This issue includes a Full-Size Complimentary Free Plan worth £12.50 for Hagbart Waage, an ex-lifeboat now used as a leisure craft. The plan has been drawn by James Pottinger and makes for an unusual and interesting model project. In addition, we have another new plan, available direct from MyHobbyStore, for Invictus of Allington, a canal barge model designed by Ray Wood, together with a step by step construction guide. Tim Henderson returns with his now finally completed 1:200 scale QE2 model, the windows having been added together with a new cyclonic oil separator for the steam plant, which enables the exhaust to exit from the funnel without soiling the decks. Ron Dean, of Deans Marine, went to Intermodellbau in Dortmund, Germany, in April of this year. Arguably this is the biggest and best multi-disciplinary hobby show in Europe with massive input from all forms of model making and the supporting trade. The marine side is very well supported with numerous trade stands and club displays, and our Pages 38 & 39 Gallery this month give a flavour of what there was at the show in 2016 and what to expect in future years. In Flotsam and Jetsam, John Parker looks back at the Veron range of kits which were extremely popular some decades ago. These kits are now reappearing in the market place, albeit under other trade names, but continuing the tradition of easy to build and practical wooden r/c model boats . We of course also have all the usual regular articles such as Range Finder, BMPRS News and Boiler Room, together with an interesting Reader's Model, so I hope there is something here for everyone in these pages.Paul Freshney - Editor
