I am still trying to locate either the Sept 83 issue of model boats magazine or a copy of the Miranda construction article contained within. Can anyone assist?

Thank you all for your interest and helpful advice. I have purchased the Aug edition that was on Ebay. Just issues July and Sept to locate now. I have also bought a copy of 'Scratch building marine models' which I will find helpful. I am competent with wood and metal work but have not built a model boat since my early teens when I built 'Flatso' from the plans.

Thank you Colin for your reply. I have already discovered these links as I have been searching the internet.

Hello all, I have retired and been looking for a project to occupy my spare time. I have purchased the plans for this build along with the plans for the steam engine. Both sets of plans lack construction details and I have found that this build was featured in the Model Boats Mag July to Sept 83. I have tried to track down these mags or the articles in them but with no success. Can anyone assist with the provision of the relevant articles for this construction. Many thanks in anticipation of assistance.

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
