IPMS Columbus – Eddie Rickenbacker Chapter
Welcome to the website of the Columbus, Ohio, Eddie Rickenbacker chapter of IPMS. We as a club are dedicated to the promotion of the hobby of scale modeling. Our meetings feature modeling subjects and programs covering all areas and genres of the hobby. Our meetings are open to visitors (see the meetings page for directions and maps) and feature a monthly contest.
The IPMS Columbus Chapter was named in honor of Columbus, Ohio native Eddie Rickenbacker, the United States’ ranking ace in World War I. Chartered in 1965, IPMS Columbus is a strong, active chapter which hosted the 1973 National Convention, and numerous Region 4 Regionals. Most recently we hosted the 1997 IPMS National Convention, the 2000 Region 4 Convention and the 2009 IPMS National Convention.
We have approximately 50 members, with widely ranging interests and skills. For a list of members follow the link at the foot of this page.
We enjoy all aspects of scale modeling, and invite anyone to join us at our monthly meetings, where we exchange modeling tips, information, kit reviews, and general fellowship. For information on where we meet click here. We have a wide variety of interests, including aircraft, armor, cars, ships, figures, and many other modeling subjects.
