    The Wipers Times

    ‘Having managed to pick up a printing outfit (slightly soiled) at a reasonable price, we have decided to produce a paper. There is much that we would like to say in it, but the shadow of censorship enveloping us causes us to refer to the war, which we hear is taking place in Europe, in a cautious manner.’

    Shipwright Annual – News Update

    Conway Publishing announces that there will not be a Shipwright annual for 2014. We are extremely proud to have published Shipwright in journal and annual form since September 1972 and to have worked with such an incredibly talented, diverse and extensive range of contributors and modelers from across the globe.


    In doing so we have produced the world’s finest resource of articles, references, reports, illustrations and ship plans both for active and aspirational scratch-built ship modelers as well as for naval and maritime historians.

    Over those 40+ years both the ship-modeling and publishing worlds have changed beyond recognition and Shipwright has sought to reflect these changes. The time has now come for Conway to take a close look at the current set of market pressures and opportunities and to plot the future course for Shipwright.

    We have today also announced that after the publication of Shipwright 2013 John Bowen announced his decision to step down from the role as Editor, a role that he took up 40 years ago in 1974 having previously been Assistant Editor for the first two years of the Shipwright journal.

    John Bowen’s name is synonymous with Shipwright and with the very highest standards of specialist publishing and superlative ship-modeling that it embodies. We very much hope that after a break in 2014 we can carry the publication into the future and continue the wonderful example that John has set for us.

    Shipwright could only happen because of the most incredible support and commitment from its readers and subscribers, many of whom have bought every issue. All at Conway Publishing would like to thank you all most graciously for this amazing loyalty and very much hope to ensure that you have the opportunity to extend it further.
