Seattle Show Results from Saturday's Show in Renton for the Cheerful

Recommended Posts

The Show in Seattle Saturday was held and I was Awarded 1st place Ribbon in Non Powered Ships Any Scale and then Best Ship of Show for Pickels and my HMS Cheerful 1/48 from Syren. Thanks to Chuck- Syren for a great kit and fittings and all of his advice and help in our building of the Cheerful. The IPMS Club Show is 99% plastic models,including the ship models that are entered. It was not long ago that wooden models of any kind were not able to enter these shows. Now any model that has appropriate materials can be entered. It has been a learning curve for the Judges at these shows. It's very rewarding that now these shows welcome our wooden ship models,at least here in Washington and Oregon. Thanks to all of your support and viewing my posts in the past. I just wish I could share it with Pickels like in this photo where he was looking at the Cheerful,as he always did while I was working. RIP Pickles,you were with me in spirit. Hope that next year there will be more wooden ships in the Show.

I hope that next year other wooden ship builders will enter their ships at this Show. I will be back with my Gunboat Philadelphia and the Nina. And will have the Nina at the Oregon Modelers Society IPMS Show this September 21st in Portland,Or.. So plan to be there if you can,please and with a ship to enter. Last year we had 8 wooden ship models entered. They are in a wooden ship category.

 

I know that Pickels was with me this weekend,and loves what he had helped in building. The Nina is his last build. It's not been easy starting back on it,but I am working on it a little every day now. Here's what my competion was in plastic ships at this show.

 

Thanks Keith

Bear, do give us plenty of notice on the Sept. event.  Also info as to admission charges, entry fees, etc. Also, hoping lodging in the area.  I'm hoping that after August, things will be stable enough around here to take a road trip.  Might bring the my Constellation and if I get further along, Licorne.  I'll just need to take it easy with the curves going through the passes.  ;)

No case for mine here,but at home it's in a large one with my other wooden ships. At the Show I do watch it 90% of the time. Have not had any problems over the years. You should come to our Show  September  21st at Camp Withecomb Clacamas,Oregon. Just east of I205 south of Portland. I'll PM you more details. Check out Oregon Modelers Society for details on Facebook.

 

Thanks Keith

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
