Welcome Los Angeles Miniaturists!
Founded in 2000 by Rick Johnson, Paul Kemp, Peter Ferk, Marcelo Fuentes, Ken Schwartz, Michael Rodriguez and Jeff Cupernell, LAMs is dedicated to providing a haven for Model Builders and Collectors of all kinds in the greater Los Angeles area.

It’s three primary objectives are:

  •     FELLOWSHIP: Meeting fellow miniaturists who share in a common interest.
  •     EDUCATE:  The secrets of airbrushing, painting realistic faces and the mysteries of “weathering”, are some of the techniques that are shared in the monthly demonstrations.
  •     EDIFY:  Promoting miniatures with interesting exhibits on the well represented “Show and Tell” table.

LAMs is home to a wide variety of talented and creative artisans who, once a month, come together to share ideas, showcase their latest masterpieces and enjoy the company of their fellow miniaturists.  Whether you are a master builder or an enthusiastic hobbyist, LAMs has something to offer.

LAMs is an inclusive organization that promotes

MINIATURES OF ALL KINDS

All are welcome to come and share in the fun.
