About the Event...

In 1973, a gang of unsung heroes decided to formally charter their ragtag group of modeling renegades with the International Plastic Modelers' Society. And thus the Huntsville Scale Modelers Association was born.

And now in 2023, the Huntsville Plastic Modelers' Society celebrates 50 years of modeling with our next model show with the theme "Fabulous at 50!"
