About the Club..

No Dues. No Politics. No Egos.

No Elections. No Criticism. No Pressure.

NMMA is a regional Chapter of the International Plastic Modeler’s Society (IPMS), and the Armor Modeling and Preservation Society (AMPS), independent organizations dedicated to serving those interested in the modeling of armor and other military vehicles. NMMA is a model club open to anyone who is interested in military vehicle model building, painting, collecting, and research. A free exchange of resources, tips, techniques, knowledge, and reference materials is always emphasized.

Our members are interested in the construction, development, history, characteristics, and operational use of armored and other military vehicles from World War I to the present, in all theatres of operation. NMMA meets officially on the second Saturday of each month from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM, followed by a Chapter social. Meetings are held at 68 Morris Street, Naugatuck, CT 06770-3318. No application process is required, just show up at a meeting.

Meeting attendance is not required for membership. Long distance members can keep up to date with the monthly club e-newsletter and in the club online forums. Love of tanks and military vehicles essential. Sense of humor required. Passion for war films a plus. Completion of a model in the last ten years totally unnecessary.

NMMA meetings are a casual open conversation on any and all related subjects. NMMA members range from beginner to master, teen to sixty…. um, well, really old. We pass around the newest model kits, the latest books, and the coolest tools. We show our latest works in progress, or not. We always share advice, tricks, tips, ideas, techniques, and news. Each meeting features a shop demo on a different technique, material, tool, or aspect of model construction, painting, and weathering.

NMMA carpools to 10 local shows a year and a fantastic time is always guaranteed. The NMMA calendar features the July lakeside cookout, the August museum road trip, our show IPMS AMPSEast, and the always memorable Christmas party. Membership is open to all.
