About IPMS Polska
IPMS Polska was officially registered in spring 2011 and subsequently, in July 2011 was officially accepted in the Global Association of International Plastic Modellers Society consisting of certified IPMS national organisations in more than 40 countries worldwide. IPMS motto is the slogan “By modellers – for modellers”.
IPMS Polska primary objectives are:
propagation and development of scale modelling in Poland;
spreading historical and scale modelling knowledge among school children and teenagers, also knowledge about the Polish state;
supporting research and restoration of technical and military monuments;
promotion of Poland at exhibitions and scale modelling competitions in the country and abroad.
Furthermore, IPMS Polska aims for raising the level of scale modelling to the highest standard and to change public perception from that of a hobby for dilettantes to that of an appreciated art-form.
The aforementioned objectives have been reached through the years as attested by public attendance in various scale modelling domestic and international events.
The main event of the Society is that of its annual exhibition taking place in June in Warsaw.

19.10.2020: Scale modelling events in Poland in 2020 .
We hoped very much for attending the first bigger scale modelling event in Poland in the second half of this year – IVth Scale Models Festiwal in Włocławek which was to be held on 9th and 10th October 2020.
However, to our great regret this event has been cancelled – the direct reason for cancellation has been the regulation of the Ministry of Health on the increase of the alert level throughout the country from 10/10/2020. due to the sharp increase in Covid-19 infections.
Until the end of the year, several other scale modelling events have been scheduled in Poland, however, due to the second wave of the epidemic, it seems unlikely to us that they will take place. The details can be found in the calendar section on this site.
18.10.2020: No more IPMS Austria Go Modelling ???
We have just learned from our Austrian colleagues that IPMS Austria annual scale model show – Go Modelling will not be organised any more. For more information please refer here.
We’re currently all living through something that’s previously unheard of in anyone’s lifetime – a pandemic and some forms of shut-down of many countries to prevent the spread of coronavirus desease.
With regret we have been forced to cancel our modelling events in Poland scheduled for this year. Still, some of them have been converted to on-line contests and shows.
However, we are looking forward to seeing you in great numbers and with lots of models at the scale modelling events in Poland and abroad in better future to come.
In the meantime just obey the local pandemic rules and wait until the danger is past.
We’d like to wish you all well.
Happy modelling to all of you and take care!
It’s a long way to Tipperary…
