Same place you put the sails on the Titanic.

 Hello Vinnie

Damm I knew that I had missed something off that Titanic model.

This latest offering from Bronco (do they used to make toilet paper) must be right up your street as a military modeler in fact it could be said to encapsulate both of your editorial roles in one little kit.

That's a nice kit there Vinnie,  the detailing is superb,  but you could have given us an indication to its size ? - could have put a ruler up on pic9 or 10 for reference.

Was it you or Phil who built the review model ? as both your names are there (I'm guessing Phil did the build and you the web production).  Could have also put some pictures of the finished build, or have I just missed them ?

Come to think of it - was it actually built - as there are only pictures of the various kit parts and nothing of the build its self. !

Cheers - Ken

Good question Ken

A decent set of pictures of the build would be very nice then we could all appreciate this fascinating model, can it be motorised? can it be adapted for radio control? and could it actually swim?

On second thoughts...I don't think I'll bother anymore.

Now Vinnie

Don't open the door to some new goodies and then close it again, I was even thinking of buying this particular kit. 

Perhaps the site could expand to look at things that are model boat related?

Hopeful Paul

Hi Paul, from Ken's comments above, I wasn't sure there would be much interest for reviews on books about ships and boats, and reviews of marine static modelling.

Now, now, Vinnie,

I wasn't knocking the review, I really enjoyed it, it's just when a review of a kit is done in 'our' magazine it normally includes the build as well.  for all we know, when the kit pieces were assembled, it may have turned out to be a washing machine !

As for static models, most boat modellers build both types, and the scratch builders are always looking for books to glean their information from, plus a good read.

and while your there, chuck up some photies of your models, as your kind of modellers are well up when it comes to weathering techniques, which we could all learn from.

Cheers - Ken

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.
