We are the Gainesville, FL chapter of the International Plastic Modelers Society (IPMS).


Since 1991, we have shared a common interest in all aspects of scale miniatures and welcome anyone who enjoys building models regardless of the subject. Our members build cars, aircraft, figures, dioramas, tanks and everything else in plastic, clay, wood, and metal. 

We meet the third Tuesday of every month where every member has a chance for a free model, two chances if you bring in a completed model that month. We give presentations on a wide range of topics from demonstrating best techniques to presenting historical information.

There will be a live meeting for those who wish to meet and there will be a Zoom option for those not comfortable meeting in-person. We will send the Zoom link to club members, if you are not a member but would like to sit in, let us know via our Contact Us link and we will send you an invitation too.
