MODEL BOAT CONVENTION at HAYDOCK 2014
I have been closely involved with Paul Thomason on the Model Boats website for quite sometime now , Paul actually has a Doctorate in Structural Engineering and is also very knowledgeable in the theory of sailing craft
Paul is also very active in raising funds for charity......CHRISTIES etc, by designing model boats on CAD and offering the designs FOC on condition that the recipient makes a donation to one of his selected charities.
This is done by a secure procedure involving...."Just giving"
Look here ....... "model-boat-fundraising.co.uk"....For further information
Paul has designed quite a number of models and together, we have built a large selection of the craft and also posted," blow by blow " builds on the MB website
To obtain greater publicity of his work, Paul had booked a stand at the above show and together we attended with our finished models and publicity leaflets etc for public scrutiny!
The organiser and Lady organiser, Jean and Arthur Barlow, picked out a handy spot near the Pond and car park, due to Paul`s infirmity
The stand and location was very impressive well stocked with models
We had on show...THOR...SEASPRAY...RED LEADER...ELLIE...BRUTUS...SLOMO 2...LADY JANE 5...The ABELL drive unit and two plastic mock ups of LADY JANE 3 and LADY JANE 4, plus PLAN CD`s, brochures and sample print outs
