For every five model boats constructed, four are of scale subjects. In this book, John Cundell, editor of Model Boats magazine, describes how to choose a model type, what scale to build in, where to obtain plans, kit availability, hull construction methods, materials and adhesives, propulsion, radio control and a variety of other useful information and advice. This is the book to guide the beginner through the boatyard maze! Chapters: Introduction 1. So you want to build an R/C scale model boat? -Ambition;Size of model; Getting in touch (with your local club); Books; Power Source; Radio Installation 2. Types of Model. Which one should you choose to build? Do you want to build a ship that carries something or a ship that does something? You can split both these main headings (ships that carry vs ships that do) into ships that are merchant and ships which are naval. Naval ships are popular subjects and the bigger you build the better with these; whilst tug boats are popular because they provide detailed but strong models at easily transportable sizes. -e.g. passenger liners, cargo liners, tramp steamers, colliers, tankers, container ships, ferries, pleasure craft, fishing vessels, river craft, oil support ships, rotor ships, motor barges, sailing ships, sailing barges, warships, battleships, aircraft carriers and so on. 3.
