Builders Mafia is a loose group of skilled model builders.
Primarily our guys and gals build cars and trucks, but we
also dabble in any other kind of model that interests us.
Scifi, Dioramas, to ships and planes. We don't just sit around
and talk about building or collecting kits - we actually build!
We are heavy into race cars, along with European and Asian
market vehicles, but again, our group will build almost anything.
are located in south Florida, with modelers from West Palm
Beach to Miami, and everywhere in between.
of all we just like to enjoy our hobby with other friends
and builders from all over. We also like to share what we
do and let others see our work
much are the dues to join? - We have no dues, and there
is nothing to "join". If you're a modeler - you
are welcome to hang out with us at our events. Bring a model!
A car, airplane, scifi, military, whatever - We would love
to see what you're building.
"Model Builders Mafia"? Because we're not
your traditional "model club". We do things differently,
and we rebel against the older formats that clubs tend to
still use today. We're more interested in having a good
time with modelling and sharing our hobby. Without all the
do you have your meetings? We don't have a structure
for "meetings". Since we get together at our events
throughout the year (usually at least once a month), we
see each other quite often. Most of us have fulltime jobs
and careers. So the modellers that can attend do so when
they can. We work around our family and job obligations
just like everyone else. We're not interested in making
your life complicated. If you can attend one of our events
- feel free to stop by.
there an age limit? Not really. If you're a model builder
you do a model contest / shows like other model clubs?
We have display events all during the year, more than just
one. Unlike other model club events, we don't charge modelers
money for displaying their models. Bring a model to show
and share! We're not here to judge your models, or tell
you they are good or bad. We just like to talk models, share
ideas and tips, and have a good time.
the models you display diecast toys?
Our models are generally plastic or resin, and are comprised
of dozens if not 100s of individual parts, all carefully
assembled by hand.
usually have display events almost every month, sometimes
more than one. Unlike traditional model clubs that typically
do a model "event" once a year, if at all, we like
to get involved and share our hobby with the public. So we
do display events throughout the year. We're quite active.
are some great companies and groups we work with!
- We setup with FARA at the Homestead race track. If there's
a race at the track then that means we are usually there
with a great display.
Racing - TLM is a great supporter and racing enthusiest.
Watch for the Modl Builder Mafia decals on their race cars.
But you will have to loook quick - their cars are fast !

a lot of models on display. Mostly cars, but some of our
guys bring planes, ships or scpae ships. You never know.
Plus there are a couple of real cars to check out while
you are walking around. Look for our tent!
