The IPMS: international brotherhood of the scale model world

Here’s a heads-up for any keen plastic kit builder – you needn’t be alone, for the International Plastic Modellers’ Society (IPMS) is host to your hobby.

The IPMS was established more than half a century ago, in 1963, as the British Plastic Modellers’ Society. In the years since then, the IPMS has grown to become a huge international organization, and there are few countries that don’t have local branches that you can join.

It’s a real ‘band of brothers’ for model makers that stretches around the world. Visit the IPMS USA here and IPMS UK here.
