I am looking forward to this event.  It will be great to see the many MSW members who attend this event.

 

Here are links to the past three Conferences that have pictures of the many ship models that were on display:

 

2015 Northeast Joint Clubs Conference and Show

 

2014 Northeast Joint Clubs Conference and Show

 

2013 Northeast Joint Clubs Conference and Show

 

Please plan on attending this event if you can.  You will not be disappointed.

This will be my first visit to the conference. I wish to bring my wife. Is there some sort of activity or venue for wives who are not interested in the conference?

Thistle,

 

My wife has attended the last six shows with me.  I would estimate that about 20% of the guys bring their wives.  She will not be alone.  My wife likes to look at the models and she even watches some of the demos that are going on.  If she wants, she can bring a lawn chair and sit on the deck or on the beach enjoying the good weather that is guaranteed for the show.  She will have a good time.

Just a reminder that Thursday is the last day to save $5.00 off of the registration fee for the Conference and Show.  See the opening post for details.  I did the PayPal option and it worked very smooth.

 

​Lets support this show because the Clubs and their members who are planning this event are putting in a lot of time to ensure that this show will be better than the previous years show.  Every year it gets better and it is one of the best shows in the US.

Thistle, I agree with what Ryland said. My wife attended last years conference (our first) and enjoyed it immensely. We are both planning on attending this year's conference.

Just out of curiosity, as a Westerner who doesn't know that area of the country, what is the best airport option to get to New London if coming from another part of the country?  Hartford?  Boston?

 

Thanks,

Erik

3 good choices - Hartford (BDL), Providence (PVD) and (least prefered) Boston (BOS). I personally prefer Providence.

Another possibility is Tweed New Haven CT. You will not get a direct flight but this airport is less than 1 hr. from New London CT

New Bedford Whaleboat build. Kit by Model Shipways

 

 

I've been making progress on my model and according to the instruction booklet I should be painting it, at least parts of it.

Are acrylic's ok ? I did apply a sanding sealer. but I want to stain the untreated floor boards which are walnut.

 

Thanks

 

 

 

S.O.S.
