Hi Tim

I don't know if this is true or just a popular myth but some or all of the main guns are supposedly targeted on South Mims service station.

It says in the write up from my Sunday paper TV Guide that they do fire one of the guns! I assume with blanks!

I'd heard it's Scratchwood Services - or is that the same place? If so then they should be redirected towards Watford Gap SS - and fired!

if this thread has changed to naval targets, I would be very grateful if they would just lob a few over Newington and the Thames into a rather large building on the north bank. I’m sure that would unite the country at this present time.

In keeping with the finest artillery tradition, someone could perhaps chalk on ‘Love from Nicola’. devil

The Belfast would need to lob her shells over the bend in the river, they would go south of the Shard & could indeed demolish the parliament buildings. wink

If anyone builds plastic kits, Airfix are planning to re-introduce their 1:600 scale HMS Belfast kit. This release has been delayed a couple of times but is now planned for February 2019. They are re-releasing a number of kits from yesteryear.

There are other manufacturers offering HMS Belfast but I understand the Airfix one is quite an accurate kit.

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
