This is the home on the web of Alamo Squadron, the San Antonio chapter to the International Plastic Modelers' Society. Discover the many models, activities and events the club is happy to build, support, organize and promote.

Established in 1977, the Alamo Squadron is a social organization in which all modelers and modeling interests are accepted and invited to join in the fun and enjoyment of making models, as well as the camaraderie of helping others enjoy this wonderful hobby. We are proud to have served the Central Texas community for over 45 years, as well as supporting other hoby clubs in Texas, Mexico, and the Southern United States by cultivating and promoting a general interest in the scale modeling hobby.

Important notice from el Presidente: Alamo Squadron's March 7, 2024 Meeting will be held at Jordan Ford's Pat Booker Facility (Address in NEXT MEETING tab). The meeting will start at 7:00 PM but the building will be open at 6:00 PM for early arrivers. There are tables for Contest and WIP, but only a few chairs. I am asking everyone to bring their own chair. You may leave your chair for future meetings if you wish. Jonathon Griffith will have the keys to the building and parking gate, so there is no pressure to conclude the meeting. It is my hope that this facility will become our regular meeting place.
