IPMS London was formed in 1980 by a group of hobbyists in London, Ontario, Canada. We are dedicated to promoting plastic scale modelling of all genres and providing a forum for modellers of all ages and abilities to meet and exchange ideas, information, and other ‘stuff’.
We meet on the 3rd Wednesday of the month at the Beacock Public Library, 1280 Huron St, London, Ontario, N5Y4M2 (map). Dates and times are published on the News page of this site, on the Events calendar, and on our Facebook page.
Each meeting, we hold a seminar or other major event, have a show and tell where members bring out their newest models and latest acquisitions, exchange information regarding models, references, and techniques, and more.
We also have an informal build night “every Wednesday but Meeting night” at St. Mark’s Anglican Church, 1320 Wilton Ave, London, Ontario, N5W 2H6 (map).
