Issue Cover

Model Boats  |  January 2016  


This 84 page issue is on sale just before Christmas 2015 and is packed with articles of interest to model boat enthusiasts and builders. The main feature in this issue is Part One (of two) for a new plan being introduced into our MyHobbyStore Plans Service for the classic Fairey Huntsman 31. The plan is CAD drawn by the well-known model boating enthusiast Dave Milbourn, who has built two prototypes to prove the model can be built and it will work and perform just as he intended.
In addition, Phil Button has another fine piece on his work with steam models, this one entitled 'Shutting the Stable Door' where he relates how he overcame an unexpected problem with one of his boats, and all in a practical fashion.
We also have an easy to understand article on 3D printing and what it means for us modellers by Ron Rees, and in 'Not for the Purist', Douglas McGhee shows how it is practical to motorise and radio control waterline model boats.
We have reports from the October 2015 Blackpool Model Boat Show and the September Essex Country Show where Southend MB, together with other clubs, aimed to promote the hobby to a wide general public audience.
There are the usual regular columns including Range Finder and its ongoing HMS Skirmisher project; Flotsam and Jetsam which looks at early literature to encourage youngsters to become involved in this hobby; Boiler Room discusses 'pickling' and BMPRS News visits Kingsbury Water Park for more exciting power boat racing and spills.
This issue is on sale in December 2015 just before Christmas. On behalf of Steve Stoner who designs and lays out the articles in the magazine, Colin Bishop who looks after our website and its forum plus provides the essential editorial cover for me when I am on holiday and myself, I wish you all a very Happy Christmas and Prosperous New Year and thank you for your support for this magazine, now entering its 66th year of publication with continuing excellent worldwide sales.
