Trucking at the Waterways

GYMBC has many members who build and operate model trucks as well as boats. These are mainly based on the Tamiya 1/14th scale kits with a degree of customising and scratch building utilised to enhance the models. This particularly applies to trailers and our members have created a wide range of variants.

The Venetian Waterways lends itself to the operation of model trucks due to the meandering tarmac pathways that run through and around the venue. This is enhanced by the small bridges that cross the waterway in multiple locations and bring a new dynamic to operating the trucks.

The Club’s third party insurance cover includes the operation of the model trucks at the Venetian Waterways and we welcome new members who only wish to operate model trucks. We also welcome members who only have trucks to be part of our display at the many shows and exhibitions we attend as a Club.

We also offer Temporary Membership (at very low cost) for people visiting on holiday.

The Venetian Waterways are located in the North Beach Area a few hundred yards north of ‘Britannia Pier’ on the sea front.

Trucks, boats, sea views, chips and ice cream - what’s not to like.
