IPMS Columbus


Welcome to IPMS Columbus, home of the most enthusiastic scale modelers in central Ohio.
We’re glad you stopped by. Keep scrolling to learn more.


Welcome to the Eddie Rickenbacker Chapter of the International Plastic Modelers Society located in Columbus, Ohio.

We are a diverse and fun group of hobbyists with one thing in common: sharing the joy of the greatest hobby in the world known as scale modeling.

Each month we get together to share ideas, tips, and just have fun. Our club members number approximately 50 and are of all skill levels. We have a variety of interests and build aircraft, armor, ships, figures, sci-fi, Gundam, and anything else you can scratch-build or find a kit for.

Modelers with all skill levels are welcome and meetings are open to visitors so, please drop in. We look forward to meeting you and hope you decide to stick around and join us for the long term.


Our annual model show and contest is back — and better than ever.  We’ll have categories for adults, teens, and youth + special awards, a can’t-miss raffle, vendor showcase, and more.
