Gentlemen, I am sorry for the delay in replying to you, I have only just become aware of your postings.
The model took about two years to build and much pleasure was gained from doing research in to how Royal Navy ships of the period were built, decorated and rigged. My main interest is in Merchant Navy ships, and in particular British coasters of the 20th. century so I had a lot to learn.
James, I always say that patience is not required when you are doing something you enjoy, patience is required for chores and the mundane.
Pierre, don't lose faith, I've been making models for nearly sixty years and I'm still learning and trying to improve.

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
