About this Chapter

The South West Area Modelers of Plastic are builders of aircraft, auto, armor, figure, ship, sci-fi and warhammer scale models.

Every January, we host the Calcasieu Model Contest and Exposition, CALMEX.  On that Saturday we transform the Managan Center in Westlake, Louisiana in to the state's largest hobby shop.  To register for the contest, go to our website www.ipmsswamp.com.  When you check under CALMEX you'll find contest information and forms, which can be filled out and printed.

IPMS SWAMP, while small in size, has a very big heart.  Every year we donate proceeds from CALMEX to the Children's Miracle Network and provide a donation station for models to give to the Wounded Warrior Project at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas, which aids in the rehabilitation of our proud service men and women.  Through this project, we have also adopted a wounded warrior who spent time at Brooke Army Medical Center and is now stationed at Ft. Polk, Louisiana.
