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.

We have hardly gone past 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 2021 and many of those in 2022. Still, some of them were converted to on-line contests and shows.
However, it seems the World has become normal again but we will have to live together with the disease as it is now and we are aware of the fact that we may need to obey the pandemic rules again.
Still, we are looking forward to seeing you in great numbers and with lots of models at the scale modelling events in Poland and abroad.
We’d like to wish you all well.
Happy modelling to all of you, stay safe and take care!
