Metro Marine Modellers awed attendees at the 2017 Toronto Makers Festival. Metro Marine Modellers presented an amazing display of 25 ship models that covered all aspects of the hobby including ships in bottles, museum quality static models, remote controlled scale models and remote controlled sailing models. Club members discussed the models, how they were built, history of the modeled vessels and life of their crew members. The festival expected around 15,000 attendees. A very large number of them enjoyed the ship models. In recognition of the creativity demonstrated in this display the Metro Marine Modellers received the Mako Innovation Award.
