Well, I received my May issue Number 822 of the Model Boats magazine yesterday, this was very pleasant particularly as I managed to beat the dog in getting to it first !!.

With the magazine was a letter about prices increases etc etc, not got a problem with that as costs do go up so must the issue price and is all good. However I was very surprised with was this statement, and I quote “ As you know, first published nearly 50 years ago “ !!, now bearing in mind that the Current Models boats magazine has gone through a few name changes as I detailed on my Useless information page see link.


The 1st Issue was published in December 1950 so in fact the magazine has been running for 68 years, this itself was highly visible on the front cover with 2014 issues showing 64 years and 2015 showing 65 years. So where does the Subscriptions department get Nearly 50 Years From ?.

I think the letter needs updating ..smiley

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
