    Hi All,

    I am not a sign maker, just an old person who played with little tin pop-pop boats before WW2 when they were probably the favorite toys for small boys.
    For lack of anything smarter to do, I am trying to encourage development of a new generation of pop-pop boats that should look more like 19th century steamboats, and less like recycled tin cans. There are not many kits or plans for small models of old steamboats, but there are a lot of designs for card stock display models of steamboats that could become working models, if they were printed on something stronger and more waterproof than card stock. Members of a Yahoo discussion group at <http://groups.yahoo.com/group/rcmugi/> and a forum at <http://www.spadtothebone.com/> use corrugated plastic materials like Coroplast and Corex as their principal material for building radio controlled models of airplanes and boats, so I would like to get replies from sign makers who might be interested in "converting" card stock display models of planes and boats into working models that could be developed by printing designs on plastic versions of card stock and cardboard.
    The best card stock designs are mostly copyrighted, so it would probably be necessary to work with the copyright owners to develop the best working models. Designs that are not copyrighted can be found on a Yahoo discussion group at <http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Paper_Models/>.

    Best wishes, Frank McNeill

    HI Frank. My entry to this biz was thru model airplanes. Similar I guess.
    If you have specific patterns that you need printed, I can help. There are issues with file conversions..winter would be a better time to do this.
    Cheers! from Beautiful BC.
    Ken
