HMS Dreadnought by Gdaynorm Commander   Posted: 3 months ago
So you think similarly to me. Eberyone builds famous ships. Trouble is getting the info for an accurate build. I usually get drawings from the National Maritime Museum, where they have builders drawings of just about every ship built in Britain, but for some reason they are not answering my e-mails. Very strange.

What to do???? by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
Hallo Kathy, my sympathies and commiserations, I also lost my Dad a little while ago. This a basically a UK site but we have very active members all over the world, including the US and Canada, so if you post some photos (or even a simple list (text catalogue with name of ship, type if you know! and size) you may get some responses from your side of the pond. Some of our US / Canadian members have connections to maritime museums and may be able to help you. Or may even want to buy one of the models! Even if static models many of us like the challenge of converting them to functional models. RNLI stands for Royal National Lifeboat Institute, it is the UK organisation which provides and maintains the lifeboat rescue services around the British Isles. It is totally funded by voluntary contributions, no government funding. All best wishes, Doug. In case you wonder about the site name RNinMunich; I'm English but have been living in Munich for over 30 years and my first radio control model was a Royal Navy ship!

Chesapeak Bay Maritime Museum by pugwash1 Seaman   Posted: 5 months ago
This is way more than just a maritime museum. The location in the heart the Chesapeak Bay Area, the home of the only sail ” fishing fleet in the U.S.A. No power drives at all with the exception of small ”pusher” units, kind of tiny, with room for a motor only! These are used to aid in getting to the fishery. The traditional boat is a Skipjack and the museum is a living boat yard. So even when there is no events there is always something to see. Model boat days are held around a large square tempary pool. One day is for scale and live steam, and another is free sail and model skipjack racing. We do not have control of the weather but I can not remember anything but sun on the days I have been there👍. The team at the museum are a great group of ladies and gentlemen who are passionate in their love of the sea and on model days you will find loads of helpful tips etc from all the “captains”. If you are visitors on holiday, Anapolis is no more than three quarters of an hour away, this is the home of the Rodgers collection of dockyard models and the worlds largest collection of French prisoner of war bone models (napolionic) in the world, it is a super nautical town! the Chesapeake museum is in St.Michaels, with lots of super shopping for the non model boating spouses. Further up the road on Tilghman island is a fantastic nautical book store who specializes in model ships and boats. However you need to visit the book store a day before the show day as everyone will be looking for that rare and special book!!!!! Hope this is a help.

Chesapeak Bay Maritime Museum by SelwynWilliams Captain   Posted: 5 months ago
I am always interested in Maritime Museums/Centres and this one obviously plays to its strengths of location and events.

Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum Model Boat Expo by rolfman2000 Admiral   Posted: 6 months ago
Oh Lord, i wish my wife and I could visit to see that. Chesapeake Bay is one place I see in my minds eye through reading Clive Cussler novels. I would love to see if my vision is anything like reality. Just the picture on the heading gets my imagination going. Best wishes, Dave W 😊
