Metro Marine Modellers put on an exceptional exhibit at the 2018 Makers Festival held July 7-8 in the Toronto Reference Library. The exhibit included 30 ship models on display, modellers working on their ships to demonstrate modelling techniques, a table where kids could make their own models and a lathe demonstration where small brass goblets were made and handed out to show attendees.
The kids model building and lathe demonstration exceeded our expectations. 50 model building kits had been prepared and by the end of the show Saturday only 13 were left. The lathe demonstration produced and handed out 150 of the brass goblets.
