LONDON MODEL ENGINEERING EXHIBITION by mturpin013 Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 22 hours ago
A good show and as the title suggested it was for model engineers rather than model boat builders, however this suited me and I was pleased to see Robbobs Crash Tender and his latest police boat, both of immaculate quality. If anybody wants a more model focussed show then try Doncaster

internet sales by Rookysailor Commander   Posted: 19 days ago
Totally agree with all points mentioned👍, another way is to make a note of the things you need, now and in the future i.e. glue, fittings,paint etc, and then visit the model boat shows advertised around the UK, some are close, others not, for me I like Doncaster show, Haydock and Blackpool, going to shows allows you to choose from various traders and cherry pick the bits you want, it works for me along with the internet for items wanted NOW! cheers Peter😊

My other hobby by Rookysailor Commander   Posted: 2 months ago
Yeah! Doug, I think about it now and wished I had continued. In 1979 my wife (at that time my fiance) and I, went to Doncaster light aviation club to see a Piper Cherokee that was for sale.(very cheap), when I saw it, I realised why the price was so low....all the interior had been fitted out in.............PINK FUR!!!! it was Cr**. Then a friend of mine asked if I wanted a 1/4 share in a Grumman Traveller stored at Barton in Manchester, it sounded good, but only getting the aircraft on days the other's didn't want was not good with me, so I bought an E type, with kept me amused for a while😊 Cheers Peter

My first time to this show. Found it very worthwhile and unlike the engineering show at the racecourse the food is great and value for money. Certainly go again, well done CADMA

Well I went to the Model Boat Show at Doncaster. Had many interesting discussions. One comment - could people on club stands please be told by their club when it meets and how to get in touch. Good selection of Trade Stands - nice to see items. Now when I decide what I want, I am much happier to order now I know what they look like. Nice range of models - all shapes and sizes.

Doncaster Model Boat Show by happysailor Petty Officer   Posted: 3 years ago
Hi oldtimer This was my first attempt at being the organiser of the CADMA show this year and it was my intention to get as many trades stands and club stands at the show without compromising on space. It was always my intention to have as much free movement for all at the show this year. Although I did and have had some very positive feedback your comments has made it all worth while. As many will know it takes alot of work to organise such events like this on your own and with the help of members on the day and get it right. That said if I was asked to organise next years show I would be happy to eventhough I work full time. Again many thanks for your comments.

Hi Oldtimer, with great regret I could not go to the show this year, my wife is very ill in hospital, however, your description sounds like the show was even better than last year, thanks for the superb description of the bring and buy, that was me, smuggling my purchases into the house when the wife was busy, HA! Regards Mark

Hi Oldtimer, did you have a nice time? where i'm at i'm to far from any club or events. I hope you had a great time!

Doncaster Model Boat Show by Oldtimer Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 3 years ago
Dear all, Please forgive the ramblings of a pensioner if l have overstepped the mark and the following should have been completed by someone such as Jarvo or Akelatheleader! However, here goes. Upon my arrival l was directed to the parking area by members of the local Air Training Corps. The entry fee was a very reasonable £5.00. The venue, a spacious exhibition hall was well laid out, thought having been given to wheelchair users such as myself. Access was made easy and uninhibited. First stall to greet you as you entered was Deans Marine. Well adorned with kits, including their very latest offerings not as yet in full production. Opposite was the display of club vessels owned by members of the hosts, CADMA. Excellent examples of the model builders art festooned the display, two l noted in particular were an open steam launch, complete with live steam propulsion and a Herring Drifter WY17 which paid respectful homage, to our beleaguered fishermen. Then on the rear wall a stand which sold all manner of modelling paraphernalia from mini compressors through modelling knives and table top vices to glues for every purpose. On the next aisle the Goole model boat club had set out their models for general perusal. As with CADMA the quality of exhibits was astonishing! A Police launch was the first to catch my eye not least by the splendid, illuminated array of spot lamps which were very bright and flashing blue beacons to the rear of the cabin. Bedecked in the national Police livery of lime and blue Battenberg the vessel looked very handsome. Then l met "Keith". He had 2 models with him, a "Castle" class Corvette and a 1939 S-Boat. Both models looked to be in the region of 30" in length but the detailing was breathtaking! He said his true passion in boats were the convoy escorts known as Corvettes. He had plagued the staff of "The Corvette Association" and their archives to such a degree they made him an honorary member of the association. A table toward the rear of the room displayed a cluster of large scale submarines. Awesome by their scale and sinister by association. Then came a stall with all manner of live steam associated parts and fittings. Boat fittings in resin, white metal and plastic formed a broad array of scale parts. The last stall sported all manner of scale mouldings and some incredibly detailed hydraulic lifting arms and cranes, everything for the docks and cargo masters stores. One table held a small group of true sailing vessels, propelled only by the world's fourth element. Where skippers of equal skill may win or lose, dependent upon the suit his/her charge is wearing on the day! The bring and buy sale upstairs went briskly and the open bar allowed for sorrows to be drowned when more had been spent than had been intended at the bring and buy. On the same floor the kitchens provided warm meals and hot drinks all at very sensible prices. All in all an excellent, well laid out venue where all levels of mobility were catered for. The models on display were all of the very highest quality, testimony to the diligence and expertise of the modellers themselves. Future shows are definitely worth a visit.
