Don't know exactly where to begin; I'm not even able to find a search button to find this out for myself, but here we are!
I thought I'd hunt around to see if there were any local military modeler groups or online clubs based in my AO, which is the northern virginia region - I live in Alexandria, and work in Centreville near Dulles Airport in Fairfax County.

I'm one of those guys who had kids, now in family # 2 after a divorce, and I'm getting back into modeling after several decades of being "out of it"....first mil models around 1974 when 10 years old; you know - the old Monogram Pz IV's and Shermans......stopped during college '82-'86, restarted in the late '80's, quit again after marriage #1 began, and now I'm back.

Working on an "antique" Jagdtiger from Tamiya I had started in 1988 or so.....as well as a "new" Tamiya steel-wheel Tiger I and a Dragon late Tiger II.

OK, more later- once I have some pics to upload into a gallery!

Adam,

I have some good news. There is a very active and growing IPMS Group that meets at Fairfax High School in Fairfax City, usually on the 1st Wednesday of the month: Northern Virginia Modelers.

For August, the meeting is the 1st Tuesday of the month: August 7th at 8 PM, but people usually start showing up around 7 PM.
