Quinte Model Shipwrights is group of people dedicated to the hobby of model boat building. This includes researching archives of civil or naval museums and manufacturers and developing scale drawings to build the replica. This is called scratch building. Other members use commercially available kits, drawings, or hulls to construct the version of the ship they desire. When modifying a kit to match a particular ship, this is called kit-bashing; probably one of the more popular methods of construction. We put on static displays of scale model boats and/or on-water demonstrations of radio controlled electric or wind powered boats. We are currently 30 members and we meet on the first Friday of every month at the home of our President, Bob Strachan, 1116 County Rd 8 Picton. 476-1263.
