This issue includes a complimentary new full-size Free Plan for Nixie, a freelance semi-scale dynamic diving radio controlled submarine. The prototype has been designed and built by Glynn Guest and as the photos demonstrate, the submarine works, and really works well, even though being only 25.5 inches long and made primarily from balsawood. Gordon Longworth returns to these pages with his radio controlled swan, all built and based on an inexpensive pond decoy bought online. Harry Hitchenes has also successfully converted the Airfix HMB Endeavour kit to radio control, no easy task bearing in mind the small scale of this plastic kit and Dave Wooley has a Photo Feature from the 2017 Mersey River Festival, an event that always has substantial support from the Liverpool area model boating fraternity. Jon Godsell has supplied a unique Photo Gallery for Goliath, a most unusual self-propelled dredger which would, with further research, make for an eye-catching and very interesting radio controlled model with all its numerous working features. We also have all the usual regular columns, including Range Finder, Flotsam & Jetsam, Boiler Room and Waterline Models, so I hope there is something here for all our readers as we now move into the Autumn of 2017.
