The Cincinnati Scale Modelers (CSM) are a group of hobbyists who build scale models. Our members build scale model ships, planes, armor, autos, spaceships (real and imagined), figures, and dioramas. Founded in 1995, CSM is a charter club of IPMS/USA (International Plastic Modeling Society), a 5,000-member organization which champions many model building contests at the local, regional, and national level.
The CSM meets the first Sunday of each month, when possible, and in a two-hour session we show our recent model builds, share resources and stories, and have a good time, plus have a brief business meeting. We also sponsor a local contest each Fall, where you can enter your models into a judged contest, buy kits, tools, and supplies from many vendors, enter a raffle, and see a huge model display crafted by fellow builders.
If you enjoy building scale models and want to join our organization to have fun, share your skills and adventures, and learn new techniques of the scale model hobby, then please join us.
The club meets on the first Sunday of each month, from 2 – 4 PM at Eastminster Presbyterian Church, 4600 Erie Avenue, Madisonville, Ohio 45227.
