The International Plastic Modellers' Society (IPMS) consist of local chapters and national branches of hobbyists interested in building Plastic model kits. The first branch was established in the United Kingdom in 1963.

These chapters usually organise regular meetings or attend events of interest such as air shows.

Within each branch, Special Interest Groups (SIG) are formed which focus on a specific area or type of model building, for instance aircraft or science fiction figures.
