You`re right there, Barry...............Had it been in plastic sheeting, it would have attracted no attention whatsoever!

That may be true ashley, but the satisfaction you get from building with wood is worth all the effort...

Barry, I get satisfaction building in anything  although I do prefer wood. My current project has a wooden hull, but I'm going to build the superstructure in styrene sheet, as it is easier to paint and better represents a metal structure, in my opinion, anyhow.

I know exactly what you mean, a nice model built in wood with minimum filler and such is a joy to behold, but sadly I then splosh paint all over it. sigh    Ashley

Destined to be Black..or should I stain it very dark  mahogany?? It took me  ages to carve and then sand it to get an even curve either side.  Ashley

The sub looks great and must have involved a lot of work.
Here is an idea.....before you paint the sub you could take a casting and make a mold so that you could produce some more hulls and flog them on fleabay.

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
