that's a filler primer matey……..fills all the scratches and imperfections....it will have 3 - 4 coats of that all over the boat...

but I wont be doing it or the top coats.

my friend Dave Stavros Jones who is a professional car body repairer and sprayer has volunteered to spray the boat for me, knowing how impatient I am at painting, when all the pieces are in place that need to be painted orange blue or red oxide..

he is going to paint the boat in two pac paint in the spray room.

just like he did for me with these two.

Very nice models, and Pro job too, Neil

Well......My regards to Stavros and Phil Button too

Both nice chaps, we used to met to them at Llanberris and the good old Colwyn Bay annual regatta and the shows of course

Hello Neil

As always you have produced a superb standard of build, no matter how messy I make my workshop I still can't manage your level of skill.

will pass on your message Bob.

well it was like Christmas for a 5 year old today......my new propellers from PROPSHOP have arrived, and I am almost orgasmic...…...they are beautiful.

I just cannot understand how Simon Higgins can sell them for that price. he has to cast them in bronze, drill and tap them with the thread ordered, in my case 4mm, and then grind them down, balance them for weight and then polish them to such a lovely sheen...……..no soldering....all for only 25 quid each.

they are beyond words!

To paraphrase a well known term, '

Behind every great model builder there is messy workshop'

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
