The staff of Model Boats magazine were seen fleeing the sinking ship when it hit rock bottom and employed
Bluebird to write feature articles.

Congratulations John, long past time that your Master Builds on Mayhem received a wider audience.

Take no notice of Dicky - he's just jealous.  :}

Second Derek, mind you I would probably expect a free signed one, would just have to wait till he learns how to write.

You mean Bloobs hasn't given you a copy yet, maybe is giving all his friends a copy first.

Well, my copy of Model Boats Magazine arrived this afternoon - the only thing I can do is apologise for the photograph - Nah he wasnt a stunt double - but as suggestion has been made - Enlarge this Photograph - Stick it in your window - and it will definitely keep all the burglars and wanted folk away.   I am so glad the Editor took the Wanted notice off the bottom.  :} :}

Joking aside though, there are one or two people on and off this Forum who I would like to say thank you to - because they were of great help to me with encouragement and actually helping me with the article.  So thank you.

aye

My copy of Model Boats should be here in the next few days (it takes a while for the postman to get to Australia  :-) ). I'm looking forward to it as I have a copy of the Shamrock plan.
