Model Art Modeling Magazine is a Japanese publication that is released monthly. The text is mainly in Japanese with some English subtitles throughout. One attractive feature about these magazines is the high quality of the photographs and the models that are used.

The March issue of Model Art Magazine is slightly different from their normal monthly issues. This issue consists of new kit reviews. They review a little bit of every type of kit to encompass all modelers. For instance, they review the Italeri 1/72nd scale Sunderland Mk. I and the Trumpeter 1/48th scale A3D Skywarrior as an example of some of the aircraft that were reviewed. For the AFV folks, there is a review of the Meng 1/35th scale A39 Tortoise and the Cyber Hobby 1/35th Super Heavy Tank out of the 4 AFV kits that were reviewed in this issue. For the ship folks, there are two reviews, and one review for the car guys - a Vodafone McLaren Mercedes MP4-27.

As with the other issues of Model Art Magazine, you will find two feature articles. One is "Modeling JASDF", which continues with the build of the T-28. The other article is "Neo Historic Garage", where this month they build the Aoshima Skyline 2000GT-E/S Golden Car '80.

Even though the majority of the text is in Japanese, I still find this magazine a wealth of modeling information due to the great photography.

I would like to thank Model Art Magazine and IPMS/USA for the opportunity to review this product.
