The IPMS Group Build for 2019 will be "Mustangs." There are only a few rules:
- Your model must be started and completed in 2019.
- If it is a plane, it must be 1/48 scale.
- If it is an auto, it must be 1/24 - 1/25 scale.
- If it's a horse, scale is whatever it is :)
We'd like EVERYONE to build something. We are more interested in the number of modelers than in the number of models. This build is open to anyone who wishes to join in, member or non-member of IPMS Richmond.
There is no plan for a display, although it might be nice to see them all at our Christmas dinner meeting.

If you haven't run across this fine article yet, please take the time to read it--a thoughtful, well-written article on the future of our hobby, in general, and the merging of the "classic scale modeling" and "Gundam" worlds, in particular. Thank you, Jon Bius!
