactive and preferred general-interest modeling club in the Miami Valley.spad

If you're looking for an active modeling club that encourages and challenges you in the hobby and respects you and your work, please give us a try. 

We have quickly become the club of choice for folks starting new in the hobby, returning to it after years away, grizzled styrene warriors, and also of those who just simply like to build on a regular basis.

Our focus is simple:  Encourage fellow modelers to build, have fun, and to improve their skills through sharing of techniques, tools, and materials during monthly and special chapter programs, such as the Adult Building Course and "Make-N-Take" for the kids.


We are a  collection of "hands-on" modelers ranging in age from 8 to 80 who love to build anything and everything resembling a model.  You name it, we build it -- aircraft, armor, autos, ships, figures, space, sci-fi, and fantasy.  Our experience levels range from "snap" through national award winner -- and everything in between.  We welcome all.

IPMS LogoWright Field Scale Modelers is a dynamic chapter of the International Plastic Modelers Society - USA (IPMS/USA), AMPS Logochartered in December 2010, and the IPMS/USA Region IV Chapter of the Year for 2013.  We are also an affiliate of the Armor Modeling and Preservation Society (AMPS) since November 2012.  Although relatively new in existence, we are rich in modeling and club experience, with a fresh perspective and approach.
