Welcome! We’re glad you dropped in to see what’s going on. On this page, you’ll find a link that brings you to a download of a special ‘sampler’ edition of RTRandom Thoughts, the official journal of IPMS Canada. Before you go there, though, please take note of the following…


This idea came about as a way of introducing, or re-introducing modellers to the IPMS Canada of today. For various reasons we’ve lost some ground with membership numbers over the past few years, and we’re looking at innovative ways to get people interested in the organization.


The PDF download is a screen-resolution file, which means it should look very nice on your computer monitor, but the imagery will look degraded if printed out on paper. Rest assured that RT is professionally printed on high-quality paper stock, with imagery and graphics rendered at high resolution. Regardless, the sampler will give you a very good idea of the look of RT and the variety of material we’re bringing to the membership four times a year.


The download contains a selection of articles that have appeared in the first three issues of RT in 2009. We’ve tried to show you what you can expect to see in RT with an IPMS Canada membership. Fortunately, with many good articles to choose from, it was tough for the Editor to decide which ones to include and which ones would not be in the special RT. A regular issue of RT consists of 36 pages, containing 10 to 12 articles. IPMS Canada members write most of these articles, and the content of RT reflects the interests of the membership.


We hope you enjoy the download and consider joining IPMS Canada!

Notice: If you are interested, the articles seen in the Sampler may still be available in their original form as a back issue of RT. However, please note that very few extra issues are now ordered as ‘shelf stock’, just waiting for someone to order them someday. (We’re really trying not to be in the back issue business)
