Company: Scale Aircraft Modelling
Each issue of Scale Aircraft Modeling follows a basic design and format. There are usually two Feature Articles, an Aviation in Profile piece, industry news and a series of Compact Build Reviews.
The Feature articles for this issue covers a build of 1/72 Revell Tornado IDS build in Tigermeet markings and a 1/32 Special Hobby Fiat G.50. The Tornado build is by Pierre Baldru and covers the construction and painting of this colorful kit. He modifies the kit with Aires Wheel Wells, Master pitot tube, Verlinden seats and Eduard RBF tags. The kit is then finished with a remarkable German Tigermeet scheme with the entire plane striped. It looks fantastic
The other Feature article from James Ashton and covers building the 1/32 Special Hobby Fiat G.50. No aftermarket is used and concentration is put on the mottled camouflage screen and perfect subtle weathering using oils.
The Aviation in Profile article covers one of my favorite planes, The F-15. There is a great history of Israeli use and purchase of the F-15 by Yoav Efrati and Jay Laverty. The detail shots are from and F-15i Ra'am and the color schemes cover Israeli, JASDF and American Eagles.
