IPMS Vancouver Fall Show 2012

  • move
introduction
IPMS Vancouver is one of two chapters in the lower mainland, the Fraser Valley Chapter being the younger sibling. Although IPMS is often associated with contests in the mind of the uninitiated modeller, the club actually exists to give modellers a place to meet and share their knowledge and enjoyment of their hobby. IPMS Vancouver allows modellers to meet with others that take their hobby seriously. The club meetings focus on allowing members to learn, to share and to inform others of techniques, background information or news within the hobby. Many members bring models, complete or in progress, to the meetings. In contrast, many members are not comfortable bringing their projects into the club. This does not mean that their model is of a lesser caliber than those that appear, but rather that the modeller may be too self-conscious to bring something of his to a meeting. Regardless, modellers of both types are appreciated and encouraged within the club. From the IPMS Vancouver webpage.
the show
October 6th, 2012 was the 42nd annual show. Well over 400 models were on display. Since Aeroscale is focused on aircraft, this page of our feature will showcase everything that flies. In addition to the traditional plastic, there was a selection of Balsa and tissue models, including an impressive B-24 in 1/33 scale.

Looks like you put a lot of effort into covering this event Jessie; Thanks for the article. The Early Aviation Category doesn't seem to have been well represented; I may have to consider a trip next year to fix that! Did like the Canadian "captured" DVII though....... Cheers, Lance

There were very few early aviation subjects entered this year. Bishop's Nieuport and Brown's Camel made their almost obligatory appearance, there was one WNW Albatros and a few '30s airliners which just about filled the bill. We do need some early aviation representation (and since the competition is so light, there's a good chance you'd take home a ribbon).
