With great regret we note the passing of a founder of the Society, Dick Ward.

Dick was rightly celebrated as an aviation researcher, author, and as a designer of  decals, with both his own “Modeldecal” range, and sheets for many  kit manufacturers.

A charming and well-liked character, he will be greatly missed.

Yet more shows for 2018

We now have dates in the diary for West Norfolk IPMS Annual Model Show, Aldingbourne ModelEx, Scale Modelling Now Modelling in a Day Workshops and IPMS Farnborough Modelfest.

Scale ModelWorld 2017 – thank you!

Many thanks to all who exhibited at or visited Scale ModelWorld 2017.    The exact figures are not yet in, but the attendance figures were extremely high.

And a special thank you to all the volunteers who run the show, without whose hard work and dedication Scale ModelWorld would not be possible.

We look forward to seeing you next year at Scale ModelWorld 2018, on the 10th and 11th November, at the same venue!

Day One of Scale ModelWorld “enormous success”

“Scale ModelWorld 2017 has been frenetically busy,” says IPMS(UK) President Paul Regan at the end of the first day.

“We don’t have exact figures yet, but it looks like it is a record breaking show. Traders have reported brisk activity, and the competition has had the highest number of entries since the 50th anniversary show, with over 1100 entries.”

Scale ModelWorld 2017 continues tomorrow, Sunday 12th November.
