We already have a photo contest in the shape of the gallery where members can vote on the photos.

I like the sketch/plan idea.. How about then a competition to design something different for , say, younger persons to make, or those inexperienced, or like myself who enjoy "la dfference" . Entries to be on one or possibly 2 sheets of A4 only and showing the main features/any special features/dimensions and some construction notes, but nothing too detailed or it would be too busy to see on the website at the normal low resolution. A knockout could be done initially to whittle designs down to , say 10 out of the 1000 entries (!), and these 10 could then be further detailed before final voting. Ashley

Re the gallery.. i dont see that much evidence of voting going on ???? and I am as much to blame for that as the rest of you !!!

Morning Ashley

I am really keen on the plan idea and I think that Ron is almost in a position where he will be able to launch the competition in all of its glory.

I am also looking forward to locking horns with you in the design arena, I have already committed to my design and I am getting a bit worried about what you will come up with.

It will be great fun

Paul

Exactly, as its him wots going to be giving out the free 2 years subscription, Guest article spot in mag, free tools and all expenses paid trip to san Tropez (to study the millionaires super boats, of course)   or do I have it all wrong?

I have discovered an absolutely cracking oddity to compete with, to boot, it was originally steam powered, so that will get a fair few votes on its own , eh  !........  Ashley

On reflection, the winning boat wot i will design will be steam powered, used for fishing, have auxiliary sails and a towing bollard at the back. I might stipulate battleship grey and a big gun on the front. It will definately have all manner of sounds, flashing lights and get on to the plane when required. A working crane would have to be incorporated, and the ships cat will be animated (as will the mouse its chasing)

Oh, and smoke will be coming from the cigarette in the captains mouth, and steam from his coffee cup for that matter. I am not sure you should even bother to enter against such a vessel..

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
