As I have already mentioned today, I have been doing some research on Modelling in Small Scale again. I have found the following sites to be very helpful.
Both of these sites have been very good, and the Scottish Gaming Forum is well worth a visit, a lot of small-scale modellers also do War Gaming on the side.
There is a very active Scottish War Gaming scene, which the site promotes, and they are very well organized, giving details of local events through out Scotland.
Organizations for modellers.
MAFVA stands for miniature Armoured Fighting Vehicles Association. Which is a group of modellers and researchers dedicated to the modelling and history of Military Vehicles from all Nations and eras. They publish the excellent Tankette Magazine and have clubs in the UK. Their annual Modelling meeting is held in the Imperial War Museum at Duxford. This year’s show is on Sunday 6th June – check out this link for more details 2010 MAFVA Nationals
IPMS Stands for International Plastic Modelling Society

The Scottish Nats are known as the friendly show and is the major Scottish modelling event of the year with all the local model clubs putting on displays.
My own Local Model Club Lothian Modellers Club and Edinburgh IPMS have to move premises due to our existing venue the Royal Engineers club closing down at the end of this month. We are currently looking for a new home for the club in Central Edinburgh. I will post details once we have found a new home.
