2006 IPMS Submarine Models - They have targets, too...

Static Submarine modelers unite!

Here's the links to have a look at the 2006 IPMS convention and the sub models on display there. Looks as if one of the FX Models NR-1 kits may have made it to the show!

IPMS Sub models-2
NR-1 model
The NR-1 is listed as 1/144 scale.

BTW, we (that is to say, The SubCommittee) were listed as an "inactive" Special Interest Group by IPMS. After conferring with our Supreme Commander, Tim Smalley, I have reactivated us, will act as liason, and would urge our members to have a look at the new IPMS Journal. This month's features a really nice build of the RoG Type VII, complete with extra goodies. The IPMS Journal just took a huge step up, and looks much more like Fine Scale Modeler these days. Consider submitting an article and pictures to the IPMS Journal (as well, of course, as to our own SCR!!). It's a great recruitment tool for us!

Tom - Do you know if the NR-1 model actually is the FX 1/72 kit or something else that really is 1/144?

Thanks, Barry

Oops - See now that it comes from Combat Subs. Should have looked at the bigger photo first.
