FREE PLAN – Nomad
Glynn Guest presents a new semi-scale model based on a small tramp steamer
This semi-scale model is based on the small tramp steamers that might have been found plying their trade in remote out of the way ports in bygone times. Nomad is built to a scale of approximately 1:40 to 1:50 (1:43 is O Gauge scale) and hull construction is from timber and plywood giving the model a length of 34 inches (863mm), a beam of 5 inches (125mm) and a weight of 9.5 pounds (4.3kg). It is designed for r/c operation using either a small steam engine or an electric motor.

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.
In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.
The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!
I look forward to receiving your suggestions.
Colin Bishop - Website Editor
