editing multiple models in one form

Not to worry seem to have sorted it

I would really suggest you look at form_for and then fields_for which then allows you to create a subset of the form specific to the second model that you want to populate.

I had the same problem recently and came across this:

It basically wraps/aggregates several models into one. It makes your
controller leaner, too.
