Thread: Should models boats include the crew?
06/06/2009 15:20:21
 in my opinion  like the other members i hate to see a finished model ?
without figures large or small  there are loads out there to be modifyed 
to suite most boats  its great to see a finished warship or tug with crew
on deck i never have a boat without  figures

Thread: Billings Boats

i built a couple of graupner kits they are useally  good kits but  most  are  not 
for the beginners  the plans are good but the write up in the instructions leave 
a bit to be desired probaly  because they are a german company i have done
four or five over the years  ie paul denker  tina and a nordcap they make good kits
but maybe they have changed  i would the model shop to show you the instruction first
or ask what the rateing for kit ie beginner  or some modelling  experiance needed
hope this helps mick

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.
