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


IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT:
Sadly due to the ongoing COVID-19 shenanigans, REC has closed the club hall for the foreseeable future, so we will have to cancel all monthly meetings until the situation is resolved.
Keep watching for news, and I hope everyone is and remains healthy in this difficult time.

Please check the diary page for updates of the shows we were planning to attend and which have now been cancelled due to COVID-19
