The 2019 Model Boat Show(MBS) will he held on Saturday, November 9th at the Oxford Community Center in conjunction with Waterfowl and the Oxford Firehouse Antiques Fair.
Roughly 45 nationally known boat modelers/ship artists from the Delmarva Peninsula and beyond are expected on-site. The displays range from Chesapeake-style crafts such as skiffs, sailboats, crab and oyster boats, historical ships, motor boats, and much more. The techniques used to master-build these ships and boats range from established shipbuilding skills of over a century ago to more modern techniques such as photogrammetry. Some models and books will be for sale, and a craft or two and a couple of kits will be raffled off.
New this year we welcome to the OCC stage several area small museums. Crisfield’s Tawes Historical Museum, Tilghman Watermen’s Museum, Cambridge’s Richardson Maritime Museum, and Oxford’s own Oxford Museum will feature displays highlighting the unique character of their corner of the Eastern Shore.
