I see in my Steam Railway (another hobby) that ship restoration firm have begun the process Of restoring the ship. Siward and the company.

Remember the model you built, not sure if it was a sister ship Shanklin. Gosh thats going back some years

Best regards

Thanks Colin,

I will give them a try.

Got time on my hands now so the old hobby is being reinstated. Have been refurbishing some of the old models some were not complete and suffered some damage in the loft. Garnock is one of them.

Glad to see some of the old faces around still

This is a bit of a long shot but I have just rediscovered a Garnock kit that I started many years ago.I seem to have all the parts but no plan or building instructions.I wondered if bu chance there is anybody able to help me with these items.I do appreciate that this is a somewhat old kit but help would be grateful.

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
