Has the new editor, Lindsey Amrani, any Model Boat experience? A female editor................hmmm that is a first. I wish her well.

I wish we were paying those prices now LOL.


I did my bit of recycling in lock down, as there was no MB I read a lot of my old mags from 15 years ago.

This is excellent news, I have been reading MB since the early 1970's, and am a long-time subscriber.

MTM (MyTime Media) publishes a range of specialist craft and hobby magazines, (or in corporate-speak 'best-loved hobby brands'), so self-evidently if the mags are not published
then they don't have a business. However as the lockdown dragged on and on, with no news about MB, and with another of their model mags (RCM&E) which I read, still being published,
I was almost fearing the worst. I thought that perhaps the bean-counters at MTM Towers might be rationalizing their product range, but I am now looking forward to my next subscription
copy at the end of the month, so good luck and best wishes to Lindsey, Beth, and Colin.

Incidentally, during the lockdown I have noticed an uptick in craft and modelling activities, I don't think it's a co-incidence that the TV smash hits of the past 3 months have been feelgood
craft series on the Beeb, 'The Great British Sewing Bee' and 'the Repair Shop'.


Cheers,

Mike

Hi, I confess I loved the GB sewing Bee, it was very well presented and was pleased to see my choice in first episode come through to the final and win.

I scan through the Repair Shop after recording it to see what I fancy.  Does anyone know in which episode the model yacht was repaired?  I thought I saw it in the opening titles but I looked through 20 episodes and could not find it.
Sorry to go off thread but I have found my Virgin TiVo box records things without me asking.  Programmes I never watch even.  Do I not fit into someone elses algorithm?  A couple of days ago I pruned out 20 % of what was recorded.

Hi Jaymac I watched the one with the 1900's Bing steam boat, would like to have seen more of what he did though. 
The sudden fix of the piston and cylinder was glossed over.  I was amazed as to how fast the boat went on the pond.  Having seen a few like it that just limp along.

Thanks for looking, must have dreamt it!

No Roycv


You didnít imagine it other wise I did too!
It was a Star Yacht pond model but he didnít understand that the rigging system employed by Star Yachts- he ended up making a working system that pulled up the sails instead of having the masts fold able.
