About Us

Abingdon IPMS was founded in 1978 and the club consists of 30 members who meet fortnightly on a Tuesday evenings between 20:00 – 22:00 at the

Christ Church Meeting Halls,

Northcourt Road,

Abingdon,

OX14 1PL.

 

We welcome everyone interested in plastic modelling from all parts of the surrounding locality.

Our members, young and old, beginners and experienced modellers, enjoy making all types of scale models including military and civilian aircraft, science fiction figures, modern and vintage vehicles and a wide variety of other kits.

 

At our meetings we display both finished models and others at various stages of development to discuss how the project is progressing and what challenges are emerging. Members enjoy sharing their knowledge and techniques and demonstrations are a regular feature. Every quarter we hold a competition night where finished models are entered.

 

In November every year, we host a stand at the world’s greatest scale model show in Telford where we showcase our projects and contribute entries and judging expertise to the competition team. We also regularly attend other smaller shows around the country and locally. Our own show takes place in Abingdon in the autumn. In addition to attending shows, we organise visits to places of interest both in the UK and abroad to broaden our knowledge of our specialist interest areas. Places we have visited in the past include 

Modelshow at Liden, Germany we also visited Bastogne and other Battle of the Bulge places of interest in 2016.

And for us Southerners we exhibited at the Huddersfield Show in 2017. Very enjoyable friendly show would highly recommend it.

Normandy Beaches, France 2018

Next big visit will be to the WWI battlefields such as the meninge gate, Vimy ridge and the Somme in 2020.
