|Thread: Advice needed|
Thanks for the replies and apologies for being late with a reply, but I have been away without internet access. Took the time whilst I was away to read all the various manuals etc and have started on the Billings Sanson, as it is a combination of plastic hull and wooden superstructure. So far so good.
Will let you know how I get on with it, and yes one day I will finish the Trent as well
Now have some time to start building the large number of kits that I have gathered and now looking for some advice on which would be the best kit to start again with. Have built before Robbe Seawolf and Neptun. Also Midwest Boothbay lobster boat. Have half built Model Slipway Trent ( railings are proving somewhat frustrating. Kit list is as follows
Robbe: U-47, Schnellboot 130, Westeriff, Dusseldorf Fireboat
Billings: HMS Renown, Samson 2
Krick: Victoria Steam Launch
Aerokits - RAF Launch
Mountfleet: Admiralty Coaster C-62
Talhoer: Atunero Del Cantabrio
Saitio: Polar Star Whale Catcher
The latter two are especially for when I have refound my skills in my opinon, but open to any advice

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
