The International Maritime Museum Hamburg (IMMH), largest private collection of maritime items worldwide of Prof. Peter Tamm, will present the first “International Shipmodelling Days in Hamburg” on September 15th and September 16th 2018. Shipmodellers and clubs of all kind – from historic ships made of wood to radio controlled, from card models to styrene, resin and multimedia or collector models in 1250 scale – will present their models and dioramas. The meeting will be a great platform to make yourself known and to work on your network with shipmodellers with a widest approach to the hobby.

A unique maritime venue

The show will be presented in the lobby and on the first two floors of the IMMH. There will be an area of about 280 runnings meters of tables between and around the exhibits of the museum. The museum is based in the Kaispeicher B, the oldest remaining storehouse building of Hamburg in the heart of the new and spectacular Hamburg Harbour City and houses Tamm´s unique collection of maritime memorabilia, including thousands of ship models of all shapes and sizes. There will be special offers for children and families and there will be space for vendors too.

High end exhibition

Around 45 clubs and individual modelers signed in for the exhibition and the registrations clearly show: It will be the expected high end exhibition. This will be accompanied by lectures about ship modelling held by the staff of the museum’s workshop and by several members of the different clubs.
