About Us

SFM:uk is a web-based community of science fiction and fantasy model builders, including horror and the genres in general. Our members here are interested in all aspects of sci-fi and fantasy model building from regular "out-of-the-box" build ups, resin kits, kit-bashing and scratchbuilding. Interests are wideranging and include spaceships, vehicles, figures and mechs. Semi-regular events are organised, including competitions.

Although this site was established for people in the UK as a place to communicate and share information directly related to the UK scene, you are welcome to join regardless of your location. Just please remember the geographical bias that will be presented here.
