  1. The Richmond Chapter of the IPMS is holding a scale model show and contest in Richmond, Virginia on Saturday, February 24, 2018. It is called the Old Dominion Open and it will be held at Richmond International Speedway in the Henrico Hall. This is a model show that has on display between 700 to 800 models of all types let alone 45 vendors spread out over 125 tables. The Hampton Roads Ship Model Society and the Washington Ship Model Society are sponsoring the ship model classes and the Best Maritime award. The two Clubs will have many of their members in attendance as well as many of their models on display. For more information, please check out the following website: 2018 IPMS Richmond Old Dominion Open Here are links to past shows that show many pictures of the models entered: 2014 IPMS Richmond Old Dominion Open 2013 IPMS Richmond Old Dominion Open I have seen many MSW members in attendance at prior shows and would hope that others can make it to Richmond, VA on February 24. If you come, please bring a model to enter in the show. The wooden ship model classes always draw a lot of attention from both the public and the plastic modelers.
  2. Gene Berger has a lot of pictures on his website of members’ models on display in the 50th Anniversary Exhibit of the Hampton Roads Ship Model Society. This exhibit at the Mariners' Museum ends on February 11. Here is a link to the 50th Anniversary Exhibit content on his web-page: http://geneberger-models.com/hrsms-exhibit/ Gene Berger standing by his SS United States and SC-1075 Sub Chaser models on display. Gene is also the Skipper of the HRSMS.
  3. The pressure is on. I will have to take a break from my honey-do list and get back to working on my Longboat. It will be completed in time for me to bring it to the Conference. I have been coming to the Conference since 2010 and I am looking forward to this one. It will be great to see everyone. Here are links to prior Conferences that contain many pictures of the ship models on display: 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013

  5. That was a nice article by the Eagle Tribune. Looking at the picture, it looks like the Club has some talented model builders.
  6. Here is the last batch of pictures. I took more pictures, but they turned out blurred. I will re-take them and post them on this topic at a later date. Please check out our website at http://www.hrsms.org and if you are in the Tidewater area of Virginia on the second Saturday of each month, please come and visit one of our meetings.
  7. The Hampton Roads Ship Model Society is celebrating its 50th Anniversary in 2017. Formed in 1967, the HRSMS meets every second Saturday at 10:00 am at the Mariners Museum. To celebrate our 50th anniversary, the Mariners Museum is displaying over 50 models built by its members. This display will run for approximately six months. Here is a link to the Mariners' Museum HRSMS 50th Anniversary Exhibit. Here is an ad that ran in the Daily Press earlier this week: Here are some pictures of the reception that the Mariners' Museum held for the HRSMS members and their guests. Howard H. Hoege, III, President and CEO of the Mariners' Museum was the guest speaker. Here is the exhibit room and some of the models on display: Here is a picture of our 50th Anniversary cake and cupcakes that were served at our annual banquet held in March: I will be posting more pictures of the ship models on display built by our members.

    Very nice work.
  9. I have a problem with my desktop computer. The toolbar on Post New Topic and Post Reply does not work. I can see the icons, but they are light gray in color. Nothing works when you click on them. When I open up post new topic or post reply, for a fraction of a second the icons appear in color but then flashes to a light gray color. This is not a problem with MSW but with my desktop. It worked yesterday as I posted a screen shot on how to change your signature. I am unable to link anything and everything in my signature shows up in code. I was using IE 8 and I restored my computer back to Wednesday's settings. I then updated to IE9, but still the icons do not work. I lowered my security and privacy setting in Internet Options. Still nothing works on the toolbar. I am typing this on my laptop and everything works fine, but all of my pictures and logs are on my desktop. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. I am stumped on this one. I want to get me desktop computer functioning correctly so that I can up date some build logs.

We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
