Local Ship Model Club at the Fair

The South Bay Model Shipwrights, a group that has a long history of being an active part of the ship modeling community has recently worked with the organizers of the San Mateo County Fair to bring wooden ship models back on display. The club’s membership, lead by president Jim Rhetta, put together quite a collection of kit built and scratch built ship models, with the idea of getting models out in the public where people can see and appreciate them.

Hopefully, these will inspire new ship modelers to build models and possibly join the club’s ranks, and also to create some interest among the younger audience. Model building is a hobby that’s less popular with the lure of Internet and video games, but there are certain to be those that will still look upon models like these with a certain amount of awe, and will hopefully develop their creative drives.
