Welcome to IPMS Lancashire

Please note that due to UK Gov`s restrictions during this COVID-19 pandemic our March & April meetings will be suspended. The committtee will soon review the  situation regarding cancelling May & June`s meetings. We do hope all our members and their families stay safe and well during these trying times. See you all soon.

Hi, we are IPMS Lancashire or IPMSlancs as some members refer to us as. We are a long established friendly model club.

We where previously known as Avrolancs IPMS, the name was changed  in February 2013 to avoid confusion with Avrolancs aviation historical society from which this club originally grew from many years ago. The name IPMS Lancashire was the obvious choice as it reflects the many corners of Lancashire that our members travel from to our meetings.

The club meets on the first Wednesday of each month. We meet at the Canberra Club which is next to the BAe Systems factory site at Samlesbury, nr Preston, Lancashire, just off Junction 30 of the M6.  Please click on our Meetings and Club Diary link on the left for more details.

The club displays at various model shows throughout the year including Cosford, Huddersfield, Bolton and the IPMS (UK) nationals at Telford.

We are always looking to recruit new members, so If you are just a beginner or an experienced modeller and you are looking to join a model club in the North-West, please come along to our meeting and check us out, we would love to meet you.

This Club does function as an IPMS branch, However, you do not need to be member of  IPMS(UK) to join us.

The club now has a Facebook page, please check us out at   IPMS Lancs  

If you are interested in joining us or have any questions please email Rick at ipmslancs@gmail.com

  1. Hello. I am just wondering what are the membership requirements to join. And where about you are located. I am only 18 but with many years of modelling and my own YouTube channel for modelling I think that shows my interest.

    Thank you
    Ivan Taylor

    • Hello Ivan, Thanks for your interest. We meet at the Canberra Club at Samlesbury near Preston on the first Wednesday of each month. There is no requirement to join the club, you only need to be interested in modelling. Please take the time to follow the links on the left and read the pages and find out more about us. It will answer all your questions and you will see more of what we are about and photographs of some of our members models.
      If you have any more questions please contact our Chairman Rick, at ipmslancs@gmail.com

    • Hi Bill, for any further queries about the kitswap could you please email Rick directly at ipmslancs@gmail.com or just just use the link from this websites Kitwap 2017 page. I will pass your request on but Rick needs your email address to email you back confirming your booking, please email him asap. Rick is taking the bookings but is not involved with this website. Please note that his website is not frequently moderated and it was just luck i picked this message up. Regards Dave Morris

      • Hi Charles. Bookings for the kitswap have to be made through our Chairman Rick Greenwood. I can pass this onto him so he can provisionally book you in. You do need to contact him directly on ipmslancs@gmail.com. Rick will then confirm your booking and it`s cost. We also need contact details for you just in case there are any problems. Just one person dealing with this helps avoid any confusion, i hope you understand.
