Welcome to the new look IPMS Farnborough website! This new version  has been designed to be as easy to maintain as possible, plus the photo galleries have undergone a major revamp so that you can see larger, clearer photos of the subjects in the monthly meeting competitions. I am also hoping that we will be able to update and expand the Reference section.

The gallery contains photos from the past meeting currently only back to Februrary 2011. I am hoping to extend this further back as time goes on so we have a good record from the past, but this does involve cataloging several hundred, if not thousands, of older pictures, so it might take a while!

Please bear with us if the occasional link within some pages doesn't work properly - a site with as much content as this has can take a little while to settle down after such a large revamp.

January 2012

January club night is always one of the highlights of the IPMS Farnborough year featuring the ‘Model of the Year’ contest. This year 50+ models were entered, representing the very best work of the club members across all scales and classes. As ever, the competition was close and keenly contested. After much debate members voted Mark Chisholm’s "Road to Malmedy" Model of the Year for 2011 - congratulations Mark!

Mark Chisholm  - “Road to Malmedy" - Model of the Year 2011

Mark’s wonderful diorama captures a moment from the ‘Battle of the Bulge’, Germany’s final offensive on the Western Front during the bitter winter of 1944/5. An American GI stands guard by a disabled Panther Ausf.G disguised with tinplate and paint to resemble a U.S. Army M10 Gun Motor Carriage.

Mark’s model will represent IPMS Farnborough at the Nationals in November.
