are scale model clubs and groups in Florida.
I live in Florida, these are so I can check up on events
and see what's going on locally in my state.
model clubs usually do model shows and events of some kind,
usually once a year. Over the years, many of us have gotten
to know each other as modelers, even if we only see each
other in person maybe once or twice a year. The events are
more of a get together to talk about and enjoy the hobby,
though there can be some friendly competitiveness.
been to shows in Tampa, Cocoa, Fort Lauderdale, Pompano,
West Palm Beach, Ocala, Miami and many others closer to
my home. I've been to three National IPMS events. Once in
Miami, and twice in Orlando.
encourage you to visit a show. Even if you don't build,
or have a model to enter in the event, go as a guest or
just as a spectator. You will be amazed at the scale models
you will see.

of the conventions and events are related to modeling
in some way. It depends on what kind of modeling you do.
For Scifi conventions, vendors carry scifi related kits
and toys and memorabilia. For Anime conventions, you will
see kits and figures related to anime and Japanese culture
models (Gundam, Transformrs, etc). At a comics convention
you'll see figures, statues and kits of super heroes.
Again, as long as there are vendors, you might find that
kit or toy related subject you've been looking for.
