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.
This issue includes an article for Varmint, designed by John Goodyear, a new easy to build wooden RG65 Class radio controlled model yacht. The comprehensive construction article starts on Page 10 and the full-size plan, together with sail diagrams is now readily available via the Plans Service. In addition, Phil’ Button returns to these pages with an article describing the restoration, and the attendant problems, of a paddle steamer model purchased from eBay and Andy Cope gets a 40 years old Aerokits Solent Lifeboat finally on the water, it having also been obtained inexpensively via the Internet. Phil’ Scales has re-modelled in Cory Towing colours the well-known Tito Neri kit, and has enhanced its detail enormously, the Photo Feature being on Pages 42 and 43. Richard Simpson visits Tony Green Steam Models, who manufacture and retail a range of boilers and steam engines that are suitable for model boats of all sizes and Dave Wooley updates readers about the newly improved Fleet Air Arm Museum and what it now has to offer. We also have all the usual regular columns, including Range Finder, Flotsam & Jetsam, Boiler Room and Test Bench, so I hope there is something here for all our readers.
