I need help, I would like to build a Motorised plastic duck & am looking for a local club to help me, I live in Rossendale Postcode BB44DW, why would anybody wish to build a Motorised plastic duck? Simple I am a member of the Ramsbottom Rotary club & we hold a duck race each year & would like to have a Motorised plastic duck as a attraction - it takes all sorts, so can any one help me. Thanks & regards Keith

If there is still a model shop in Blackburn, they would know of any clubs in the area.
Or you could try this one :- http://bmmmsuk.yolasite.com/

.or even Bury or Heywood. I recall seeing a model shop near the Bury interchange A LOT of years ago. I was waiting for an East Lancs line train at the time.
A thing to find in the early stages is a gun sport shop to find a decoy duck, the usual starting point. Or maybe a Mothercare branch to see if they have a large "rubber ducky", if yellow is OK.

The model shop disappeared some years ago and the shop has seen a change of use more than once. I knew the owner, he directed the shop more towards model car racing. He was more of a businessman than a dedicated modeller, his previous business before the shop was a petrol station and car repair garage.
Other than the Bury Club, as Malcolm suggests, the Heywood Club is not too far away. Another thought is the Bolton (North West Scale Club) at Horwich.

Hi Keith, my club mates have several ducks and swans we use to amuse the visitor to the park, contact EMBC on the web that might give you a starting point, we are based in the Stockport area so not that far from you

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.
