Important Notice 

Hello NCMSS Friends and Members


The NCMSS Washington Show Committee and club leadership regrets to announce that after careful consideration we have decided to cancel the September 26, 2020 NCMSS Washington Show at the Springfield Hilton venue. Current state and local restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic would have an adverse effect on the type and quality of show we were planning to host. Likewise, rather than risk the health and safety of our members and show attendees, we will instead focus our efforts on providing some virtual alternatives along with a superb and expanded show in 2021.


Although NCMSS is not going ahead with a big in-person event this year, we are exploring ideas for a possible virtual version later this year along with other hobby-related activities that we can host.  In the meantime, stay tuned!  Our Club Facebook pagev and this website are good sources for information for future events and meeting information.


Hope to see everyone soon if even “virtually” and stay safe.  All our best!

About Us

The National Capital Model Soldier Society (NCMSS) is a membership supported club which provides the military miniatures hobbyist with a means to exchange ideas, information and reference materials. Located in and principally supporting hobbyists in the Washington, DC metropolitan area, NCMSS provides an opportunity for figure painters as well as collectors of miniature figures, toy soldiers, plastic models and militaria to meet socially and exhibit their work. We hold monthly meetings, sponsor regular painting clinics, publish a monthly newsletter and host a major annual regional military miniatures exhibition.

The NCMSS has been in existence for more than 50 years and is one of the premier military miniature clubs on the East Coast of the United States.


Corona Virus (COVID-19) Update

All Fairfax County Schools are closed for the remainder of the current semester; facility availability during the summer is also uncertain, along with future social distancing rules. Therefore, our next club meetings at least through the summer will be conducted virtually via the Zoom Web Conferencing Platform.   Our last meeting in April was conducted successfully in this manner. Further information can be found under the Meeting Info and Schedule Tab above.
