Keith Julier RIP
« on: June 15, 2015, 03:51:51 PM »

Paul Freshney, Editor of Model Boats has just been informed of the death of Keith Julier who passed away at the end of May.

Regular readers will remember Keith's reviews of period ship kits and also the numerous articles he contributed on scratchbuilding this type of model. He was also author of books on building techniques and constructing kits. In recent years his health precluded continuing with his regular reviews and articles which will be very much missed by those building period ship models whether in scratch built or kit form.

Hmm, DW and I were wondering what had become of Keith only a few weeks ago. A lot of expertise gone there but, at least, his articles remain; ex RAF I believe.

I still have, in my useful items folder, the 36 'Period Pieces' articles he wrote for Model Boats between 2008-2010. Absolutely brilliant.

Very sad. I read many of his articles in the days before launching myself into period ship modelling. He helped me along very nicely.
