Question, how exactly are we posting the plans on the site ?? At a miserable 250k or whatever?  I suppose this would do to give the basics of your design. My 1/4 size Noah`s Ark will never be done justice at only 250k.  My PAD tool is already busy (Pencil Aided Design-HB)

Are we limited to one design or can we submit multiple entries?

Good question. I would say one entry per person, personally...unless there are only 3 entries in which case you could bung in another few for interest ! (snowing here as well)   Ash

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
