Hi 'Poppa'. You shouldn't have to wait at all. Images uploaded are available immediately for use.  Check that you've uploaded them correctly.

Hi I have also sent some images to add to my existing album, I sent them a few days ago and as yet have not been approved. The image and file sizes were correct so I assumed that there was a problem with the model boat website server.

Hi Len

Just load your picture into 'Photoshop' or similar program,  Select 'Image Size' and set to 100w x 120h.  This will shrink the image and just re-save as a Jpeg. Opt out of the paint prog, find your new image, right click and select properties to confirm size.  If ok just upload.

I don't know why the instructions say 100 x 120, as if you look at all the other pictures, including Vinnies (photograph) they are only 50 x 60 !

Cheers Ken

My dear Ken 

What do you mean 8 stone (I wish) and just what do you do with your third leg? Did'nt Rolf Harris have a song about you. I spent 3 years on the Isle of Man and never came across anyone with 3 legs.

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
