About the Exhibition

We are pleased to announce that the 2018 International Model Boat Show will be returning from Friday 9th – Sunday 11th November to the Warwickshire Event Centre.

The show will as usual provide visitors with a packed exhibition hall with over 600 fantastic models from over 25 club and society displays.

The excellent and varied display of models from early warships to modern power boats and ships will be complemented by action on the large indoor boating pool.

In addition to all the boating action, the Tamiya Truckin team will be demonstrating and driving their 1/14 scale radio controlled models on a roadway system over 80 metres square. This fantastic arena will feature radio controlled 1/14 scale trucks, plant and machinery.

This year the award for the best society/club display will be sponsored by the magazine “Model Boats”. See .

Last year King Lear Model Boat Club came 1st, in 2nd place was Bournville Radio Sailing & Model Boat Club and in 3rd position was The Lifeboat Enthusiasts Society. Who will win this year?

Over twenty specialist suppliers will also be present offering visitors everything they could need for their boat builds and other modelling needs.
