Thanks for this information. I am glad to hear that SIG is still in business and still selling the Cabinair, Tiger, and Monocoupe. The Sig Tiger flew like a dream. FREE FLIGHT KITS - Sig Manufacturing

Greg - Did you ever find out about the IPMS paper models special interest group?

Nope, no response on my original inquiry at this time. 😕

Chris doesn't pop on here very often, so, we may never know.

Next National Convention is in Madison Wisconsin in July 2024 and they've already put out a call for any interested SIGs to set up displays.

Greg
I live 70 mi from Madison and would be happy to help set up a display. I'm not currently an IPMS member, though I belong to two IPMS chapters. I'm willing to renew my nat'l membership if that's what it takes.

I just sent a message to IPMS/USA asking for the process to create a new SIG. I'm happy to take the lead (or help someone else) on this if people here are interested.

So the SIG still shows up in the inactive SIG list on IPMS's website. It also shows Chris G as the contact. I would also be willing to be the contact if there's interest and reactivate the SIG.

As for the Madison IPMS Nationals next year, I am seriously considering attendance. The 2025 Nationals is in Hampton Virginia, so that one is on my radar as well.

Since you've taken the time to contact IPMS direct, let me know if and how they respond.

Greg

Thanks, Greg. I didn't get as far as the "inactive SIG" list. Let me know how I can help.

I just got a message from the IPMS Nationals committee. We now have a table reserved at at Madison next year for the Paper Scale Modeler SIG.

Many thanks for your work on this, David. I will not be able to travel out there, but am glad to know that paper modelers will be represented.
