Welcome to DVSM!

The Delaware Valley Scale Modelers (DVSM) is a group of adult builders of scale models of all types, including military and civil aircraft, military vehicles, cars, trucks, ships and dioramas -- in addition to sculptors and painters of miniature figures. We welcome builders of all skill levels, and strive to provide a supportive environment where everyone can improve their skills, whether their goal is to build for pleasure and relaxation, or for regional and national competition.

Contest Theme: "What If?"
Model must be an original kit-bashed idea, or e.g., WWII 1946, Steampunk, or something designed but never built.

Note: With the last meeting cancelled due to weather we will run the "The Vietnam War Era" theme next January.
