About the Poole Vikings

Hello and welcome to the official website of the Poole Vikings Model Club. We are IPMS Dorset and BMSS Dorset, and you will see us visiting a variety of model shows each year, in addition to staging our own model show in Poole, Dorset.

Details of our latest show can be found elsewhere on this website.

We are an IPMS (UK)and BMSS affiliated club and we are twinned with the French model club AMV 83 based in Toulon. Our club meets on the First Wednesday of each Month at the Broadstone British Legion, Tudor Road, Broadstone, Dorset, BH18 8AW from 19.30hrs (click here for a map). Our members come from all walks of life and ages range from 12 years and upwards. Their specialties cover most aspects of plastic modelling, ranging over AFVs, Aircraft, Motor Vehicles, Ships, Figures, Sci-Fi, Etc. Although we are a Poole Dorset based society we have members from as far away as Warminster and the New Forest. Amongst our members are a number of National Championship Class Winners, but we welcome members of all levels of experience and ability. Competitions are held monthly and each year the club puts on one of the finest model shows in the south of England.

Due to illness the webmaster and creator of this website, John Levesley, has handed temporary control to myself, Malcolm V Lowe, the acting chairman of the Poole Vikings. You can find my own website here –

We wish John well and a speedy recovery.
