Exhibitions

Blackpool Model Show: 15th & 16th October 2022

Some members will attend, but this will be privately organised this year.


International Model Boat Show: CANCELLED this year, following the death of Chris Deith.


Midlands Model Engineering Exhibition: despite recent rumours, this exhibition has been CONFIRMED AS BEING ON. Dates are Thursday 13th to Sunday 16th October 2022, at the Warwickshire Event Centre.

Note that, at the moment, tickets must be purchased IN ADVANCE via the website at: meridienneexhibitions.co.uk

This will be the ONLY national-scale model engineering exhibition held this year, but it does usually feature a decent model boat presence. Consult the website for the planned content this year, please.


Kenneth Ireland has completed HMS KELLY, and it’s looking terrific, both on the water and at the pond side. Ken has provided a positive feast of photos, and the completed Feature will be on the site in the near future.
