IPMS SALISBURY is your local plastic modelling club.  It meets every First and Third Tuesday each month at Dennis Marsh House, The Scout hall on Cold harbour lane, Salisbury  From 19.15 to 21.30 new members welcome.


For the last 5 years SALISBURY MODEL CENTRE has hosted and edited IPMS Salisbury's Club web pages on the Salisbury Model Centre website. The club's web presence has grown to the point that they now have an independant web site. I will keep some representation of the local club on my site but anything IPMS Salisbury related in future will appear primarily on their own webpages including future events. Please have a look.....

IPMS SALISBURY BLOG

26 March A bit of a look back today, caused by those odd moments when things are not quite as they seem.  First up a picture that you may remember, Richards winning entry for a previous Revell contest, his distressed Merc. Well with life imitating art i've followed his picture with a photo from the 'Business Insider' of a real life Mercedes barn find that looks very similar. And lastly a simple picture of my JU87 Stuka Diorama taken during a show.  The hall back drop seems to be in scale looking like a hanger diorama.  Enjoy.

Club Chairman Richard Clarke.

 I've been a member of Salisbury IPMS for about 3 years but really started kit building when 17 years old.  I began modelling armour but now find figures and rusty autos to be my main interest. The Revell 540k Mercedes  is my favourite model so far.

Bill Allan.

 I've been a member of Salisbury IPMS for 15 years joining with Peter.  I am hugely interested in US Naval aviation from the 1950s onwards however my first model at 9 was the classic blue plastic Airfix Spitfire in a poly bag. My favourite model is the 1/48 Skywarrior that I invested a lot of time and scratch building in.

Colin Whitehouse.

 I've been a member of Salisbury IPMS for 4 years. I find all subjects interesting but especially enjoy 1/48 British post war jets. My first model as a boy was an Airfix Golden Hind ship and staying with ships my favourite build so far was Tamiya's 1/350 Enterprise as it took so much time to complete. I really enjoy the club and seeing the varied models members are building, it is great for encouragement.

Dec 'Sibo' Sibley.

 Becoming a member of IPMS Salisbury really increased my build rate as the themes and various challenges help keep me focused and seeing the work of others is a great stimulus. I enjoy armour modelling and building dioramas but also produce a lot of Sci-fi models too. I like mixing models with photography to get realistic pictures.

Nick Williamson.

My main interest is Fleet Air Arm Aircraft though I have been building since I was seven starting out on Matchbox kits as a boy in London. I now live in the Chalk Valley and combine modelling with a role in the Air Cadets.

Mick Ellis.

 I've been a member for about 8 years, starting out with an interest in modern armour but really specializing in Anti Aircraft vehicles many of which are resin kits. That said if something takes my interest i'll build it and Tamiya's Mogami warship is one of my favorite builds.

Paul Capon.

I had been building and painting 28mm wargame figures for a long time and wanted a change of pace. Since joining IPMS Salisbury I have worked on a number of Soviet projects in various scales.

Brian Rose.

 I have been a Long time member of IPMS Salisbury and was the club Chairman for a number of years. I enjoy the mix of members and seeing what they produce. My main interest is modern armour especially vehicles of the IDF.

John King.

 I joined IPMS Salisbury only recently after learning about it from the local model shop.  I am a keen AFV builder but have found club membership has spurred me on to do more challenging builds with a diorama my next project.

Steve Saville.

I have been a Long serving member of IPMS Salisbury and hold the position of Club Treasurer. I mostly make aircraft, though my output is slower than I'd like.

Mike Hobbs.

I joined the club after meeting Bill Allan, I had been a lone modeller until then but now enjoy the friendly club. We have competitions ( my Arado E555 for the Revell build in 2016 is my current favourite) but the members are not competitive or elitist which I really like. It's well worth the 45 min drive I take from Somerset.

Peter James.

  My modelling interests span Japanese aviation, Luftwaffe and 1/35 Armour up to 50's. My first kit was an Aurora B47, but Tamiya's 1/48 Japanese Seiran is my favourite built model so far. In 2016 I shall be moving away from Salisbury after 17 years as Secretary but look forward to continued modelling in Norfolk.
