Our Story

About IPMS

 

IPMS/USA is dedicated to the hobby (and fun) of Scale Modeling. It was started by Jim Sage, of Dallas, Texas, in 1964. There are now branches of IPMS all over the world. Our Local Regions and Chapters sponsor Model shows and contests every year, but you needn't be a member to visit the shows or attend the club meetings!

 

With IPMS/USA Membership, you will receive the outstanding IPMS/USA Journal six times a year, which includes features on all modeling subjects such as aircraft, armor, automotive, ships, figures - you name it! You will also find listings of IPMS contests, swap meets, hints and tips, and reviews.

 

El Paso Scale Model Society

 

Dedicated to promoting and educating others on all facets of the art of scale models, IPMS El Paso was charted as a non-profit organization of the International Plastic Model Society/US Branch in 1970. El Paso Scale Model Society was organized in 1969.

 

Membership is open to all. Meetings are held monthly, normally on the first Sunday of the month at 2:00 P.M. Currently, meetings are located in the Fellowship Hall of St. Paul's United Methodist Church, 7000 Edgemere Blvd. Members will be notified of changes whenever possible.
