This weekend will be IPMS-UK Armorama's first public outing at the show in Telford. For those there you may have seen our table manned in part by Mal Mayfield. Mal has done a Herculean job with starting and organizing this new IPMS-UK branch for online users without a club of their own.
Welcome to the new IPMS-UK Armorama club site. This site is dedicated to all types of model making and will be a home for the Armorama Branch of IPMS-UK. I am actually writing this on Friday and this site has yet to officially "roll out" but we know that many of you will be coming here through word of mouth and to see what this virtual branch is all about. Mal has started a few posts in the forum to get things started and I encourage everyone to join in and discuss what you'd like to see from this site and the club. We are still hammering out the details but we would like to offer club members additional gallery space and their own place to call home on the net. This site is an obvious extension of Armorama, running on the same engine and database, however it will have it's own staff and leadership apart from Armorama.com or Armorama.co.uk. Users will be able to contribute news, reviews, or features much like they can on Armorama, and those given the chance will be able to "syndicate" their work on either site so that it will be seen on both.
Mal and I hope you will join in this little experiment and see what kind of online IPMS club we can make here.
