Results and impressions

Since the championship included the world’s finest ship-modellers, expectations that there would be a high number of medals awarded were confirmed. Absolute champion of the championship was excellent Italian craftsman Giuseppe Tombolesi, who was awarded with full 100 points for his model of “Royal Caroline”, made in admiralty depiction (with depiction of constructional elements). Such high result hadn’t been achieved on world championships for a very long time, but his model was a masterpiece of perfect technical and artistic execution, a result of over 11 years of dedicated work. Participant had the opportunity to get acquainted with Dubrovnik, its sights and a part of its rich maritime tradition. Their impressions were very good and satisfying. Through the organisation of the championship, Croatia has confirmed itself as a good host for a world manifestation. We are left with a sense of satisfaction for an extremely well-organised event and the time spent in the company of the world’s best ship-modellers.
