More than 20 model marine vessels were displayed by Metro Marine Modellers at this year’s Zoomer Show in Toronto, a lifestyle consumer show targeted at the 45 plus age group. More than 30,000 people attended the two-day show at the end of October.
The types of models ranged from tiny ships in bottles and museum-quality ships to a wide variety of scale models from tugboats and freight carriers to coast guard cutters and luxury ocean liners. Also on display were the three types of radi0-c0ntrolled sailboats raced by club members.
Lots of people dropped by the MMM booth to check out the boats and ask questions about the hobby of building and sailing maritime craft. Even Moses Znaimer, the founder and president of ZoomerMedia Limited dropped by to chat with several of the MMM members who attended the booth.
