Model Boats Magazine September 2014

This bumper issue has 100 pages and includes Part One of a major mini-series for a model of the Botnia Marine Targa 37 Police Launch, the fantastic plan being available now,. Ron Rees has built this model from polystyrene foam to create a very light and fast scale replica, powered by a brushless motor, but it can also be built from wood or driven by a traditional brushed types of powerplant. The plan, is superbly drawn with 3D sketches and diagrams to facilitate model construction.

2014 is the 100th Anniversary of the beginning of World War One and to mark the occasion we have Part Two of Dave Wooley's critique on the warships of that great conflict and John Parker, one of our numerous Australian readers and contributors, has an excellent article about that country's first submarines of the E Class.Continuing the theme of warships from the early part of the last century, John Elliott has reviewed and built the 1:48 scale radio controlled semi-kit of a Steam Picket Boat, recently released by Chylds Hall Model Shipyard. A small model, but great fun nonetheless, and it has proved to be able to cope very well with the average pond conditions nowadays.

The Alvis Stalwart - was it an ammunition lorry or was it a boat? Well, a bit of both really and Ashley Needham's model of it, certainly swims without problems! He is a regular supporter of our unique associated model boating forum, where advice can be gained from many of our leading modellers.We also have all the usual regular articles, and more, so hopefully there is something in this bumper 100 page issue to inspire and motivate readers to further pursue this great hobby of ours.

She was a vessel of 7,392 tons gross and might truly be described as one of the ocean greyhounds of her period, a long sleek steel vessel carrying a modified barque rig and two raking funnels, she looked and was a real thoroughbred.

From the model-man s point of view she has much to offer, providing plenty of scope for fine detail about her docks and superstructure without the monotonous repetition work of multitude of identical fittings to be made for the modern liner. Her rig too provides the interesting features of a sailing ship's spars without the amount of detail found in the true square-rigger, while lastly, it is out of the ordinary run of models. 1:192 scale 850mm
