hi all

will have to excuse me but need to let of a little steam.

been away busy  truckin around the country for a couple of weeks looking forward to getting back home and into the workshop to start on my winter project.

and what do i find? 

the wife has just turned it into a storage shed for the drinks and some of the food for xmas 

and not to mention her ornaments that she has packed up to allow for the decorations.

and when i asked why she put it all in my workshop all i got was """"it has to go somewhere""" .

they just don't understand do they 


fed up ron

Oh I don't know, mate.

you want to get a wife like mine.

earlier this year she allowed me to retire and buy an old MG C roadster to have my mid life crisis in.

Then last night I said I fancied going down to the Goodwood Revival meeting in the car and she said.."Well get a ticket booked then, but don't expect me to come down with you, I'd rather watch model boats sail and that's NEVER"

can't get better than that.

Am I lucky or WHAT?

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
