|Thread: The Model Boat Convention - The End.|
With deep regret the Committee of the Model Boat Convention have taken the decision to terminate the Association with the residual proceeds, in accordance with the Constitution being donated to the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.
Attendance at the shows of both traders and modellers had declined over the years and the advent of Covid has led to the winding up of the Model Boat Convention.
May we thank those who competed, those who acted as stewards all the years and those who attended as visitors.
All the very best to you all for the future

|Thread: New Subscriptions Links|
I suspect when they say all the copies , they probably mean all the copies which were there originally from 2007.

|Thread: Magazine Price rise|
Not a bad price really, if you were to get someone to buy it here and ship it over it would be £ 13.00GBP, even surface mail would be £ 11.00 or approx $23 or $19.50 AUD.

Oh Eck, Sorry to hear about the Covid and hope you make a speedy recovery, couple of relatives have just caught I assume the Omicron variant as they do not seem to bad, one being My Son who is confined to his room as I have recently had an op and could do with not catching any illness just yet.

|Thread: Blunders and Co-k ups|
Umm, a few .
At the age of 7 and in the US in a vacant desert area Never shoot an arrow straight up in the air !! luckily a split second later we realised what we had done and legged it, luckily the arrow came back down near to where we were. ( I still do archery as well !!)
At the age of around 20, obviously not having learnt my lesson with the arrow, at a friends house we decided to test an air pistol by again shooting pellets straight up and timing how long the fell back to earth, after a few near misses we retired to the door area of the kitchen and carried on but stepped back into the house after each shot.
In my early modelling life I with the 2 from the pistol incident decided to build a hot air balloon from plans from the modelling plans book using tissue paper and meths. It was raining outside so we tested it inside the kitchen !!, this did not go well and went up in flames, luckily it was not big and we put out the floating fire quite quickly with only some minimal damage to those 70's type coloured plastic roof tiles, this was easily sorted as we swapped them for the ones over the kitchen cupboards.. many many years later when the family were having a kitchen refurb was our miss-deeds found out. and we owned up.
|Thread: Subscriber Extra.|
Subscriber extra is an option on the menu bar at the top of this page.
Yes they are on PMags but not showing on this forum website which is what I think the OP refers to.

|Thread: mercury hydroplane 1980's unused balsa model kit for sale|
If I had money to waste I would do a James May on it !! buy it and build it but as this goes back to 2009 I doubt it is still around, try sending a private message to Colin to see if he still has it, else I would imagine it would not be that hard to recreate from the pictures on the thread.

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.
