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:
dissemination 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.

1.01.2022: Scale modelling events in Poland in 2022
We hope very much that none of the scale modelling shows scheduled for 2022 will be cancelled, however, please bear in mind, that organisation of such mass events depends on mitigation of epidemic restrictions. For details please stay tuned and visit the Calendar section of this site or ask directly via Contact section of this site.
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 had been forced to cancel almost all modelling events in Poland scheduled for the first half of 2021. Still, some of them were converted to on-line contests and shows.
However, we hope that the cure for Covid-19 will start efectively working soon and the World will become normal again.
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, stay safe and take care!
It’s a long way to Tipperary…
