Can somebody give me some information on the amazing collection of model boats on display at Beale Park. They are truly awesome. Were they all donated by individuals and were they all once operational? I felt like a kid at a sweet shop when I visited there in June!

Oops!  I'm told that this was a temporary display!  Sure were some magnificent models there.

They can be either.

Richard Howard who runs the museum will accept donations or purchase models.

There is also a huge barn full on the way out!!

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.
