Knox Scale Modelers Assoc.


About Us

The Knoxville Scale Modelers Association (KSMA) is a plastic model club that was started in 1982. Our interests include aircraft, armor, automobiles, dioramas, figures, science fiction, fantasy and ships. We welcome all new members, whether you are a beginner or an experienced modeler.


We have monthly meetings on the second Tuesday of every month in the gaming room of HobbyTown USA in Turkey Creek. Meetings include instructional DVDs, demos on modelling tips and techniques and seminars, plus Show & Tell when club members display their latest build projects. We have some models on view in the HobbyTown display case opposite the magazine rack at the back left corner of the store.


Every year we put on a hobby show featuring a contest with trophies for each of the different model categories and classes, plus hobby vendors selling a wide range of model kits,  and an exhibition of KSMA club members' models. See the Annual Scale Model Show page for details.
