Issue Cover

Model Boats  |  January 2017  


This 84 Page issue includes Part One for Lucy G, a radio controlled model yacht that Phil Button has converted to have a conventional and modern sailing rig, but which can also use the unusual Flettner Magnus Effect revolving sail which will be fully demonstrated in the forthcoming February 2017 issue. In addition, Liz Jones has restored her model of the tea clipper Ariel to full radio control functionality and we have an in-depth report on the outstanding marine models seen at the 2016 Model Engineer Exhibition, held within the Brooklands Museum complex.
We also have the usual regulars of Range Finder, Flotsam and Jetsam, Boiler Room and BMPRS News as well as Test Bench and your Reader’s Free Advertisements as well as a report from the International Model Boat Show in Warwickshire. In Reader’s Models, five our readers have their projects featured in this issue and we are very pleased to have them all onboard. The Gallery for this issue features Phil’ Scales’ Shell Centurion model based on a Mountfleet Models kit.
This is the first issue for 2017, albeit going on sale just before Christmas 2016 and I, together with Steve Stoner who designs this magazine and Colin Bishop who looks after the website on my behalf, wish you all the very best for the 2017 New Year.
