The International Plastic Modellers' Society was founded in Great Britain in 1963, by modellers, for the benefit of modellers. It was originally founded as the British Plastic Modellers' Society, but soon expanded into a truly International body with many branches across the world. Society members build anything from basic kits to complicated scratchbuilt models using plastic as the primary medium.
'IPMS Durban' is the local branch in Durban, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa and is affiliated to IPMS South Africa.
There are presently over 9 local IPMS Branches scattered about South Africa. Although members may be scattered far and wide, they try to meet regularly. Wherever they meet, the branch meeting gives everyone a superb opportunity to learn or contribute as much (or as little) as they wish.
IPMS Durban has no class, age, sex, colour or creed barriers to overcome, nor does it lay down any minimum modelling standards for entry. All you need to qualify for membership is to have an interest in model making as a hobby. Newcomers are important to us and are always welcome to visit and join.
The contact point is normally the our Branch Secretary , Steve Harris, who will help you to get to know the other members and tell you more about the Society.
If you are interested in the hobby of model making, you will enjoy the friendliness, enthusiasm and encouragement of like-minded people.
