Hi Roger,
Aircraft servo should be ok for the rudder, but for pulling in the sail you will need something stronger and a long servo arm, try Howes they advertise in the MB mag they do sail arm servos.

Hi Simon,
I have a Revell Gato waiting to be converted to a static diver, but I am waiting for another more experienced model submariner to do his first.
If you just want a surface runner then all you are making is a boat, and you have already done that.
Have you tried over on the Other Forum?, its Mayhem over there.

I have just noticed that several members of the Dover Model Boat Association are on the front cover of the Aniversary Edition of Model Boats, the photo was taken at Chantrys Regatta at Blue Water in Kent.
I am the one wearing a blue MBA club tee shirt with my Membership Badge at my waist.
Fame at last!.

Hi Colin,
You dont say what size Hull, I being a bit tight use what ever I ca lay my hands on.
The Hull will be watertight so it rearly doesnt matter that much, 1/4" ply will do for the ribs and the Keel. Check out Skips, they are a great source of boat building supplies, its all going to be painted .
Where are you ?.

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
