I went to the Wisconsin model car site and registered, but nobody has responded! Are there any clubs in Wisconsin?

There's a Wisconsin model car site??? There are three or four clubs that I know of. One in the Milwaukee area, I think it's called Auto Modelers Group. There is another in the Fox valley, not sure what it's called. I'd have to research the others.

I'm not a member, but the AMG club 'site has almost no traffic and little to no info. :P

IIRC, they meet on the first Friday of every month, but I forget where. You could call Model Empire in West Allis and ask them, as the AMG has a display cabinet there with info about the club.

Terry, the AMG club meets on the first Friday of every month from 6:30 to 9:30pm at the Waterford(stone?) Bank on 27th Street in Oak Creek. PM me and I can get you the exact addy. I've been a member for over 6 years and it's a great club. We also do the Milwaukee NNL every April not too far from you.

Terry,

You should probably e-mail Rick at: rallen@sharontelephone.com and he can tell you all about the club. I hope this helps.

A friend of mine and I stopped & shopped at the Model Empire today in West Allis, as that is my favorite hobby shop when it comes to model cars, and has been for a long time. After leaving there we took a spin up to Brookfield and enjoyed some wings for lunch at Hooters.

The Auto Modelers Group out of Milwaukee has a Facebook page that is updated often. The old website was abandoned due to the fact the guy running it passed away some time ago.

https://m.facebook.com/AutoModelersGroup/

There are pictures posted after every monthly meeting, lots of great builds to look at!

This show is less than two weeks away and we're expecting another great turnout and hopefully 1000 models on the display tables, so c'mon down and bring some of your builds also. There'll be club displays, a giant raffle, a DJ playing some tunes, and there's plenty of restaurants just down the street.
