Issue Cover

Model Boats  |  April 2016  


This 76 page issue includes a Full-Size Complimentary Free Plan worth £12.50 for the Pilot Boat No. 726, a late-20th Century Swedish craft, being sold out of service in 2010, but still in existence today. The plan has been drawn by James Pottinger and it makes for a smart and interesting model project. In addition, Andy Cope returns with an excellent article about the Aeronaut range of wooden hulled leisure craft and they must be be good, because Andy has built four of them. We also have Part Two (of three) of Phil Button's TSS Manxman project in which he describes the design and installation of the steam plant.
In Readers' Models we feature Canadian Reader Bryon Calverley's outstanding 1:18 scale scratch built model of SS Master, plus have John Edwards' models of HMS Naird, and in Flotsam & Jetsam, John Parker looks at Pittman motors, the once very highly regarded electric power plants for our model boats.
Apart from these headline articles, Dave Brumstead visits the popular annual London Model Engineering Show at Alexandra Palace. This event has a strong marine presence with considerable trade support, albeit overall being targeted on model engineering, although much of which overlaps into our model boating hobby.
We have of course also all the other usual regular articles including Range Finder, Flotsam & Jetsam and Boiler Room, and so I hope there is something here for everyone in these pages of this April 2016 issue of Model Boats.
