25th Anniversary Show of the Malta Association of Model Engineers
DAVE ABBOTT reports
There were many members from the AME in attendance during the days I was at the show and with their usual hospitality they made me most welcome. The AME caters for all sections of the hobby from model engineering, plastic modelling, dioramas and model boats. Model boats have a great following on Malta and generally consist of scratch built, conventional kits, plastic kits and even cardboard models.
Contact details are via their website: www.a-m-e.org. The 2009 exhibition will actually be held in the month of May rather than in the Autumn, so please check the website for the exact dates. On that note, I will let the pictures do the talking!

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
