Welcome to Scale Marine Modellers, Auckland

The Society was formed in 1981 by a group of enthusiasts, for those who are interested in “scale” and “stand off” scale models of launches, boats, merchant ships and sailing vessels. Models presently encompassed by the Society range from the simplest kit set available to sophisticated radio controlled models, which may have taken years to complete.

Club Activities & Events

The club has a number of regular activities from monthly meetings and exhibitions to sailing days. To find out more about our activities and see our event calendar, go to our club news & events page.


Every year we take part in numerous exhibitions including the Model X Exhibition in Henderson. All members are invited to display their models.

Monthly Meetups

Club nights are held at 7:30 pm on the second Wednesday of each month. Members are encouraged to bring along models they are working on to be placed on the table.

Sailing Days

The third Sunday of each month is club day with competitions held throughout the day.  These competitions involve navigating through a marked course.

As a part of our fundraising, the public and schools are able to hire a set of radio controlled model boats from us.
