Blast - that's the day I arrive in Austin🙁 Still, I'd only end up buying more stuff to fill my luggage for the return trip.

Austin model club puts on show every February. It is really popular and draws a large crowd.



Sorry I didn't notice this sooner, but the Austin show is in October. San Antonio is in February. Also, the Austin AMPS contest is this coming Saturday.

Worked there for a while. Looks like Village Hobby is closed but King's Hobby is still open.

Bob,
I'm not from Austin but I know they have a club there since they hold AMPS events. Here is the contact info they have on their Facebook page. Hope it helps.

Just checking to see if there any modelers in Austin, and if so is there a place to meet?
