Dear All,

Out of interest, do we have any lady members actively building models? - or are we only a male preserve?! Just curious.

Regards, Bernard

Umi is in the USA. She actually runs a model making business and makes superb architectural models (as well as other work). She is a boat builder par excellence and a great engineer. Above all she is generous with her advice and experience.

We also have a very active, youger, female Member. She and her Dad both build models and she has won prizes.

I am also aware of several females who contribute to the Forum but I know nothing of their building efforts.

If your reffering to Hannahs springer,a very well deserved prize,lovely looking boat.
Umi's work is superb and she is generous with her tips.
Cant say that i have seen other female members boats,but the time they let us "play" on them
should be credited.

Hi Polaris

There is an easy way to mail any member even if you only remember a bit of their name.

At the top of every page, next to your avatar there is a link for messages. Click it.

Then on the left hand column select New Message.

Then in the name box, well just next to it, there is a button 'Search Member' of somesuch.

This opens a dearch box. type in 'umi*' the star is for wildcards.
It then give you a list of members who fit that bill.

Click on one, then close the box.
You can now complete your message. :-))
And send it.

Mrs Walrus here. I do not claim to build model boats but I do enjoy sailing them and have proved to be helpful when sails ot fenders are needed for some of the models.

Mrs Walrus not only does a neat set of sails but she also does the other soft furnishuings such as awnings and seats as well as a pretty tidy sail storage bag.  Not to mention running rings around a lot of us in any sailing competition!!!!
