Quinte Model Shipwrights was formed in 1995 by individuals who had a common interest in model shipbuilding and maritime history. Goals of the club are to discuss and share modelling ideas and concepts while making new friends. Our members today represent all age groups with abilities varying from novice to expert. Vessels built by the Shipwrights represent a variety of types and eras. Sizes range from miniatures a few inches in length to radio control ships over five feet long, and from basic to amazingly complex. Our membership includes beginning through advanced modellers, some of whose works can be found in museums, galleries and private collections. The group meets monthly at designated member’s homes.
