As the club contact For IPMS CARS in Miniature Model Car Club I want to thank IPMS for all the great help we get from you.

The insurance coverage for all our events, the Make n Takes, Show and Tells and the Model Contests we hold or do, we are a very active club in all of these areas.

The Make n Take program IPMS has in effect is what the club feels is the best tool our club has to bring new members into a club meeting and hopefully join. Both adult and youth level, our family membership plan seems to be the best as it covers everyone in the family. In the last 2 1/2 years the club membership has doubled and is still growing as these new members will tell a friend, so the word gets out rather fast, we feel that this is due to the Make n Take program we follow and use....


We have an exclusive - the first online review of Italeri's Italian Regia Marina Motor Torpedo Boat kit.

2010 USN/USMC/USCG 1/72 Aircraft Kit Survey

J. Michael McMurtrey - skyking918@verizon.net

As 2011 marks the centennial of U.S. naval aviation, aircraft modelers might be interested in this list of US naval aircraft — including those of the Marines and Coast Guard, as well as captured enemy aircraft tested by the US Navy — which are available as 1/72 scale kits. Why 1/72? There are far more kits of naval aircraft available in this scale than any other. Plus, it’s my favorite, in spite of advancing age and weakening eyes.
