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 
September 2018 meeting.
This month there were approximately 39 people in attendance! We said farewell to Derek as our club president the last two years and we now have our own easy to remember domain name "" Now on to the models and pictures 
of this months club meeting! Some really outstanding work by our club! Remember too, if you bring a model to display you get a free raffle ticket! So get building! (note to self-haha!)
Hail and Farewell! Thank you for 2 years serving as our President, Derek!
Dave Diaz presents a sword he made for our illustrious
Napoleonic and Roman figure enthusiast, and now former SDMB president.
A fitting tribute to a great job as SDMB president!
