2015 IPMS USA Chapter of the Year
2015 Region 10 Chapter of the Year


Founded in January 2010, Sonoran Desert Model Builders is a chartered IPMS model club in Tucson, Arizona dedicated to advancing each others skills through tip sharing, encouragement and, most importantly, hands-on building. Our members enjoy a deep camaraderie and level of respect for each other as well as a passion for model building. We want YOU to join our friendly group! Check out our Members page and see what we build and what we are working on. Come to our meeting and see what we are all about, we won't bite. We build it all... cars, airplanes, armor, ships, figures, sci-fi...if it's a plastic kit we build it! (We even build non-plastic kits!)

Our latest pictures from our 
December 2018 meeting.
This month we had over 35 members attend.  Members displayed one of their models built in 2018 and we voted for model of the year with our very own treasurer Kent Weeks picking up that award - an ACE card to spend at the hobby shop! Chuck, our president, detailed our plan for Greek food for our Christmas party and other news. Todd, our VP, also ran the first Mega Raffle with 4 high quality kits to choose from. It was well received and the winner picked a Wingnut Wings Junkers D.1!  Now on to the  pictures 
of this months club meeting! Remember too, if you bring a model to display at a meeting you get a free raffle ticket and the chance to pick from a nice selection of modeling tools and equipment! So get building! 
2018 Model of the Year
Winner by popular vote...
