Model Boats Magazine August 2014

Model Boats Magazine August 2014

Model Boats Magazine August 2014

This issue includes a Full-Size Complimentary Free Plan worth £12.50 for Ixplorer, a research and survey vessel. The plan has been drawn by James Pottinger and it is an unusual and interesting model project. In addition, Brian Roberts builds the Models by Design 1:24 scale semi-kit of Wildcat 53, a windfarm support vessel. Semi-kits are a popular form of model boat building nowadays, as usually all the basic parts to build the model are included, but the modeller is left to fit it out as desired and add extra detail. This 1:24 scale model is an ideal size, easily portable and Brian has installed brushless motors that are ideal for this catamaran hull and give a scintillating performance.

We also welcome back to these pages Dave Milbourn with this article 'To BEC or not to BEC', in which he describes the options for powering radio control equipment and exactly what the terminology means and how best to maximise its benefits.

Model Boats, in the form of Robin Buckland, was fortunate to be invited to the opening day of a new display of the model tugs that were first seen in children's programmes on television, 25 years ago. At that time Model Boats was the only magazine to run a feature on them and how they worked, so this is a nice follow-up.

In Readers' Models, Barry Martin and Alex Smart describe their unique models. Alex is 83, living in Australia, and building model boats is a great relaxation for him. We do of course also have all the usual regular articles as well, so I hope there is something here for everyone in these pages.
