INTERNATIONAL MODEL BOAT SHOW – Friday 8th to Sunday 10th November 2013.
The International Model Boat Show will be setting sail at the Warwickshire Exhibition Centre, near Leamington Spa, from 8th – 10th November 2013. 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 31 confirmed clubs, societies and demonstrations attending this unique exhibition, including 5 new clubs, with some of the finest marine models on show. 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.

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.
This year’s show will celebrate the 175th anniversary of the SS Sirius Steamship and the SS Great Western crossing the Atlantic.  Although the term ‘Blue Riband’ was not coined until years later, Sirius is often credited as the first winner at 8.03 knots (14.87 km/h). However, Sirius only held the record for a day because Great Western's voyage was faster at 8.66 knots (16.04 km/h). Great Western departed Avonmouth four days after Sirius and still came within a day of overtaking her.  To mark this achievement Gloucester and District Model Boat Club member Bob Hinton will be displaying his 1/64th scale model of the model of the Great Western at the show along with pictures and drawings in a Brunel display. SS Great Western is described as one of the Three Great Ships of Isambard Kingdom Brunel and was the first steamship to make regular transatlantic crossings in 1838.  Dr Marcus Rooks will also be displaying his Great Western motorised airfix model.
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).  Social media users can follow all the latest news and updates by following @MeridienneEx (#IMBS) on Twitter or via Meridienne Exhibition’s Facebook page.

I am certainly up for attending,I have booked my motorhome in to the campsite nearby.As my application to attend under my own Club entry was too late for inclusion,I will once again be with the lads on the L.B.E.S. Stand,with my unique model Lifeboat.
Looking forward to seeing it all once again,Lemon Curd Sponge cake will be on the menu!
