The Sri Perlis pictures show only a fast attack type boat the one I'm thinking of was more frigate size and I don't know who 's plan it was but I think the ship name began with M or B

I also started another ship, can't remember the name but it was a foreign navy small ship with a what can best be described as a full width hoop/wing on the stern also from the sixties, malaysian seems to ring a distant bell.

As you say Charles unusual design

Many thanks Tony, now to decide on materials and methods.Thinking plank on frame out of H.I.P.S. maybe outer layer of diagonalplanks. Will build a test section if it doen't work to well or to be to expensive. will revert to balsa with thin ply outer diagonal planks.

Dim distant memory of gum paper strips not working out to well which was why I din't finish the original.

I have an original of the plan out of the December 1963 Model Maker by R.A. Sweet tjhat I started to build in my teens. Unfortunately the page with the build description on has a large chunk missing out of it from the second column top paragraph. can anyone help me with a copy of the page (592)?

I am thinking of making a scaled up R/C model but would like to know how the original was built.

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
