hi boat builders

just a line or to about myself

many years ago i built model planes in bulsa wood. i have purchased a model boat

the h.m.c. "tracker" which i intend to build over the next few months in the evenings

instead of watching a load of rubbish in my lounge.

i am a keen diy er & fushia grower in summer time but needed something to get me threw the dark days of winter.

i am self employed repairing cars for a living which i still enjoy after 44 years.

look forward to completing the build & then go on to building MOONRACKER

hi heckner

i am still building moonraker, the project was always going to be a winter affair, due to my other hobbies.

due to illness this winter gone i am way behind with this build.

i have completed most of the hull section & got the thing water tight & motors fitted.

getting the boat water tight & beefing up supports around water inlets was very time consuming & slow

will be starting build again shortly

keep you up to date

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.
