The June issue of Model Boats which is on retail newstrade sale 15th May, includes a Free Plan and a free to enter competition to win one of five D Class Lighter kits from Mobile Marine Models.
The magazine has an article by expert model builder Tom Gorman about building a scratch built showcase model of M.T. Lizrix and Terry Small reviews the ARTR Alexander von Humboldt by Graupner. The Gallery this month is extended to include the work of two of our regular contributors, Fraser Gray and Colin Bishop, with an article on PS Waverley as well as the centre page picture feature, both being of assistance to modellers.
The Free Plan is of a Scottish 38 foot Fifie by James Pottinger that would build into a nice, practical working model. In addition there are other special features as well as the usual regulars including Range Finder with Part Two of a Photo file on USS Salem.

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
