|Thread: HMS Kite|
Hi again, Dennis:
Just to confirm, you only want June and July, not August. And don't worry about the cost, it is only $.50 per page.
Not to worry, didn't know you were in Canada, I live on the west coast. I will get the copies this week and get them off to you Friday.
Not used to this format, how do we send messages off line? Will need your address to send copies.
I can send you copies of these articles if you wish. Just a matter of how you want them - colour copies, black and white or as a PDF file?
Let me know, there are about 10 pages involved. I think the cost of colour copies would be about $5 Can.
|Thread: HMS Kite|
You are right, the Ktie is not a project for beginner but there is a weath of info in the article, mostly 'how to do' stuff. If you can borrow the article from someone it will serve you for the future.
Good luck with your modelling!
Yes, can get these to you. I can either print them off in black and white (colour would be about $20 Can) or I can try to download them to a PDF file and put them on a disc.
Let me know which you would like, I will also need your home address.
|Thread: Construction manual|
Guess this is a little late but for what it is worth --- I have been building the Lilla Dan in a manner similar to you, old model, not much info. I did manage to contact a chap in England who sent me a manual, not much help but I would be happy to pass a copy on you. The drawings give more info than the manual - typical Billings model!
Thanks and let me know.
|Thread: HMS Kite|
Hi again, Robert:
If you have trouble obtaining the articles of the Kite I have them in my files and would be happy to copy them for you.
Paul Freshey's article on HMS Kite started in the April '01 issue of Model Boats and went through until the July '01 issue.
Hope this helps,
|Thread: Ships plans?|
Don't know if you have found anything but see my post to Charles Reading re the Endurance.
Too many people wanting to make a model of that boat!
|Thread: Help Needed!|
Don't know if you have found anything but I have a similar project underway and located the original plans for Endurance in the National Maritime Museum. A little pricey for us Canadians but purchased them anyway. The Scott Polar was also a source of info.
I also purchased a copy of 'South with Endurance' by John Hurley, great photos for details of the ship.
Hope this helps, good luck with your model.

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
