National Association of Road Transport Modellers (NARTM)

The Manchester group of NARTM meet on the second Monday of each month from 7:30—10:30 to share tips, reviews and information on all aspects of Road Transport modelling.

The National Association of Road Transport Modellers was founded in 1983 to foster the interests of the road transport modeller. Membership of NARTM is open to anyone with an interest in road transport models, whether you collect die-casts, build kits, scratch build, do conversions or run a business supplying products for the modeller.
