The Library Hosts Historically Accurate Scale Ship Modeling Lecture and Demonstration
The Ship Model Society of New Jersey will also display their ship models in the Library’s showcases during the entire month of June.
Did you ever wonder how those model ships are built with such exacting detail? Learn about this decorative art form at the East Brunswick Public Library on Monday, June 25 at 7:00 p.m. when the Ship Model Society of New Jersey will be here to give a lecture and demonstration on historically accurate, scale ship modeling. Everyone is welcome.
Ship models or model ships are scale representations of ships. They can range in size from 1/6000 scale miniatures to large vessels capable of holding people. Ship modeling is a craft as old as shipbuilding itself, stretching back to ancient times when water transport was first developed.
The models, all very intricate and built with painstaking detail to the originals, will be available for viewing during the entire month of June in the Library’s showcases located throughout the building. The exhibit features many different styles of model ships, as well as background information about the model and the original it is based on.
