The Model Guild is a great place to learn the art of ship model making. At each meeting members bring in the models they are working on and show their progress. It is an opportunity for the members to get help with techniques and materials.
From time to time a meeting will feature a detailed discussion of a shipbuilding aspect like, planking the hull, using a duplicator on a small lathe, or making authentic scaled sizes of rope for a model.
It’s easy to become a member of the CIMM Model Guild, simply come to one of the meetings and fill out an application. The cost is $15 per person per year and Guild members are expected to be Museum members as well. The Guild meets on the third Tuesday of the month at 6:30 PM, everyone is welcome.
