International Plastic Modellers Society
IPMS Australia is the second oldest branch of the worldwide IPMS fraternity, having been formed in Melbourne in 1964. The Society caters for plastic model builders with a wide range of interests including aircraft, military vehicles and equipment, cars and trucks, ships, figures and science fiction models. Most members build their models from commercially available kits to which many add various degrees of refinement or modification. Other modellers build their subjects from scratch. Variety is the spice of life and the number of subjects covered by model kits these days is truly staggering. IPMS Australia caters for the lot.
Our membership currently numbers around 100, most of whom live in metropolitan Melbourne but there are a quite a few Victorian country and interstate members and we have several active junior and female modellers in our midst. Individual or family membership is available to all interested modellers.
