The Society for Scale Modelers – Gozo (SSM – Gozo), is a club dedicated to the enjoyment of scale modelling and collecting. The club had it’s first model exhibition at the Victoria Scout Group HQ premises last weekend, the 5th and 6th of December. Various model subjects were covered.
The club was started on the 19th of April 2009, when a group of Gozitan scale modelling enthusiasts, decided to become founder memebers of the club. It is the local branch of the Society for Scale Modellers, based in Malta, and founded in 1981, which in turn is an affiliated member of the International Plastic Modelers Society (IPMS).
Thus, SSM – Gozo, was formed with the aim to provide a creative fellowship, a resource for modelling innovation, and an outlet for modellers in Gozo, to display their imaginative expression.
Furthermore, SSM – Gozo’s aim is to to cultivate interest in the hobby, particularly through the use of commercially manufactured plastic model kits, and to provide information and assistance to members, to continually raise the standards and refine the techniquesof their work through the affiliation with SSM.
