I`m wondering how I`ll get in all those crook `n` nannies when it comes painting time?

Still got the floats to make yet.......all 48 of `em!

Would'nt it be better to spray them Bob, or even dip them  and then whizz off the excess into a big tin and then there would be no clogging.

I think spraying is a good idea.

Hi Bob,

I agree with Ducky, the wheel is really looking the business now, can't wait to see the floats on them.

Again I'm with Ducky - go with the dip, can see it being a nightmare spraying with the floats on, unless you dismantle it first.

If you do go with the dip, make sure your wearing your best suit and standing in the middle of the living room !

Cheers - Ken

Hello Ken,

The floats are on now..............see latest picture.........and in fact they`re already on the ship.........just to see how they look.........It`s a pity Brunel didn`t make that strong!

I`ll not be glueing them in yet........that`s a bit too drastic!

Spraying is the way to go............Dunkin` `em seems a little risky to me!

I must say, I am really  enjoying building this model and will feel quite lost when it`s finished

Hi Bob,

No need to feel lost when you've completed this one - just use it as a practice run for building a bigger one !

Just noticed the new picture - does look good - did notice however you never offered the cakes around !

  I'll have to get round to your house before all that cake gets eaten,and save you from yourself Bob

I don't know about getting the boat downstairs,it will be a problem getting YOU down stairs if you keep eating cakes that size

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.
