Magazine Description

In this issue

This issue we have the second part of the Fairey Huntsman full-build article, the plan being featured in the recent January 2015 issue and available from MyHobbyStore. We are pleased to include this month, instead of the usual Ship Gallery, a Photo Feature Gallery for a Lesro Sportsman, this r/c model having been started by Les' Rowell the designer just before his untimely death in 1992, and now completed by his grandson John Long 23 years later, it having languished in a loft during the intervening years. Included in this issue are full photographic reports from the 2015 International Model Boat Show held at Leamington Spa this last November and Scale Model World organised by the International Plastic Modellers Society at Telford at the same time. This latter event has much of interest to model boating enthusiasts, not least because of the huge and fantastically detailed 1:200 scale Trumpeter plastic kits of famous warships, including HMS Nelson and soon to be released HMS Hood, models that readily lend themselves to radio control conversion and that were on display or being previewed. Apart from this, we have the usual regulars including a look by John Parker at the once well-known Marinecraft kits marketed by Model Aerodrome Ltd, once a leading UK chain of model shops. So together with the usual regular columns, I hope there is something here for everyone in these pages. Finally, as this issue is the first to be published in 2016, it being on sale from the 15th January, I and the magazine designer Steve Stoner, as well as Colin Bishop who looks after the website and forum for me, wish all our readers a very prosperous New Year and 2016.
