Thread: North Wales Model Boat Rally

So sorry to cause offence. It was not my intention to do so. My comment was actualy aimed at Dave's rather aggresive and unnecessary reply to The Fat Controller.

Once again, apologies for not making myself clear and causing upset..

I once went on a cricket tour of Scotland, finishing off at Leith in Edinburgh. The cricket they played was not up to much. We never lost a game (although every player in our team was either a pro or ex pro). That said, the Scots make the very best hosts and they kept drinking us under the table!!!1Happy days!!

I totally agree with you about giving them room in the case, but that is a lot easier at that mini scale, not so easy when the model is over a yard long!!!

A beautiful job by the way. I would love to learn your skills and have a go at building in that size.

Scotland you say.....Well to avoid a tirade of abuse from our Scottish friends, lets just say, they don't have any grounds up to Test standard!!
As for the ENGLISH FA cup final being played in Wales, there was almost a revolution about it.

It's NOT  a game, barry
it's WAR. LOL.

So sorry, but was trying to avoid firing the first broadside.......

Ah well lets get on with it the....War is least until August..

As for that Swalec Stadium, we have to be politically correct these days and have a test match in Wales. Old Trafford, where I spent many happy days as a youngster, is simply not up to the job at the moment. It has been allowed to deteriorate considerably, but is now having a complete refit....

A few more pictures to bring us up to date.

I have started attaching the rubbing strakes, very slowly to avoid splitting the wood. Also completed some of the galley detail. As little of this area will be seen on the finished model, there is no need to go over the top on detailing.

Now that I am really looking forward to. Reckon your lot are favourites, but you never can tell. Modelling will have to take a back seat for that. 
Thread: looking for a boat

Sorry Brian. I know of a very good static one, built by my father over 20 years ago. I think it is possible to convert, but am not too sure. The boat is based in the North Manchester area.
16/06/2009 20:56:31

Where are you based. Do you want a working model or a static built one?

She makes up into a great model. Original design was by the late Frank Hinchliffe, who started up Caldercraft Models..

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.
