The latest Datafile from Albatros Productions serves as a timely reminder of just what an attractive modelling subjects the Nieuport Nighthawk, Nightjar and Sparrowhawk family make. With only 1:72 versions available (as far as I know), the market's wide open for larger scale kits, and Colin Owers' informative text is accompanied by a plethora of period photos, specially produced plans, plus spectacular Ronny Bar artwork to inspire more models of this oft-overlooked fighter. It might be too much to expect a WNW 1:32 mainstream kit, but maybe Silver Wings?...
Albatros Productions' latest issue of Windsock Worldwide has plenty to keep us busy as the autumn nights begin to draw in here in the UK with a rich selection of modelling and reference articles. Lance Krieg tackles exterior finishes, including wood effects, while the spectacular colour spread of the SE5 in US service will have many modellers itching to tackle one. Among an extensive look at new kits and accessories, this edition gives a tantalising preview of Hasegawa's beautiful new 1:16 Sopwith Camel. It looks a real beauty - but I can't help wishing they'd chosen to fill the glaring gap in the market for a new 1:32 version...
