Model Boats

I started reading Model Boats in 1963, the whole scene has changed dramatically in those intervening years and sadly it seems that it is mostly older people who read the mag and keep the hobby alive, I have returned to the hobby after nearly 30 years away, the guidance offered in the magazine is most helpful Reviewed Monday, March 30, 2020

What can I say? By far the best modelling magazine ever. I started with Model Maker April 1956! Reviewed Thursday, February 13, 2020
