Sat 9th - Sun 10th Nov 2019 International Model Boat Show




We are pleased to announce that the 2019 International Model Boat Show will be returning on Saturday 9th & Sunday 10th November to the Warwickshire Event Centre.  This will be a new two-day format this year and not open to visitors on the Friday.

As usual the show will be packed 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.

Organisers expect nearly twenty specialist suppliers to be present offering visitors everything they could need for their boat builds and other modelling needs.

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 competition for the “Model Boats Magazine - Society Trophy” will be hotly contended. Last year’s winners were King Lear Model Boat Club, 2nd place was The Lifeboat Enthusiasts Society and 3rd position was Bournville Radio Sailing & Model Boat Club.  Who will win this year?
