You have opened IPMS Nymburk website belonging to a plastic modeller´s club from the Czech Republic. The town of Nymburk finds itself in Central Bohemia. We are dozen of guys mainly interested in plastic models both wartime and post-war aircraft. Apart from this, one fellow is focused on helicopters. The prevailing and most favourite scale we deal with is 1/48. However, there can be seen 1/72 scale models in our collections. If you wanted to examine our work you could visit the model galleries and take a look at images of our models. Some of them have become winning at significant competitions both in the Czech Republic and abroad, IPMS (UK) SCALE MODELWORLD included.
There are galleries of:
1/48 scale wartime aircraft, a Natural Metal Finish specialist
1/48 wartime aircraft, also NMF is seen
1/72, 1/48 and 1/32 WWII aircraft
1/48 & 1/72 helicopters and jets
1/48 & 1/72 wartime superdetailed aircraft
1/48 & 1/72 World War One aircraft
Superdetailed WWI aircraft. Although captions are written in Czech only it is really worth visiting this page.
Our club was established in January 1996. The reason for the establishment was to gather people sharing the same interest in the Nymburk region, to join the Czech plastic modeller´s association on a regular basis and to be registered as an official IPMS Czech Republic subject. We also wanted to set up contests in the town of Nymburk and attract people to this wonderful and, hopefully, everlasting hobby. The contests are held annually in the first half of November and everyone is cordially welcome to take part in. A presentation from the latest contest held in November 2010 in pdf format can be seen here; video here then.
We have also prepared for you several articles written in English. They deal with model building processes and reports from contests held within the Czech Republic.
If you would like to be more interested in finding out what we are usually aimed at or how a model displayed in the galleries was constructed, what sets were used and how went work with them you could contact us. We are ready to answer your comments and willing to share our experience.
