Well, there goes another month in the blink of an eye; it’s easily done this time of year as the model boating calendar is pretty well crammed. Very similar to this month’s 84-pager which gives the impression of being much bigger than it is, thanks to no-less than 14 quality articles on a wide range of model boat-related subjects. As well as the regular Boiler Room, Flotsam & Jetsam, Gallery, Reader’s Models and Dave Wooley’s OSA2 (which is now drawing to a close) we have another informative feature about square-riggers, a couple of Norfolk Wherries get in on the act, show reports from Dortmund, Bournville, 10-Rater and Marblehead Championships and the Kirklees Open Day. The final part of Roger Suitter’s NR-1 submarine has arrived not to mention a superb diorama and story of Operation Jaywick thanks to one of our favourite old Military Modelling contributors, Geoff Barnes who you will be seeing a lot more of. On top of all that, we have re-issued an old Glynn Guest plan in support of Steve Whitelock’s lovely Talisman build, so I’m hoping, there is a little something for everyone. I hope you enjoy this issue of the magazine which features a plan from days gone by which many of you will already have in your Model Boat archive. I’m not going to make a habit of re-publishing old plans but, as it was 32 years ago when it first came out, I thought it could do with another airing.
