This issue includes a Full-Size Complimentary Free Plan worth £12.50 for Kirisame, a semi-scale WW2 Japanese destroyer. The plan has been drawn by Glynn Guest and as with all his plans, it makes into a practical working radio controlled model that can built by someone with hand tools and basic model making skills. In addition, Victor Croasdale has converted the Lindberg plastic kit of a US Navy Fletcher class destroyer to radio control and Dr. Marcus Rooks turns the clock back with his Jetex powered boat.

We are fortunate to be able to include some pictures of HMS Clyde to 1:48 scale, a fine reader's model and have a centre pages photo feature from Scale Model World at Telford in November. Many model boaters' visit this event, because although it is run under the auspices of the International Plastic Modellers Society, there are an increasing number of large scale plastic model boats that are of interest to radio control enthusiasts, for conversion to radio control.

We also have the usual regulars of Range Finder, where Dave Wooley is continuing with his Deans Marine HMS Skirmisher project; John Parker has a look at Tri-ang and FROG Nautical Products and Richard Simpson discusses Pressure Gauges for model steam plants.

Model Boats Winter Special 2014

This Special Edition of Model Boats includes a comprehensive Plan Feature for a US Coast Guard Picket Boat by John Parker and two other major articles, one about radio control by Dave Milbourn and one for everything you need to know about getting started in steam written by Richard Simpson. Both of these contributors are passionate about their hobby and experts in their respective fields. In addition, Glynn Guest has a thoughtful piece about using basic mathematics when designing models and determining 'will it ' or will it not'! Dave Wooley is an acknowledged expert model maker as well as being enthusiastic about warships, their models and everything to do with them, and he has supplied a short article on airbrushing and what you need to know to get started. This form of painting is widely used in all model making disciplines and it is a skill well worth having.

The 1:12 scale Feature Plan, obtainable from MyHobbyStore for the 38 foot US Coast Guard Picket Boat is as always, CAD prepared by John Parker and it is to the same high standard as his previous models and plans in this magazine. His supporting article describing its construction sequence makes this a really attractive project for model boat builders of all skill levels.

The Model Boat Convention 2014 at Haydock Park welcomed back the Russian modellers who did so well at the recent Naviga World Championships. They brought along their models and not unsurprisingly, did rather well in the competition! Colin Bishop went to the bi-annual Model Shipwright Society Exhibition in Kent and photographed some of the remarkable models on display. So these two reports show the top class models being built world-wide.
