About this Chapter

IPMS Washington DC is one of the oldest IPMS chapters. We have members from Maryland, Virginia and Washington, DC. Our members range from beginners to expert who've enjoyed this hobby for well over 30 years. Whether you consider yourself a beginner or an experienced modeler, and no matter what your interests in model subjects might be, we are for you!

We hold a meeting each month to allow model builders such as yourself to get together with people from all walks of life who have one common bond - they enjoy building scale models. Our meetings include a contest for modelers to display their work and compete with others. We also spend time discussing all the latest modeling news and hold a raffle of donated kits. During each meeting there is a special program. Sometimes it may be a guest speaker who provides current information and historical perspective on our modeling subjects (past speakers have been famous authors, war veterans, and museum curators). Other times we have basic and advanced techniques demonstrations, or maybe a slide show of subjects related to modeling (such as military aircraft or race cars). There are also vendors who attend the meeting and sell kits, books and supplies
