ModelBoats.co.uk is set to become one of the world's biggest Model boats sites, with a great mixture of informative reviews of the latest kits and aftermarket items, up-to-date news, and features such as full builds from well-known modellers, show reports from around the world, and technique articles. We have a range of people writing for us, from professional modellers to complete enthusiasts and even you can write for us.
We aim to have a lively forum and gallery section where you can get advice and comments on your latest build from other modellers, both amateur and professional. As a member you can take part in this, upload your photos and post reviews of your kit.
It's totally FREE to join. It only takes a minute and you can sign up for our optional email newsletter so that we can keep you up-to-date on what's happening in the world of modelling. Best of all, as a member you will be able to take part in our competitions and have the chance to win some great stuff!
Over here at Model Boats we take our members seriously, so we won't pass on your details to other companies without your permission and we won't send you spam either.
Make sure you never miss out on the latest news, product reviews and competitions with our free RSS feed
We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.
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. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.
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.
Colin Bishop - Website Editor
