    Hi All,

    Some nice articles in this issue:

    Good coverage of Nigel E at the Alfold show. Description of his models and a nice photo of the H.L Hunley (Shouldn't that be CSS??)

    Good article on Alvaston Pirates MBC regatta. (Tim's club, I think.) With a good photo of John R's new sub "the 6' long Gato. (That must be a tiddler for John!)

    (While I am on about magazines, I happened to see a back issue in the Barrow Club House with an article about a new dynamic diving porpoise done jointly by Norbert Bruggen and another German Modeller. Sorry I didn't jot down the reference but it was in MMI about August 2015, I think.)
