I'm looking to swap my MAR Italian mtb for a revel / matchbox 1/72 scale HMCS Snowberry . I live in Central Cardiff so would be more than happy to meet up and do the deal .There is nothing wrong with the MAR its all still in plastic bags ( had to use the box for something else ) So if interested drop me a line and we can sort something out .
|Thread: All clubs in the South Wales Area|
This is a shout out to ALL clubs in the South Wales area .Are you like me FED UP with all the good shows going on in England !! Well i for one am fed up of it , this is no way a smear on our English neighbours by no means , But as our nation is steeped in maratime history from the Romans sailing up the usk to make Caerleon and Captain Robert Falcon Scott sailing into the frozen pages of history to Swansea smelting copper for nelsons ships and many other smaller ports in south wales shaping British history .So com,e on everyone lets get our collective heads together and put South Wales back on the boat show map ,It's not like we have'nt got the room to put on a show .We have done this in the past so lets do it again in the future .Lets get together and sort this out with suggestions on venues etc .I live in central cardiff sop i am biased and would like to see a show in cardiff BUT would equaly be up to holding it else where , perhaps the Knapp in Barry an excellent strech of water ,Swansea has the Marina and an excellent museum .So come on guys and girls of course lets all put our collective heads together and sort something out for next year possibly june,july or august .Lets hear some voices on this

|Thread: Commission build|
I have the Revel Snowberry on my board at the mo but due to an increased work load , i work in retail security , i need some one to take over the build for me .It will come with motor , rudder servo , speed controller and 2.4 ghz receiver .It comes with a load of spare bits and i would like all the figures used on it please .Obviously i don't expect it to be done for nothing but on the other hand i cannot afford a kings ransom , so to speak .I live in Central Cardiff so the ideal candidate would need to live within say 50 miles of Cardiff ( give or take !!!! ) So any one up for a challenge ???
Please give me a shout back on here ,many thanks Andy
|Thread: 2.4 ghz Reciver|
i was after another 2.4 reciver to go into my corvette and went into my local antics to be told that they dont make the planet T9 reciver any more and would have to buy a new set up HOWEVER going on line to a model boat forum i was quickly advised of a shop in leeds that supply them so i orderd one there and then at the cost of £22 and got it a few days later i was well impressed and will be buying from there again when i need another one .I also wanted to get the M.A.R << 500 >> Italian mtb Antics would do it for £75 and i got it from Jadlam racing for a few pennies under £68 with free p+p and 10% off next order which will prob be either the crew for the mar or the Vosper mtb , wish they would do the airfix one i 1/35 as 1/72 is to small for my fat fingers .Alsop whilst i'm on a rant !!!! Why are the trumpeter 1/200 kits so bloody expensive and could i buy them direct from the maker at a cheaper price ??? Any one got any ideas or suggestions ???

|Thread: Not quite floating !!!!|
Okay you clever lot out there i'm nearing the end of my gato build and to put all the motors etc in ni intend to cut part of the deck away behind the conning tower and down to within 6 to 8 inches of the stern .I was thinking of cutting a length of balsa wood ,coating it in pva glue to waterproof it and screwing the upper deck to that .Is this right or can any one suggest anyone different .
|Thread: What a first day!|
OMG thats why i don't build planes with my luck it would go into a dive and smash into a million bits as for sinking boats , well sorry down to me shorts and in after it i'm dammed if i'm going to let some one worm dangling walk off with my boat .After all just patch it up replace the motor and away you go .
|Thread: schnellboot s100 revisited|
Personaly speaking i found it easier to remove the deck section with the life rafts on it after the motors etc were in and make a small platform for the battry to go on .

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!
I look forward to receiving your suggestions.
