    I like the poster. 

    At first I thought it was the one of Ivan!

    If I may say or comment (please don't hate me for it) ... why is IPMS bigger than the name of the club? Any why is the name of the club not written also as SSM.

    Why am I asking? 
    Because the people out there do not know what IPMS and it's better to push the SSM name more into public ears. muxx hekk uhxx.

    Isma my humble opinion... it could be stupid on my part to think like that.

    Noel,

    This comment has cropped up a number of times over the past couple of years so you're not the first one  Very Happy 

    We have to remember that officially we ARE IPMS Malta, the Maltese chapter of this international organisation.  Were it not for a stupid law which existed when the club was established (which prevented the use of 'Malta' when naming any non-governmental organisation) we would have officially used IPMS Malta from the start.  The name SSM was chosen as an alternative until finally the law in question was abolished.

    I understand that since the club was founded, the name SSM has become synonymous with our success and standards, however we also feel that it is high time we promote our 'proper' so to speak identity without loosing our heritage.  Hence IPMS Malta - The Society for Scale Modellers.  I think the name strikes this balance between Identity, purpose and heritage. The IPMS Malta name also has more weight internationally as it is instantly recognisable and has served us well in many ways, even financially.

    Keep in mind that people also tend to associate an exhibition with a venue.  Since we've hosted our event at the Maritime Museum for a number of years, this is also starting to sink in.  We also retain our SSM logo on our shirts (together with IPMS) so people visiting us are making the association between the two.

    I like to look at it as a transitional period.  We will never abandon SSM but we are IPMS Malta.

    Hope this clears things up.

    The IPMS I never understood, Marco.

    For me IPMS was a show in England and I always found it awkward to understand why a club should be called like an international show and up to now I thought the official name was SSM. However, Wayne explained that the original official name is IMPS Malta and the club would like to start using this name and be known as IPMS Malta.

    Excuse my ignorance but I still don't understand the difference between IPMS show and a club that can take the name IPMS. Could it be that IPMS is an umbrella that houses all clubs who register with her? And automatically the club can take the name IPMS? Example IMPS Spain - IPMS Italy etc,...

    If so, where are these IPMS country clubs?  

    But what does IPMS do as a mother club? How does everything tie together?

    Have you thought of setting up an airbrush stand with an easel where visitors can try their hand at airbrushing?

    Just an idea...

    No Dott, but that's a good idea.  I'll take it up with the rest of the committee and see what we can come up with.

    IPMS is like a federation, each country then has a group of people or a club that represents it, hence in areas like UK, Germany, Italy, USA you can find an IPMS chapter representing regions ... in Malta it happens to be our club. During the old times when the club was founded it was forbidden to name a club with Malta included, hence the idea that SSM was born. As such we are just part of the largest federation of international modelling association, finally the function of IPMS is to promote modelling. The mother in Europe is UK, what we gain of being a part is during the Telford expo our club can make a display table and supposedly we used to have an entrance discount ...

    As a club we also are the local representers in the World Soldier Federation, the organisers for World Expo. We are just active members and our function is as voting members in the selection of country of the next upcoming World Expo contenders.

    Clear for everyone issa ...  ;p

    PS, instead of discussing get ready those planes .. maybe we make a display Meet the Fokkers ...
