The International Shipmodelling Days in Hamburg

The International Maritime Museum Hamburg is organising the “II International Shipmodelling Days in Hamburg between September the 18th and the 20th of 2020. Ship model makers and modelling clubs in all disciplines – from historical wooden ships to RC-models, from cardboard models to collectible miniatures in a scale of 1:1250 – are welcome to display their works in the event. This meeting is a great oportunity to show your creations to a wider audience and expand your network in the modelling scene.

During the first Shipmodelling Days in September 2018, over 45 modelling clubs and model makers from all over Europe displayed their first-class models at the Museum. Over 800 models built in all inmaginable materials and all possible scales were presented in the entrace hall and over four exhibihtion “decks”. The response of the audience went beyond our most optimistic expectations. Many of the model told us they had wish for a longer event. That’s why we have decided to make the show a 3-days event in 2020.

The International Shipmodelling Days in Hamburg 2020 will again take place over several “decks” (floors) od the museum. The museum is housed in the Kaispeicher B, the oldest still-standing warehouse of the Port of Hamburg. It is placed between the UNESCO heritage site Speicerstadt (wharehouse district) and the spectacular HafenCity, at the heart of Hamburg. The museums displays the collection of Prof. Peter Tamm, which is the largest of her kind worldwide. Among other exhibits there are thousands of ship models. The museum offers a unique frame for a shipmodelling show.
