Modeling the Arsenal of Democracy

Welcome back to Omaha.  For many of you this is your fourth IPMS National in Omaha. The third in the last eleven years.  The members of IPMS Ft. Crook are proud to share their home with you again.  We have planned a great convention full of models, vendors, and friends.  Our convention is “right sized” and almost everyone you meet will be a modeler. We know you will have the same marvelous experience you had Returning to Omaha Beach, relaxing at Omaha by the Sea or Going Downtown.

This year we are Modeling the Arsenal of Democracy. Recognizing those marvels of American ingenuity that have preserved freedom around the world, the P-51 Mustang, the F-4 Phantom and the Sherman tank to name a few.  2022 is also the 75th anniversary of the United States Air Force as well as the 45th anniversary of Star Wars. The diversity of our hobby means we will see models recognizing all these events and many others.

As modelers we celebrate events by recreating history in miniature for all to see and remember.  Whether it is a pristine F-22 Raptor, a war weary Grumman Wildcat, a race winning Indy car or a dusty M3 Stuart. We gather in Omaha to share the enjoyment of recreating history and discussing our craft with fellow modelers.

On behalf of the members of the Fort Crook Chapter, IPMS/USA and the many volunteers from other chapters helping us make sure your stay is enjoyable, we welcome you to Omaha and the 2022 IPMS/USA National Convention.
