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 84 page issue includes two major feature articles. The first is for Brenda, a fine model built by Colin Bishop of a classic fishery protection vessel. The model was started in 1992 and then other interests impinged on his model making, before circumstances changed and work properly recommenced a couple of years ago. The second featured model is S. S. Mullogh, and this month we have Part One (of six) by Phil’ Button for his unique steam and sail propelled model. He will be describing in depth the problems that arose along the way and the means used to overcome them. Bob the Duck is very different and we welcome Eric Morse-Brown who has successfully converted a plastic duck into a functioning and realistic version, the novel feature being that it actually paddles to move around the water. Gareth Jones has a comprehensive report from the CADMA organised Doncaster model boat show, an event that is always popular in that part of the UK. Colin Bishop was on hand at Portsmouth when HMS Queen Elizabeth arrived, and he has supplied some super pictures for a Gallery, plus we also have the usual regulars and so I hope there is something here for all our readers.
