Just getting up to speed here. Turkey extracted from oven and onto serving dish whilst remaining intact bar the odd unimportant appendage...

Well that went much as I expected - no better.

Glad to get home at about 10pm, hang up the car keys and finally have some peace and quiet - and a drink. I'm beginning to understand the late great W C Fields' comment "There's not a man in America who at one time or another hasn't had a secret desire to boot a child in the ass" as well as many of his pronouncements on 'the devil's brew'.
For fellow Grinches there's a lot more of his wit and charm here **LINK**

In the meantime there's only 363.5 shopping days until the next one...

Happy New Year!

Dave

You should be careful taking iffy americans into your workshop especially when superglue is lying around.

What do you mean 363 days to the next one.......haven't you already started 2019 Christmas shopping, my credit cards are already feeling the 2019 pre-season pinch.

Well, after producing a fair bit of Fairey dust today I was looking forward to collapsing on the settee this evening with a few beers and/or glasses of wine.

But phone went and in-laws have invited us over for drinks and nibbles. At least they are in staggering distance!

So a happy new year to all the forumites and get building those models in 2019 that you keep promising yourselves to do. Apart from Harry, who needs to build less!

Cheers, Chris

Hi Harry

But your wife's reasons for building less are different to mine!

As for completing boats I bloomin' hope so! What's going to hold me up is waiting for warmer weather to do the painting unless I can find somewhere inside to do it.

I'm retiring in three months time so will have more time for future builds.

Cheers, Chris

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.
