Welcome to The Earley Risers website


Unfortunately, due to the Lockdown, we are still unable to meet in person. However, to keep in touch each month we have a Virtual Meeting instead.  



All types of models and modellers

We are a bunch of like minded people who get a bit of a buzz out of making plastic models. Some build models straight from the box - or plastic bag, while others like to scratch build and put in lots of details. To give you some idea of the range of models, have a look at our members' biographies and our galleries. We all enjoy the hobby and everyone is happy to talk about their models, or ask for help, swap techniques, or offer encouragement. The Earley Risers Model Club is a branch of the IPMS(UK) as such most, although not all, of our members have IPMS membership.

A Fun Day's Modelling, 10 'til 5pm

The club meets in Earley, on the Southwest side of Reading, usually on the third Sunday of each month. Some members turn up for a full day's modelling (10:00 - 17:00), while others come along anytime during the day, just for a chat. 

If you would like to join us, or find out more about The Earley Risers

Please contact Steve Abbey, or come and see us at any of the model shows we'll be attending during the year.
