Magazine Description

In this issue

This 100 pages Model Boats Winter 2017 Special Issue includes a New Plan Feature for the Fairey Huntress 23 to 1:12 scale. The plan, now available via Sarik Hobbies, has been designed by Dave Milbourn and we include his comprehensive and supporting construction article. In addition, there is a full Kit Review by John Elliott of the new Mountfleet Models S.T. Kerne tug kit, and Andrew Dalton describes his Gold Medal award winning model of the late-19th Century battleship, HMS Renown. This Special issue has for its second thread a theme of 'Improving your Modelling Skills' and for this, John Parker is covering in depth the subject of building a fully working static diving submarine from scratch and Richard Simpson, who in his other life is Chief Engineer on a cruise liner, discusses the subject of detailing, and how best to do it really well. I am also pleased that Ron Rees returns to this pages demonstrating how to build a small vacuum forming machine for our home workshops and Chris Drage who has written the mini-series about Waterline Dioramas in the regular Model Boats magazine, presents a nice piece about converting the Tamiya O and P Class destroyer kit into something rather better and more specific. I would also like to say a big ‘Thank You’ to Colin Bishop who has proof read virtually all the articles in this Special Edition whilst I was on holiday in September and early October. He has ably supported me for many years now, both on our website and its forum, and during my extended cruise holidays. I hope in this Special 100 Page Special issue that there is something for all those who have a passion for model boats in their various forms, and please don't forget to visit our website and participate in our Model Boats Forum. Model Boats is also on Twitter and Facebook for those readers who like to use social media.
