The Roscoe Turner chapter of the International Plastic Modelers Society (IPMS) was founded in 1970 by 6 members, several of whom are still active with the club today. One of those ‘old heads’ even designed the 1/48 Monogram TBF Avenger. Beginning with meetings held in the original charter members’ homes, today the club has expanded greatly and our monthly meetings are a wonderful place to gather and talk about the hobby. Here you’ll find people of all kinds whose interests vary from aircraft to armor to sci-fi and more.
With the aim of promoting the hobby, the club has successfully held several regional conventions and even hosted the IPMS National Convention in 1988. We have put on an annual Invitational Contest and Swap Meet since 1993, and it is now the largest in the Midwest.
