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


Under the current circumstances, it has been decide that there will be no opportunity to hold Modelfest this year.
Let us look forward to 2022!

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

 

October 2021

October is a busy month as the club also attended the REME Musueum show in Lyneham. It was a very successful outing as Chris McKee won an award for Best Aircraft in any Scale, Jim Potts won for the Best Diorama and the entire IPMS Farnborough stand won the Best in Show award!!


Upload Gallery for Ocotober is available here.

The usual Zoom meetign was hosted by Andrew while Eric kindly opened his house for an alternative  club meeting venue. Currently, we are not hearing any news from the REC about reopening their clubouse to other clubs, so in the meantime, Eric and Paul are investigating temporary alternative venues so we can actually have a proper club meeting.

The club attended the IPMS Abingdon show on the first weekend of October. It was a slightly busier Abingdon than usual, but the weather was atrocious!
