Sorry C V but Capitals is shouting . Colin there is no intended malice in my remarks if it appears like that to you so be it . To me the Magazine is just a product and These people or this person should you choose to ignore are their Customers. I may be one of the few on this forum that speaks against but that's me Don't forget I have said I like it

19/03/2021 16:35:02

Well I would say if you do not like criticism do not read it, notice I was not shouting. I do like the magazine but do not see why I cannot express an opinion on points I don't without footstamping If you don' like it don't buy it snipes

True I may have contributed little to this forum never knew it was a requirement. I have no problem with your observations .However you must accept peoples right to criticise the Magazine and by all means choose to disagree but avoid getting close to being Personal

Funny thing is with last months copy it said next issue is your last, renew subscription.I was aware of that and already had the letter. When I did renew by phone a bit later all ok. Then last this copy came with this is your last copy put that down to error then got a letter telling me the same. As I had already checked they had grabbed the payment so to make sure they had not got it wrong gave them a ring all sorted..Where is the call centre Colin Sounded like Mumbai both times

Make your own contribution to the Website

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
