About the club

We are a group of people who enjoy the hobby of plastic model building. Our members interests range from Aircraft, Automobiles, Ships, Figures, Armour, to Sci Fi. We have all skill levels from beginners to some pretty talented modellers, but we mainly meet to share our work, ideas, tips and techniques, and talk about modelling in general.

IPMS St. John's 2015 Model Show and Competition

IPMS St. John's would like to thank everyone who attended and competed in the 2015 Model Show and Competition on Sunday Oct 25, to make it one of the most successful shows in recent years.

The quality of work was great and it shows the amount effort put into the kits. It is also great to see the interest in the hobby in our area. It was commented on more than once that it was great to see so many younger folks taking up the hobby, we had more Juniors in attendance and competing than ever before.It was also very encouraging to see the amount of entries in the contest triple overall from last year!

Thanks go out to Club members who hosted the public and acted as ambassadors of the club. There were many stories, pieces of advice, and hints and tips shared. Great job everyone!

I would like to thank our local hobby shop - Signal Hobbies - for their support of the show and helping in spread the word. We are grateful to them for supplying Best in Show prize. Thanks Fred and Aune. It was great to see you at the show.

Thanks to Club members and the many Friends of the Club for sharing on their social media to spread the word wider than ever before.

It was a great show, we are proud to help the modeling community come together for a day of sharing all of the projects and related stories. We had people come from as far away as Grand Falls (4.5 hrs drive) and Carbonear (1.5 Hrs) just to be at the show. So glad you could share your work with all of us.

Our Club always welcomes new members no matter what skill level, what age or model interest. If you would like more information about the Club, please email us at ipms.sj@gmail.com

Until next year - Keep Building!!!!
