Company: Scale Aircraft Modelling
The June issue contains two Feature articles. Feature 1 is entitled, “Arthurian Legend” and is nine pages of images coupled with an excellent description of how Chris Fleet built his Airfix Agusta Westland Merlin HC3. Interestingly, Chris shares his use of copper wire to simulate detail within the model. Two pages of full-color images of a real Merlin add to the trove of detailed information that one can use when building this Airfix kit.
Feature 2, by Neil Pinchbeck, covers the Revell Supermarine Stranraer in 1/72nd scale. Neil’s article covers how he dealt with the rigging (oh, those hated double stands!), cutting the canopy open, and adding rivet detail. Neil’s work is outstanding, both on the model itself and then within his article.
The Aviation in Profile article is by Brian Wakeman, and it features the Kinetic BAe Hawk 100 kit in 1/32nd scale. In keeping with the Canada Day theme set by Editor Jay Laverty, Brian’s Hawk is in Canadian markings and is truly a work of art. Brian’s review of the Kinetic kit provides a solid foundation upon which modelers can build their own Hawks.
