" Our Association"

You can visit our association every Friday evening around 8 pm to midnight

History

AA long time ago in a pub in Herentals a three-man-conversation started the foundation what is nowadays known in the scale modeling world as KMK or the blue shirts. KMK stands for Kempense Modelbouw Klub. KMK has raised many great scale modelers this is because KMK believes that there are no secrets in scale modeling and of course enjoying the hobby is important. Every Friday evening around 8 KMK members meet to practice this fine hobby, share techniques, provide positive feedback, drink a beer and have some good laughter. To be honest must members are not members but are friends with the same passion. KMK believes that everybody can practice this hobby and that we need to provide everybody with positive remarks and constructive ideas. KMK practice all disciplines of scale modeling: Aircraft, AFV’s, figures (sculpting and painting), diorama’s, ships, cars, science fiction, trains, … you name it. Everybody is welcome.

The address:
"PC Ten Aard" Vaartstraat 40, 2440 Geel, Belgium

As a club, we organize exhibitions, theme- and demonstration-evenings and even competitions. Each year we even organize a big convention: "Scale World". We also visit many other shows and competitions, in Belgium but also often abroad (England, Germany, Holland, France, Spain, USA,…)
