The leading WW1 and early aviation modelling magazine returns with its latest bi-monthly issue packed with interesting articles. Highlights in this issue include a detailed investigation into the fascinating conundrum over wing sweep - or lack of it - on the Hannover Cl. II and III, plenty of inspiration for modellers with Sopwith Pup colour profiles and more detailed hints and tips from Lance Krieg, and 1:72 plans of the extraordinary Armstrong Whitworth FK.12 "Zeppelin killer".
But, above all, this issue is inevitably tinged with sadness in its fine tribute to the late, great, Harry Woodman. Harry's amazing ground-breaking work with plastic card and photo-etched details was undoubtedly among the greatest influences for me as a young modeller in the early 1970s, taking the art to a level I can still only aspire to some 40 years later.
