From October 14th through the 17th, some fifty models of sailing ships will be on display at the 20th annual Ship Model Exhibit presented by the members of Rocky Mountain Shipwrights. The free exhibit is located at Rockler Woodworking and Hardware at 2553 S. Colorado Boulevard in Denver.
All the models have been built by members of the organization. Many modeling types are represented, from ships in bottles to models fabricated from paper. In between are wooden ship models, mostly from the “golden age of sail. Several of the Rocky Mountain Shipwrights have won national awards, and some have placed models in museums. One, a model of the Arleigh Burke class destroyer, now resides at the U.S. Naval Academy.
Rocky Mountain Shipwrights are dedicated model makers, but not all of them are experts by any means. Anyone with a model kit who doesn’t know where to start can get advice at the show.
Remember the dates: Friday, October 14th through Sunday, October 17th. The exhibit will be open during Rockler’s regular business hours. You can get further details about the exhibit and the organization at www.RockyMountainShipwrights.org.
