    I'm a static model boat builder, I build from scratch, and have built from plans. Looking for a model building forum to share and ask questions. I've been building models for about 5 years. I'll post some pictues later.

    Hello, Joined this site as returned to model boats after some years absence and think this site will be useful for info, hints etc. There are no boating hobbyist in my town, nearest boating lake is the superb one at Basingstoke, of which I am a member. Main work is finishing off a Thames Barge (kit)and a Vic Smeed designed Thornycroft MTB. Wishing you a fair wind in your sails. SpidedBruce

    Hello, Just been a member for a short time now and I really enjoy this site. Couple of reasons, I enjoy getting information from different parts of the world, different views. One of my main interests is English Working Sailboats, I find the feedback from the UK guys great! My ancestry is English, having sailed on the ship Abigail in 1628. My enthusiasm has been encouraged by all of the very helpful posts. Fast way to get information and collaboration.
    Regards, Joe

    Always keep researching and finding plenty of useful information. Additionally, I try to share information so not all disappears because of forums closing. Besides, trying to explain and to present was I am doing is a good way to massage my knowledge and my projects to get new perspectives.

    Hi All. Many may already recognise the 'nutter from Munich' ๐Ÿ˜
    but I just wanted to say-
    I first stumbled across this site and enrolled here in 2014 but was still in harness and trundling around the world working with various navies and shipyards on all sorts of naval ships from small Fast Patrol Boats through subs, Corvettes and Frigates up to LPDs, Heli and Escort Carriers. So I didn't have much time for model building (sounds better than 'Modelling' somehow ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ฒ) or contributions to the site, but I did try to keep up to date with advances, as I always did in my profession - Naval COMMS systems - and dipped in and out of this site without getting involved.
    Since I retired last year I have become an active member and have also dipped into, and registered with some, other Model Boat forums in various countries.
    But in all of them I have never found such an international, friendly and knowledgable bunch as on this site. Or such a well organised site where it is 'relatively' easy to find the info you need, or to just ask and get informed answers pronto. Sure there is room for improvement in some areas but "Tempus fugit" and things move on - so is it also on this site.
    I understand that a facelift and changes are afoot๐Ÿ˜‰ whatever the outcome I'm sure you won't find a better web site for informed (bin there done that!) info on model boat / ship building as well as research on the original vessels this side of the asteroid belt!
    Welcome aboard and Happy Building and Sailing,
    All the best, cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Hello!
    Joined a few days ago after retiring from abroad (18 years) and bringing my Krick "Victoria" down, from its well-cosseted storage in my loft. I put her together over 30 years ago... placed new batteries in the R/C... water, gas, squirt of oil on the engine, a long (lit) spill... and yippeeee!
    Just smartening her up now.
    A great site! Thank you

    A place to seek advise and help. Also, a place to join a chat and help and advise others about the problems you overcame.
    A good friendly place to find out what is going on around you and where you can join in.
    Remember, there is no such thing as a "Stupid Question". We have all had that moment.
    No one person has All the answers, but with all these members, someone will know the answer.
    ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ‘ May the Sun be Forever on your Face, and the Wind Forever on your Back.
    Love this Site.
