Maritime Model Expo
During the event, radio-controlled (R-C) steamboat modelers will sail model boats in a large, temporary pond, while R-C model sailors race and sail their craft along the museum’s waterfront. Steam-powered and sailing models will be demonstrated throughout the weekend. On Sunday, CBMM’s Model Sailing Club will race five-foot R-C skipjack models along CBMM’s Fogg’s Cove.
The pond will be used throughout the event for model steamboats and other R-C models—including sailboats, submarines, electrically driven models with modest motors, and self-steered pond sailing models. On-land exhibits will include a collection of models by Washington Ship Model Society members and other highly acclaimed modelers as well. In addition to radio-controlled operating models and static model displays, the event offers children the opportunity to select, build, color, and sail a simple model boat they can keep for $3.
The two-day event is open to the public and free for CBMM members or with general admission.
