A look at the Cover and Contents of the July 2010 issue of Model Boats on sale 11th June 
This issue has a wide range of material to interest all tastes. Main feature articles include a review of the Sealight puffer kit by Mountfleet Models and a working scratch built radio controlled Indian canoe.

 I am including visits to the Fleetscale factory, the London Canal Museum, Southampton Maritime Museum and the Ellesmere Port Spring Show, as well as a look at Feluccas - Butterflies of the Nile, plus your usual regulars including Range Finder, Period Pieces, Collectors' Corner Minis, Test Bench, Offshore Model Racing News and your other favourites. The centre double page spread Gallery by Jon Godsell is for the tug Svitzer Stanlow. Such vessels are always popular model making subjects.

The MYA have two reports in Compass 360 and Glynn Guest has prepared an interesting piece on how different models perform and why, so hopefully there is something for every reader to enjoy in this issue.
