Fremont Hornets Welcome You to our "model" world !
UPCOMING AT JANUARY HORNETS NEST -
Special First Club Contest of the year which happens to tie in to Teutonic tone of the TriCity 11: " Operation Bodenplatte " launched on New Years Day 1945
We're FREE HORNETS ! WE DO WHAT WE WANT !!!
We're a San Francisco Bay Area model club dedicated to the promotion of the hobby of scale modeling. Our roots reach into the Canadian IPMS and the original British Plastic Modelling Society. We are a proud chartered chapter (since 1977!) of the IPMS/USA. Our meetings are always open to first time visitors (membership is encouraged) Our membership of builders is diverse and our meeting atmosphere ranges from the sublime to the raucous.
So come prepared to have fun and ENGAGE!.
Our club motto: "Come for the Models, Stay for the Sarcasm"
Meetings: IPMS/Fremont Hornets meets the second Friday of each month at 7:30 PM at the Irvington Community Center in Fremont. The full address is 41885 Blacow Rd. Fremont, CA
Contact Info: Web Editor (Mick Burton)
Our Next Meeting: January 09 2015
We often work on models (aka "buildfest") together during the meetings if not otherwise planned. However, it's not required and we're limited to light duty (no airbrushing, heavy sanding or other debris/noise production tasks, finicky/highly odorous chemicals, etc) Visitors are welcome to fit right into this, ask a member for details. Model talk is always a feature and you can also expect most often a monthly raffle thanks to effort to get fun items by one member and the ticket selling by another
Our appreciation always to Al at Hobbies Unlimited in San Leandro, who's a great supporter of our hobby and Hornets
