IPMS UK is the society for British scale modellers, and has local branches across the UK. The UK was the founding branch of the IPMS in 1963. All members receive a regular magazine – which was published monthly from 1964 to October 1973, then bi-monthly thereafter. The magazine contains feature articles on all manner of subjects – largely resulting from original research by members – plus kit reviews, news of branches both in the UK and abroad, letters, details of items for sale etc. Aircraft camouflage and markings and modelling features appear frequently.
For most of it’s life the official publication was called ‘IPMS Magazine’, but from 2002 until 2007 it was called ‘The Magazine’ for some reason. The change of name appears to coincide with a change to higher quality glossy paper, allowing colour covers and better reproduction of illustrations. In 2008 commonsense prevailed and the magazine reverted back to its traditional title of ‘IPMS Magazine’. An A4 size publication with 12-18 pages each, illustrated by photos, profile drawings, scale drawings, sketches etc.
