Hyde Street Pier Model Shipwrights has achieved international recognition! We’re now listed on the Overseas Modeling Clubs page of the website of the Japanese ship modeling society, The Rope. We are one of 5 organizations listed, along with the NRG, the SMA, the Midwest Model Shipwrights, and the San Diego Ship Modelers’ Guild.
It’s not clear exactly when this occurred, but we did get a huge spike in visitors from Japan in mid-August, with a lot of interest in Jerry Bellows’ wonderful photos from the Royal Danish Arsenal Museum, Copenhagen, Denmark.
In any case, we’re happy to have our friends from Japan visit our site. Let’s hope that this inspires our members to post more articles on our site, work on their ship modeling projects, and take photos of their work!
