The Alexander Lippisch Chapter was named Region 5 Chapter of the Year in 2012 and 2014.
The U.S. is grouped into 13 local regions. Our Club is in Region 5. The local regions and chapters sponsor model shows and contests every year. You don’t have to be a member of IPMS/USA to attend club meetings or attend and enter most local show.
With membership in IPMS/USA, you receive the impressive and informative IPMS/USA Journal six times a year. This magazine has articles on various types of modeling subjects, including aircraft, armor, ships, automotive, figures, sci-fi, etc. There is also information about local club contests, along with kit, book and tool reviews, hints and tips.
Membership at the Adult level in IPMS/USA is only $25 per year or $49 for two years.
Membership in the IPMS/USA also saves you $5 on our club dues. So, instead of $25 per year; your club dues are only $20.
