Welcome to the IPMS Mt. Diablo Scale Modelers Website, a Region IX chapter of IPMS/USA.
 

Welcome to the website for the Mt. Diablo Chapter of the International Plastic Modelers Society (IPMS). The Mt. Diablo Chapter is located in sunny central California about 30 miles northeast of San Francisco. We serve the San Francisco/East Bay region.

The Mt. Diablo chapter is a club dedicated to the promotion of the hobby of scale modeling. It was founded in 1991 when local modelers decided an IPMS club was needed in the East Bay. Our club caters to many genres of scale modeling from cars, airplanes, armor, ships to historical figures, trains, sci-fi kits as well as gaming, fantasy and resin "garage kits" that include horror, dinosaurs, female figures and so on. We welcome anyone to our meetings, which are fun, care free and informative.

Many of our meetings include a round table discussion where member discuss the models they have brought in and are working on. Often these discussions allow the free exchange of ideas, how to tips and reviews of kits, photo etched sets, decals, and resin after market upgrade. You can bet you will learn a trick or two from our members who have won their share awards and trophies...but remember we are a very loose and care free club where you will not be intimidated if you are new to the modeling scene.

Often our meetings also include a presentation on a particular subject or a specific technique like weathering, dry brushing, pastels, etc. We also host model contests in our area or in co-ordination with the Santa Rosa IPMS Chapter. Many member swap kits as well.

Anyone can attend our meetings and IPMS membership is not needed.
