Issue Cover

Model Boats  |  June 2016  


Model Boats June 2016 includes a Full-Size Complimentary Free Plan worth £12.50 for Le Capricieux, a 1:144 semi-scale model based on the French Le Fantasque class of super-destroyer of the 1930's. The model is designed by Glynn Guest and full step by step building instructions are included in this issue, starting on Page 10.

We also feature a super new static model of the USS Alarm, an 1874 ironclad torpedo ram warship that has been built by John Hollis. This warship had a unique form of propulsion that has been exquisitely modelled by John. In addition, we welcome back Andy Cope who has built Sea Rover from the Vintage Model Boat Company, a manufacturer that excels at producing wood retro-model kits from the 1950's and 1960's, that were very much the norm' before GRP and styrene became popular.

This issue, which is prepared in March and early-April, has reports from Brighton Modelworld held in late-February and the March Spring Model Boat Show at the National Waterways Museum at Ellesmere Port. The former is a multi-hobby event in Brighton, but the latter which is organised by volunteers, is widely viewed as the opening event for our 2016 Summer Season. Its venue is excellent for model boating and is very popular with model tug enthusiasts. We also have all the usual regular columns, including Range Finder, Flotsam & Jetsam, Boiler Room, Readers' Models and BMPRS News, so I hope there is something here for all our readers.
