Thread: It`s not working!

It's not rocket science.  Stop posting in all capital letters.  It's bad netiquette and taken to mean you are shouting.

James, stop posting all in caps please.  It's bad manners.

Paul, the three M1 subs were actually built on K Class hulls already laid down.  What do you want to know?

Not a lot Paul.    Nighty night!

Hi Paul, M2 was converted to a seaplane carrying sub after the war and M3 into a minlelayer.  M1 was apparently re-discovered off Start point in1999 by Innes McCartney who wrote an Osprey title on WWI subs in which there's a picture of M1 wearing her late war camouflage scheme.

Thread: Del Prado

Hi Jane,

I don't know as yet, I have to contact Tina whose husband passed away and relate everything to her.  I think she has the Titanic collection as well?


25/07/2008 17:37:00's covered in my contract of employment.  I'm not allowed to look at that site.

Thanks Bob!  And thankyou very much Jane for asking Paul.  The trouble with building it myself is firstly time....too many tanks to build!  Secondly, getting my boss to shell out £100 for it!

A few of you might be aware that in my other incarnation I have been attempting over the last year or so to dispose of a friends late husband's modelling stash. Whilst his main interests were armour related, he had a few other things which he collected. One of these is the weekly Del Prado & Osprey magazine collection of 'Build the HMS Victory'.

Being mainy into armour I haven't a clue how much something like this would be worth? Anybody have a an idea? We've been through it, and it's as supplied, all there, with each of the weekly magazines still with each of the wooden and brass parts, and factsheet etc. 100 magazines in total.

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
