INTERNATIONAL MODEL BOAT SHOW –2012
« on: July 31, 2012, 05:25:44 pm »


INTERNATIONAL MODEL BOAT SHOW – 9TH TO 11TH NOVEMBER 2012


All hands are on deck preparing for The International Model Boat Show which is returning to the Warwickshire Exhibition Centre
(near Leamington Spa) from 9th – 11th November 2012.

Visitors are guaranteed a packed hall with over 600 models on the club and society displays, demonstrations plus attendance by
leading specialist suppliers.  Over 3000 visitors are expected to attend the show which is now regarded as one of the premier
model boat show in the UK.

There are 27 confirmed clubs, societies and demonstrations attending this unique exhibition with some of the finest marine models
on show. Visitors will also have the opportunity to purchase whatever they need from the vast range of products offered by the
comprehensive selection of over 20 specialist suppliers, everything from a single anchor to an entire kit.

The excellent and varied display of models from early warships to modern power boats and ships is complemented by action on the
large boating pool. The Surface Warship Association will again lead a poignant sailing tribute at the poolside during the 2 minutes
silence on Remembrance Day and for younger visitors there will be ‘children’s hour’ at the poolside between 1pm and 2pm over
the weekend.

To celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee year the amazing Royal Spithead Naval Review will be on display.  The display, by Jack Snary,
comprises nearly 600 1:1200 scale model ships covering 3000 years of maritime history, from ancient Egypt to the latest Type 45
destroyer HMS Daring.  Both Britain’s Royal and merchant Navies are represented, as well as vessels from 25 other nations.  At the
exhibition Jack will be giving live demonstrations showing the construction methods involved in scratch building a model in 1:1200 scale
from plastic. 

New this year will be a demonstration by John Hanson who will be showcasing his skills in construction using aluminium.  Aluminium
can be pre-bent to shape and when heat is applied will keep its shape without adverse tension and can produce realistic looking models.

The prestigious ‘Society Shield’, which is voted for by the clubs and societies themselves, will again be awarded to the best club display
in the show along with the ‘Best Boat in Show’ award which is awarded to the model receiving the most votes from visitors to the
show.

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 which is only available until 31st October (see www.modelboatshow.co.uk or call 01926 614101 to order).
