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  

 

February 2017

The second weekend of February saw the inaugural Bovington Tank Museum Expo show.

One of the features of the table at the show was Bill Simpson's Type VII U-Boat which was for sale, with proceeds to the Hospice. We were approached by representatives of the RAF Davidstow Moor Memorial Museum. They were looking for a U-Boat for their museum, which covers the Battle of the Atlantic.  They had got as far as buying a kit, buit only had the minor matter of building it.

We decided to donate the model to the museum free of charge.  They gave us £10 for the Hospice, anyway.  See  http://rafdavidstowmoormemori.apps-1and1.net/ for details of the museum.

 

Competition gallery and results table are now up to date with February's club meeting. There was also the Antopodean trophy, which was won by Julian Edwards with his Harvard MkII

Second was Sam Wilson with his 1:32 Figure of Australian Imperial Force Private, Gallipolli, 1915. Third was John Constable's Hudson MkIII and fourth was Mark Jowett's Mirage IIIO.
