Granite State Modelers Club
The Granite State Modelers Club is a group of builders of plastic model kits of airplanes, tanks, cars, boats, trains, starships, or just about anything else you can imagine. The club was founded in 1987. Every month we have a club meeting and discuss the latest model kits our members have built during the Show and Tell section of our meetings. The members share their experience and knowledge of plastic model kit building and painting techniques and we discuss news related to our hobby.

About the Granite State Modelers Club
GSMC meets every third Monday night (4th
Monday in Jan & Feb) of each month from 7:00 P.M. to 9:00 P.M. at the Nashua Public Library, 2 Court Street, Nashua, New Hampshire. Visitors are welcome to attend. Monthly show and tell pictures are posted on our website.

The club runs a model kit contest called GraniteCon. This show is one of the ways our club helps to promote and keep alive the hobby we all enjoy so much. It is an event to see the model building work of many fine local model builders in one place (including many of our members). It is a great event to help introduce the plastic model building hobby to the younger set and it helps inspire those who used to build model kits to get back into the hobby.
Our club is a chartered chapter of the International Plastic Modelers Society (IPMS). Membership in IPMS is not required to be a member of our club (but it is encouraged).
