Welcome to the GIBRALTAR SCALE MODEL SOCIETY ( GSMS ) the Society made for modelers by modelers. We all firmly believe that competing against other modelers you can identify what you do well and where do you need to get better at. Most of the Board Members have a decade of experience, some have two decades and a few have three decades of experience. We’re ALWAYS willing to give tips and tricks to improve your craft. Most importantly – ENJOY IT , it’s all a matter of patience and time!


Established in 2018, the society’s primary objective was to raise the level of scale modelling to the highest possible standard and to change public perception from that of a hobby for dilettantes to that of an appreciated art-form. This objective was reached and surpassed through the years as attested by public attendance at the Society’s events which have taken place every year since its inception and continue to this day.

The main event of the Society is that of its Annual Competition. In recent years the Gibraltar Scale Model Society competition has taken place at the Gustavo Bacarisa Art Gallery situated at grand Casemates square, however this year the event is moving to the Gibraltar Exhibition of Modern Art, located at Montagu Bastion, Line Wall Road.

The Gibraltar Scale Model Society is an affiliated member of the International Plastic Model Society, and Branch Members of The Armor Modeling and Preservation Society and The Miniature Armoured Fighting Vehicle Association.

Our doors are always open for new members and visitors so if you like to build models, interested in trying it for the first time or a modeller visiting our island, do not hesitate to contact us and meet the members.
