Auf Deutsch: Internationale Schiffsmodellbautage Hamburg
The second International Shipmodelling Days in Hamburg will take place between September the 16th and the 18th 2022.
Due to the still uncertain planning possibilities for the 2nd International Shipmodelling Days in Hamburg 2021, we have decided to postpone it to next year. We hope that next year the pandemic has been largely contained and more normality has returned. The International Ship Modelling Days at the International Maritime Museum Hamburg will now take place continuously every 2 years in September. For 2022 we have chosen the period Friday, 16.9. to Sunday, 18.09.2022 as the exhibition days.
We are going to use the coming months to work further in the organisation of the event. We are sure that the International Shipmodelling Days in Hamburg 2022 are going to be memorable!
The International Shipmodelling Days in Hamburg
The International Maritime Museum Hamburg is organising the “II International Shipmodelling Days in Hamburg” between September the 16th and the 18th of 2022. 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 2022 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.
