Are there any modellers out there who live in Essex, UK? in particular Maldon??? My friend and I would like to start a local modelling club and we have a grand total of 3 people interested at the moment including myself and my friend

does anyone know somebody in the area that would be interested in joining the club????

As you can tell by the amount of interest we have at the moment we are having a bit of trouble "drumming up business"

Anyone got any ideas how we get more interset??

thanks for any thoughts

Have you posted something similar in either the UK community forum or perhaps on the IPMS-UK site?

You'd probably have more response than in this forum.

Good luck with it.

Hi Cromwell,

Sounds interesting to me - I live in Witham so Maldon is only a short drive away. Working in London means that I cannot get anywhere until late-ish, so having a club on my doorstep would be great

Hi Cromell,
Click on my banner or my Bulldog badge, that will take you to the IPMS-UK Kitmaker site, drop in and have a chat, we may be able to help, or give you a place to meet some more UK modellers. We get around to a few shows so we may get to meet
