It was Marine Modelling International. One of the issues is available on Magazine Exchange. You might be able to track down the others on Ebay.

Hello Jeff

Got some useful info for you

I made the Louis Heloise model in 94 and I can post you a few photos of the build

It was a very nice model, big, bulky and handsome

I fitted a motor drive and prop, which is a handy feature at times

Just got around to painting my hull, Norfolk green Toplac, this has been a long build, it looks really good.

second coat tomorrow, then I can start the finishing off.

next the deck, clear varnish, then the mast and bits, going to paint them white.

Yes Bob I'll get around to that shortly, saying that I've been building it for around 4 - 5 years now.

toplac paint is expensive, but a great paint to use, now the hull is painted I'll finish off the deck and deck house then photo time.

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.
