International Convention of Model Shipbuilding in Rochefort, France

Michel Mantin, who is a member of AAMM and previous editor of the magazine Neptune, and further my friend as well as a honorary member of The Rope, visited Tokyo on an occasion of the 40th anniversary of The Rope. Michel delivered a special lecture at the ceremony together with honorary members of SMA of California. Some members of The Rope asked Michel about a possibility of holding exhibition of ship models in France. Upon his return, this inquiry was discussed at AAMM and the captioned convention and exhibition became a reality in this coming October.

Over 100 models will be exhibited. Outside of France, models are expected from Italy, Belgium, Russia, Germany, Netherlands and the United States.
