Black Star Builders - Home

The Black Star Builders is a mob of enthusiasts sharing a passion for building scale models of all kinds. While our primary interest is in flying radio controlled model airplanes (with a special weakness for World War I, Pioneer, and Golden Age replicas), we're also into cars, boats, armored vehicles, trains, etc. You name it, and someone in our group has built a model of one.

Our primary mission is to encourage people to try their hand at building flying models. To this end, we meet monthly at our Builders' Forums (see sidebar at right). At these forums we talk about building techniques, tools, materials, engines, research, history, and much, much more. We exchange information on favorite suppliers, exhibitions, trade shows, and other resources of all kinds.

If you live in Southern California or are in the area on the fourth Monday of any particular month, stop by and join us for a couple hours. You're guaranteed to go away knowing something you didn't know when you came in.

Our Mission: Rebuilding History One Model at a Time.
