The South Shore Ship Modelers Guild is a non profit organization which promotes model building and the sharing of building techniques with its members and the public here in Nova Scotia. The Guild is supported by the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic in Lunenburg which promotes the art of model building by offering their facilities as a meeting place and a reference library. The Guild meet on the 2nd Saturday of each month at 1:30 pm at the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic in Lunenburg (except July and August). The meetings usually have a guest speaker, who shares their knowledge of model building on a specific topic. As well, the meetings have a casual round table discussion, to discuss  their current building projects. Members are encouraged to bring in models to the meetings to show other members the build progress and to create an open discussion of group to help in the build process.  During the summer months, volunteers from the Guild will be on hand in the The Ship Model Shop of the museum to demonstrate their model boat building skills to Museum visitors.

The South Shore Ship Modellers Guild has a diverse membership which includes beginners to expertise model builders. Our members build  static models, remote control models, wood carvings, historical displays, half models, lighthouses etc..  

The South Shore Ship Modellers Guild also participates in a number of events which allow the Guild members to display their models. See our Up Coming Events for the time and places.
