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
IPMS Romsey had their first show on 16th July. It was a small intimate show, with only about half a dozen clubs abd a few traders, but the atmospher was good and we get on well witht he Romsey folks ao in our considered opinion it was a success.
RAF Odiham famailies day is a regular spot in our show calendar and the weather held fair for us on 21st July. We had many interested visitors with the parents supplying the "don't touch" manatra to the excited children!
June 4th Was the IPMS Salisbury ahow. The table was well filled as can be seen here

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)
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...
