Issue Cover

Model Boats  |  August 2015  

This issue includes a Full-Size Complimentary Free Plan designed by James Pottinger worth £12.50 for Aboma, a classic 1930's tug that was diesel powered, although having the appearance of a steam tug. In addition we have Part One of Brian Roberts' full in-depth build of the large 1:12 scale Models by Design Wildcat 53 semi-kit, plus reviews of Rivos, by John Elliott, an inexpensive ready to run fast electric model that performs really well and at the other end of the speed scale, a look at the Joysway Dragonforce RG65 class yacht by our new contributor, John Gittins. This radio controlled model yacht, that sails well, provides an easy, quick and inexpensive way into model yacht racing as well as social sailing.
Phil Button returns to these pages with 'Painting Queen Alexandra's Bottom', a tale of a near disaster at the boating lake that has had a happy ending and Andrew Cope has a go at model submarines, building the Speedline Deep Dive VII, now manufactured and marketed by Speedline Models.
In Readers' Models, Graham Buckton describes his THV Vigia, a unique Trinity House Vessel, his superbly built version being based on an inexpensive fibreglass trawler hull purchased by chance at a model show and then using a MyHobbyStore plan.
We also have the usual regulars, with John Parker in particular looking at 'The Holbrook Connection' and answering the question as to why there is a submarine memorial park in Australia that is 400 kilometres from the sea.
So I hope there is something here for all readers of this August 2015 magazine.
