We are a group of like-minded individuals who have joined together to share their interest in model-making and collecting at various levels, and across all age groups. The primary aim of the Club is to “foster and promote the activity of model-making at all levels, providing technical advice & opportunities for all age groups.”
CARMARTHEN MODELLERS & COLLECTORS
Carmarthen Modellers & Collectors (hereafter known as the Club), was formed in April 2012, and was originally know as Carmarthen Modellers’ Club.
At present, meetings are held in Carmarthen, at ‘Yr Aelwyd’, Tre-gynwr, SA31 2ED and take place on the 2nd Wednesday of the month. Club annual membership which includes insurance cover for Adult Members is £15 per Adult & £7.50 per Junior/Associate.
Anything and everything, from LEGO to model kits big and small, from railways to spacecraft, from WW1 to Star Wars and beyond.
Current members work on models using such media as wood, plastic, metal and card. Their interests in model-making vary from Napoleonic War Figures and W.W.II Aeroplanes (Airfix kits) to Ships and Boats carved in wood. A suggestion was made regarding inviting collectors to become members, (hence the change to the original title) as most Members have a collection of some description tucked away somewhere..
A short video covering the Club Exhibition that took place on Easter Saturday, 15th April 2017. This was the 2nd Model Exhibition & Toy Sale to be organised by Carmarthen Modellers' Club at the Regency Hall, Saundersfoot Pembs. There were 26 tables supporting the Clubs motto 'Trains, Boats & Planes', as well as 14 Trade tables full of modelling kits & railway & train sets.
A few photos of the models and toys that were on show in Carmarthen on 29th July 2017. Although a small show it was very friendly and all the modellers were happy to answer any questions asked of them. I particularly liked the models in a box that were all designed to tell a story.
