About Us

Grand Strand Scale Modelers was chartered August 14th, 2018 as a chapter of IPMS/USA in the Region 12 Central Atlantic Division. Located in Myrtle Beach, we organized with six exceptionally talented individuals. Our goal is to improve our modeling skills as well as furthering the hobby. Along with these goals we are a social organization where anyone with an interest in scale modeling can enjoy camaraderie.

As of January 2020 Grand Strand Scale Modelers started meeting at the Myrtle Beach Vet Center - Department of Veterans Affairs.  Along with "Models for Troops" and the Myrtle Beach Vet Center - Department of Veterans Affairs, a mentoring program was formed for deserving veterans providing kits, supplies, and most importantly, a rewarding hobby in a safe environment.

Our Mission Statement

To encourage interest in scale modeling by providing an outlet for the exchange of ideas and cultivation of the modeling hobby.
