International Model Boat Show (Warwick) - 2017
« on: August 07, 2017, 12:53:57 PM »

Regarded as one of the UK’s leading marine modelling exhibitions.
The International Model Boat Show is the only 3-day marine modelling exhibition dedicated to all aspects of marine modelling - an event not to be missed! It is widely regarded as one of the UK’s leading marine modelling exhibitions and takes place from Friday 10th to Sunday 12th November at the Warwickshire Exhibition Centre.

Organisers are expecting 3000+ visitors, who will be able to enjoy in excess of 600 models from over 25 clubs and societies, where some of the finest marine models will be on display. The excellent and varied displays include everything from early warships to modern power boats – all of which will be complemented by action on the large indoor boating pool.

There will be more than 20 specialist suppliers present, offering visitors everything they could need for their boat and modelling needs and attendees will be able to view new technologies and buy newly available products.

Exhibitors will once again be vying for the prestigious ‘Society Shield’, which is voted for by the clubs and societies themselves and will be awarded to the best club display in the show – will King Lear Model Boat Club retain their title for a second year?

Final Countdown to the International Model Boat Show – Get Ready To Set Sail

The International Model Boat Show 2017 returns to the Warwickshire Exhibition Centre Friday 10th to Sunday 12th November 2017.

It’s the final countdown to the launch of the 2017 International Model Boat Show which will take place from Friday 10th to Sunday 12th November at the Warwickshire Exhibition Centre.

Over 3,000 visitors are expected to attend the show and enjoy over 600 models on the club and society displays.  Over 20 of the leading specialist suppliers will also be present.

Exhibition Manager, Avril Spence said “We are looking forward to welcoming our visitors to one of the UK’s leading marine modelling exhibitions the show this year.  Along with all the normal attractions and suppliers for visitors to enjoy and meet there will be a Tamiya Truckin display arena.

As always the large indoor boating pool will be in full use as all the club members sail their models for the visitor’s enjoyment.  Some clubs demonstrate as a group such as the RNLI with commentary which visitors find is really interactive and enjoyable.  The Surface Warship Association will again lead a poignant sailing tribute at the poolside during the two minutes silence on Remembrance Day.
For younger visitors there will be ‘children’s sailing’ on the pool for their own experience of remote control boating.

As the ONLY 3 day marine modelling exhibition dedicated to all aspects of marine modelling this is an event not to be missed – book your tickets NOW to take advantage of the specially discounted rates (see www.modelboatshow.co.uk).

Hi Everyone ...........  in just over a week it will be time for 2017 International Model Boat Show. Whether you are an exhibitor, trader or a visitor to the show I look forward to seeing you at Poolside.
If you intend to participate in the pool activities don't forget to check in with me for a frequency & time allocation (27 & 40 Mhz). We have the gang from the Tamiya Trucking Crew with us this year and a few of their models will be on 40 Mhz, therefore co-ordination and co-operation is imperative. We have worked together many times before and I don't envisage any problems.
Even if you're not sailing do come to the poolside and say Hi. It's always great to put names to faces.
Hope you all enjoy yourselves and have a great show. O0

Hello Phil ......... nice to hear you typing. Look forward to seeing you in a couple of days.
I would love to have some steam boats on the pool ..... so anyone reading this who has a steam boat, come and see me at poolside. We might be able to organise a chuffing regatta  :-)) %) {-) %% (smiling wotsits just for Phil)
Cheers

Hello Steve, Bonjour Phillipe comment allez-vous?,

Reading your postings about steaming on the pool and my dilemma is -

3 weeks ago I'd sadly written off any thoughts of going to this years show, due to an exasperating - putting it politely,
ongoing shoulder injury, being unable to sit in a car - let alone drive the thing,
fortunately 'ealths improved a little and I now hope to be at the show.

I've had requests to bring Wallace and Gromits steam paddler to the show after its appearance in last months
Model Boats magazine and could go for a steam around the pool, water conditions (calm) permitting.

Problem is, thinking I would not be going to the show,
I've not booked in/insured etc my models with Merridienne via King Lear Club as previous years.

Any thoughts guys before I reach for the phone to Meridienne of how I might gain entry with a boat etc?

regards Paul

End of day one!


Think I managed to get away from the Wickies stand for about 20mins for lunch! So many wanted to talk!
Didn’t have time to buy much or play pranks on Phil! Met up with plenty of Mayhemers. Here’s to day 2!


And guess who charged his camera but didn’t put in a memory card!?! %)


Well done to Baloo and King Lear MBC for retaining their crown for best club stand. :-))
And if you’re umming and arrrring about coming I have just seen a stunning 1/72 scale Warspite and her rival Zara being built by Colin Vass- truly amazing and I had to wipe the drool off! :embarrassed:
