Hobbyists to meet and support Arizona National Guard Families

ipms logoPHOENIX – The 46th annual National Convention of the International Plastic Modelers/USA Branch (IPMS/USA) will be held at the Phoenix Convention Center Aug. 4-7.  A portion of the proceeds of this event will be donated to the Arizona National Guard Family Assistance Fund.

IPMS/USA is an organization “By modelers, for modelers.”  Founded in 1962, the organization has held the National Convention annually since 1964.  The Convention consists of a model contest, seminars, world’s largest traveling hobby store, and culminates with the Awards Banquet and presentation. 

Over 2,000 models are expected to be entered in the contest.  Models of cars, planes, tanks, ships, and science fiction subjects will be on display. The public is invited to look at the models and shop in the world’s largest traveling hobby store with over 80 sellers.  The cost is $5 and children under 12 are free.  Hours are Friday 9 a.m. – 9 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Promoting the hobby of model building is also a big part of IPMS/USA.  With support from model manufacturer Revell, a make and take event will be held for kids of all ages.  Under the guidance of experienced model builders, novice model builders have the opportunity to build a free model of the Space Shuttle and take the model home.

IPMS/USA has supported deployed troops for several years by providing model kits for the troops.  IPMS/USA chapters regularly send kits and hobby supplies to the hobby clubs in Iraq and Afghanistan.  This year, kits will again be collected to send overseas.  In addition, IPMS/USA will be supporting the families of the Arizona troops at home.  A portion of the general admission ticket revenue will be donated to the Arizona National Guard Family Assistance Fund.
