Love the imagery of the old maul song. There was a film with air boats like that in, can’t remember the one.

The Stirling engine boat is fabulous. Always fancied a lathe, but not sure I would either get the use from it or be good enough. Don’t suppose I will be making steam engines soon.


Stardust 2007 ?.

Never had a problem in the past.

Thread: May 2021 Model Boats Mag

From Pocketmags "Unfortunately, it seems that the publisher is a little late uploading this issue to our system. I am currently awaiting a response on when they expect to correct this, so will update you as soon as I have more information."

So as Colin say there appears to be a problem which is being looked into, do not expect much until after the BH. But it is available on here. Things happen..

30/04/2021 18:46:20

Yes Pocket Mags better options as you can download it and read offline, however you only have access from when your Digi subscription started, unlike here which goes back to I think 2007

I once said One year I would build every model from the plan for a year, giving that you had normally 2 months between plans, I am still waiting to try that challenge !!

Make your own contribution to the Website

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
