Magazine Description

In this issue

"This issue includes a major Feature Article remembering the huge contribution that Norman Ough made to model shipbuilding before he died in 1965, now fifty years ago. Alistair Roach has spent many hours researching the craftsmanship, model plans and life of Norman Ough, for his major article which provides an insight into Norman's legacy to our hobby today. Tim Henderson is a new contributor and he has built a fully functioning radio controlled, steam powered, scale model of the iconic Cunard liner Queen Elizabeth 2, perhaps better known as the QE2, a challenge that he has overcome exceptionally well. We also have the second part (of two) for the Wildcat 53 Models by Design semi-kit of a windfarm support vessel, ably constructed by Brian Roberts who had previously built the smaller 1:24 scale version and he liked it so much, he then constructed this larger version. The National Model Boat Show at Coalville and the Harrogate National Model Engineering and Modelling Exhibition have reports from Anthony Addams and Dave Wooley respectively, these being annual events held in the middle part of the UK and which are very popular with model boating enthusiasts. Liverpool Model Boat Club recently celebrated its 50th Anniversary, and Dave Wooley was on hand to record it for Model Boats magazine readers, as it is always nice to recognise the longevity and contribution to the hobby made by clubs. In addition, we have all the usual regular articles including Range Finder, Boiler Room, Flotsam and Jetsam, BMPRS News and Test Bench, so I hope there is something here for all model boat enthusiasts and once again for this month's issue, the outstanding Norman Ough article is something very special. Paul Freshney - Editor"
