Yes Was able to download it last Friday, Not seen it that early before.. Reminds me I need to send a note to the editor as the Convention article has Ribble MBC as the club playing with the Fun Boats , where in fact it Was Runcorn and District Scale Model Boats..

You're very welcome, as always, Ray. Enjoyed the morning and a great little marina.

Your Sun Tug plan and model look good.
Knew I had seen a model of Sun XXI before, one appeared on the front cover of Model Boats and Cars Plans Handbook 1978/79. The description reads "Sun XXI built by Alan Waller which won the premier Model Engineer Exhibition award, the Duke of Edinburgh Trophy in 1974. Model features opening doors, sliding hatches and a crew. A similar model can be built from plan MM899. Photographed by Ron Moulton at Welwyn Garden City during Naviga Championships." Plan MM899 is Philip Connolly's 35" (890mm) design.
I've also posted an article from November 1960 Model Maker by Arthur Pollard about the Sun Tugs.

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.
