Hi Derek

Model Slipway do the fittings for the fireboat, not sure if they are the right scale for your one, but worth a call, or check out their web site

Hi Phil and Peter    

Wow great response, Thank you for that, actually i think it is 34" i'll keep you posted. It was I/C but I've converted it too electric. Sea trials in Clapham pond this week end. Sould the boat be entirely water tight ie deck covers ect. When in the bath i found out how much water can splash over the stern so that getting sealed.

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.
