Independent Modelers Association (IMA) was founded in 2019 by Bob and Kathy Kozak with the intention to share their passion of model/miniature building with the community. The mission of IMA is to encourage model building for everyone regardless of age, gender, skill level or subject; just build it, paint it, show it!
Bob, founder of IMA, has been building models since the dawn of time. He wants to share his passion and experience with those interested, especially his grandkids.
Kathy, co-founder of IMA, thrives off seeing others learn and grow through this hands-on hobby. She supports Bob's passion for model building and is always there as an extra set of hands to hold pieces together.
Maloree is a photographer, graphic designer, Ravenclaw, content creator, mom of one, Hot Wheels expert, and soda connoisseur. She uses her marketing expertise and artsy abilities to help share the benefits of modeling with the IMA.
