The pictures look great, thanks for sharing.
I am coming back to model boat construction after 'a few' years away. All my efforts before have been balsa sheet or pre-formed hulls so it's time to learn new methods and skills. As I have the boiler and engine for a steam launch I have started a Miranda to take them.
However I have never completed a plank on frame boat and I have several probably very stupid questions. The information on the web seems to skip over the techniques to achieve close fitting planks, are there any good descriptions or video links?
Are there any construction pictures of the Miranda hull that could help me?

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
