Just finished Pauls epic piece on varnishing and painting and what an informative piece of work it is.

Thank you for the kind words, I thought that no one had read the piece or that it was such tripe that nobody would pass any comment.
 
Thanks again

Colin,
 
I had expected some comments from the more garrulous members of our little forum, perhaps they are busy at their own keyboards writing groundbreaking articles.

Thank you for your very kind words, it means a lot to me that a well respected craftsman like yourself could be so motivated by just reading my piece.
 
I am really looking forward to seeing your finished model...didnt realise it was going to be the kit....I thought you might scratch build hence the hint at building 1:12.
 
Thanks again
 
Paul

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
