First published nearly 50 years ago, this is ideal monthly reading if you love building model boats. Covering every type of model boat including warships, tugs, lifeboats and historical ships, with a special emphasis placed on scale modelling and radio controlled boats. Each issue features kit and model reviews, show reports, news from the boat modelling world and regular expert columns. Model Boats magazine publishes 13 great issues a year.
With 84 carefully considered pages to play with we’ve really packed it in to the March issue, as you’ll see from the fit-to-burst contents page. Taking pride of place on the cover is another unorthodox design from the Ashley Needham stable, this time recreating the obscure 1922 Farman Hydroglisseur (hydro glider) or, to you and I, an early French fan boat. Ashley jovially describes it as an air-propelled camper van and goes on to detail the construction of his unique semi-scale model… Offering an opportunity to lift the late-winter spirits, the London Model Engineering Exhibition is always well attended by the model boating fraternity and this year was no exception. Read the editor’s report and check out some outstanding examples of excellence in model boat building… John Parker takes another dip into the annals of history with an account of the rise and fall of Keil Kraft. Oh, and speaking of regular columnists, Dave Wooley recently stumbled across an outstanding model of Bismark that’s being made entirely of photo-etch metal parts and, quite honestly, is staggeringly impressive. It’s all inside along with our new letters page, Phil Scales’ beautifully detailed Caldercraft Imara tug conversion, more sail making advice, steam matters, submarine stuff, a scratch-built model of the merchant ship SS Beaverford (that heroically fended off theAdmiral Scheer and paid the ultimate price) and lots, lots more.
