IPMS Farnborough

Welcome to the IPMS Farnborough Model Club

We specialise in static scale models made from plastic construction kits, but welcome and encourage all forms of modelling

In this site we describe our hobby, our club and its meetings, and the various shows and events around the country where we exhibit our models

We also have information on our annual show, Modelfest, and some real-world reference material

11th April saw the monthly club meeting, this time with the added pleasure of the AGM!  The Treasurer presented the accounts for the year ended 31/3/16, and after discussion it was decided to £2,000 to the Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice and £500 to the British Heart Foundation (proposed John Tucker, seconded Jim Potts)
 
Toby Knight stepped down from the role of Treasurer, and was replaced by Ian Williamson.  The club gave thanks to Toby for his work in this role.
 
It was also decided that the Committee should explore the idea of having a different form of meeting, at which there could be talks or demonstrations.
 
Meeting photos and competition results will be added shortly...

9th April was Poole Vikings show, some of the usual suspects showed up as nromal, inclusing Jim in his new Farnborough shirt! The show was good and a visit to two model shops in the town was the icing on the cake!

3rd of April saw us heading north to RAF Cosford for the IPMS Shropshire model show. We were in our now usual place just inside Hanger 2, opposite TSR 2. With no orange juice spills, but just one beer accident, the evening before went well. The show was up to its usual standard and the weather held, so it was possible to walk to Hanger 1 and not get blown backwards by the wind as last year!

A good assortement of models on the table...
