History in scale at the Malta Maritime Museum:
The 35th edition of the annual exhibition by members of the Society for Scale Modellers (SSM) was held between the 10th February and 14th of February 2016, at the Vittoriosa Waterfront's Malta Maritime Museum.
Models of civil and military aircraft, cars, trucks and motorbikes, armoured vehicles and various classes of ships all from different eras and scenarios, were on display. A section dedicated to figurines was also set up.
Many of these models had won awards and placed well in international events, some as recent as 2015. These models are veritable works of art and are obviously finished to the highest possible standards, testimony of the capability of Maltese modellers.
As Malta's representatives of the International Plastic Modellers Society (IPMS), the SSM has been promoting scale modelling in Malta for these past 34 years and has, locally and internationally, become synonymous with the high standards in model making of its members. In its continued effort to ensure that this expression of art remains popular, the SSM strives to introduce youngsters to the hobby by means of its exhibitions, workshops and courses in scale modelling.
Visitors to this year's exhibition were also be able to follow the process of model construction as members of the society were working in real-time on models at work-stations set up purposely for the spectators' benefit. IPMS Malta enjoys a very high ranking in international modelling quality and consequently, both finished and work in progress models are guaranteed to be of the highest levels.

CHARACTER & PERSONALITY:
As an Acquarian, has been defined as ambitious and serious. Loves to teach and be taught. Always aware of people’s flaws and weaknesses. Somewhat critical, but hardworking and productive. Supposedly smart, neat and organised (which is far from the truth he feels!!), sensitive and having deep thoughts, but know how to make others happy (maybe with some dirty or corny Irish joke, what!). Usually quiet, unless exited or tensed (or broke!). So, that should make him rather reserved, not the party animal he always aspired to be. Highly attentive this Acquarian should be, resistant to illness but prone to colds, like any common mortal so. Romantic but has difficulty expressing love (Shakespeare or Van Halen, help here please!). Loves children, hence his days in the Boy Scout movement, a homely guy, but above all loyal. Seemingly in need to improve social abilities, whilst easily jealous.
Go figure, now you tell him how much of all that is true….
