Thread: Kirklees Model Boat Club Summer Open Day
15/07/2019 21:33:00

Was an early start for me up at 6 am and on the road by 6.45 and the weather didn't look too good low cloud and drizzle. However once again the weather was on our side. A very pleasant warm sunny day. Representatives from 15 clubs attended and also 4 traders and of course the RNLI. We had lots of models of all types on display. Some very large lifeboat models were on display by the Lifeboat Enthusiasts Society. There were also some very nice sail models, very brightly coloured so they stood out when they were on the water. We had 3 big hovercrafts also on display. Amongst the scale models there was a huge variety of models. The Editor of Model Boats kindly did the presentations for best tug model and best Kirklees Model. At 2 pm we encourage as many models to be on the water and I am pleased to say we had 32 models of all types and sizes take part. The day finished with the raffle. Thanks to everyone who travelled whether it be a short or long distance, to once again make the day a success.

Hi Kevan this may be a difficult kit to locate went out production many years ago. I think if you find one not started you will be looking at £250 .If you can source the bofors made by Graupner then add a further £60. I have the kit and the bofors but it is not for sale.

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.
