This is a high quality magazine filled with high quality photos of extremely well done models. I have never found an issue of this magazine to disappoint and this issue is certainly no different in that regard!

This issue has seven feature articles, with something for any aircraft modeler regardless of era or scale built. In the first article, we get to look at a gorgeous build of the HpH 1/32 L-29 Delphin. HpH kits are resin kits of extremely high quality and the asking price for them may have made some people hold off until you see what is in the box. Fear not, as the casting is flawless and the detail is magnificent! Next comes converting a 1/48 Tamiya Me-262 to a Me-262A1a/U3. The third article is the cover feature, a 1/48 Airfix Seafire 47. The added detail and workmanship here are sure to inspire. Article four is a very well-detailed 1/48 AM SBD. All of the added detail and realistic finish really make this model pop! Article five covers the PCM 1/32 Hurricane Mk. I. Article six covers a wide range of new releases in all scales. This issue winds up with a very nice build of the Montex 1/32 D510, another high quality resin kit.

If you are an aircraft modeler, you cannot help but love this magazine. The quality of the work featured is equaled only by the quality of the publication itself! I recommend this to all aircraft modelers, you will enjoy it!

Our thanks to Air Modeller for the review copy and to IPMS/USA for the opportunity to review it.
