Issue Cover

Model Boats  |  February 2014  


This issue features a comprehensive construction article by Glynn Guest for a semi-scale Big Gun Monitor (please note that the Plan for this project is only available with the print version of the magazine). This model is built from balsawood and only basic model building skills are required, so this is an easy project to create an unusual warship.

In addition, Gareth Jones returns with his working model of Nessie, the Loch Ness Monster, something that is guaranteed to create a crowd of onlookers!

Paul Thomason, a regular supporter of the Model Boats Website Forum has built a working hovercraft from foamboard, thus enabling lightweight construction and with little preparation for painting required. We also have the usual regulars including a Gallery for THV Patricia, a report from the Blackpool Model Boat Show, as well as Range Finder and Flotsam & Jetsam, in which John Parker is looking at Taycol motors.

Paul Freshney - Editor

Model Boats

I started reading Model Boats in 1963, the whole scene has changed dramatically in those intervening years and sadly it seems that it is mostly older people who read the mag and keep the hobby alive, I have returned to the hobby after nearly 30 years away, the guidance offered in the magazine is most helpful Reviewed March 30, 2020
