About the Exhibition

The annual International Model Boat Show, widely regarded as one of the UK Leading Marine Modelling Exhibitions, took place from the 6th to 8th November 2015 and celebrated its 18th successful year.

Visitors were treated to a packed hall with over 600 fantastic models from the 30 club and society displays. The excellent and varied display of models from early warships to modern power boats and ships was complemented by action on the large boating pool. Twenty one specialist suppliers were also present offering visitors everything they could need for their builds.

The Marine Modelling International Society Shield for Best Society/Club Display, as voted for by the clubs themselves, was awarded for the third year running to Manx Model Boat Club. In 2nd place was the King Lear Model Boat Club and in 3rd place the Lifeboat Enthusiasts’ Society. The challenge is on for the 2016 award now!

The introduction of Steve’s Top 10 loan models was certainly well received by our visitors and exhibitors who enjoyed the variety of models in this special section. We look forward to presenting another selection for your enjoyment in 2016 so if you have a model which you would like to be considered please contact the organisers.

Avril Spence, Exhibition Manager said “We had another successful and enjoyable show for all of our visitors and exhibitors. We would like to thank the Clubs and Societies who brought along a fabulous selection of models and worked really hard to organise their displays and made the show so successful. Our thanks are also extended to our Pool Master Steve Dean and his individual exhibitors who displayed a wonderful varied range of unique and interesting models. Our thanks also to the specialist suppliers who joined us”
