    The Victoria model ship building society clearly has a lot of talent, based on those photos.

    As for the museums I visited, it was in the 90โ€™s, and any photos have not been located or unpacked from my last move.
    So many ships . . . and so little time . . .

    PeeJay, the BC Natural History Museumโ€™s model displays were closed, very disappointed โ˜น๏ธ, paid good $$ to see it and when inside, I found it was being restored.

    Regarding the Marine Museumโ€™s collection, my main interest was in the Sudbury. They had only this model of the Sudbury II and nothing on the converted WWII Corvette that became a salvage tug, SS Sudbury, at the museum. There ship reference library and drawing reference materials are stored in an off-site location.

    We visited the Victoria Model Shipbuilding Society at their Sunday morning sailing pond.

    They have a Facebook group where they post information about their club.

    Hi Peejay, do you have any photos of this museum (of the models on display I mean)?

    If they have not changed it, it is amazing. So many model ships. Also I believe the first court room.

    The model ship museum in Savannah, GA is impressive as well
