I know enamel paint is dissolved by petrol, as I once found out to my cost on a motorcycle petrol tank, but I don't know with glow fuel.

The standard approach with such things is to always do a test piece just to be absolutely sure of the compatibility.

It's a blooming long time since I ran glow and diesel powered boats, but I suppose the old way will still be ok. All we did was paint as needed, then add a coat or two of fuel proofer from the model shop. Some guys took real pride in the interior's of their Catchalots, Snappers etc, that's showing my age!

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
