Welcome to IPMS Gateway !!!

The Gateway Chapter IPMS was formed by a small group of St. Louis area modelers in late 1975, and received its IPMS/USA charter in 1976. Meetings were held in a small room at the Des Peres Hobby Shop, with Del Miller as the Club's first president. Since then, the Club has grown to sixty or seventy members.

Club sponsored activities include a variety of model contests at monthly meetings, model displays, kit raffles, swap meets, an annual banquet and an annual picnic. The common interests among club members have created "Road Trips" to various modeling conventions, as well as to air shows and museums throughout the country.

You will find many benefits as a member of IPMS Gateway. They include admittance to all club functions (including business meetings), and also eligibility to enter all local club contests. You will also receive the monthly newsletter, THE ARCH SCALER NEWS, delivered to your home or e-mail inbox before the general club meeting. Club membership is honored at area hobby shops with some shops providing small discounts on purchases to members. Hobby shops require you show your current membership card to receive your discount.

Of course there are many intangible benefits from belonging to IPMS Gateway, such as sharing of modeling techniques, reference materials, trips, kit swapping and, in general, the camaraderie of friends who share your enjoyment of plastic modeling and the subjects modeled. I hope you enjoy your membership and invite you to participate in all club activities.
