I am currently working on a model boat built from scratch, but copied from a plan in Model Boats and have figured out that if I was to place figures on it they would either be 1/9 or 1/10 in scale. However, finding such figures in those scales is not easy, as what I've seen so far are not suitable, either they are too heavy (e.g. made from resin), look like toys rather than models (e.g. toy figures from Woolworths), are military or naval figures, or are made standing. 

What I am looking for are two seated figures, preferbly one male and one female, in civilian clothes suitable for hot climates, and who look like a couple going out to enjoy themselves riding on an  airboat in somewhere like the Florida Everglades. Can anyone suggest somewhere I can look please?

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.
