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 magnificent build of Airfix new Gloster Javelin Mk 9 and also a 1/48 Academy BAe T-59 Hawk. The Airfix Javelin build by Mike Williams covers the construction and painting in detail with excellent shots of the cockpit and all internal detail. He finishes with an excellent paint scheme and the kit looks fantastic.

The other Feature article from Brian Wakeman covers building the Academy BAe Hawk in Korean trainer markings. The Korean trainer version requires adding a replacement nose. Detail is provided on this and upgrading the cockpit and also an excellent painting and weathering guide. This finished shots look awesome.

The Aviation in Profile article covers the a select history of the de Havilland Vampire. The article has many shots of operational Vampires and to compliment this, Chris Fleet builds Airfix 1/72 Vampire T.11 in silver and yellow.

As is the case in each issue of SAM, there are a number of Compact Build Reviews.

  • Great Wall Hobby 1/48 Mig-29A by Vyacheslav Demchenko in a weathered scheme
  • The 1/12 Spitfire by Laverty begins to take shape
  • Hasegawa's 1/48 Arado 234 Special by Nino Gakovic
  • Rob Ludlow builds HobbyBoss 1/48th FW190D-9
  • Modelsvit 1/72nd Su-7 by Seb Videc
  • HobbyBoss 1/72 Chinese Z-10 by Nigel Poole

In addition, there are numerous notes, new kit announcements and other modeling related items. There is great detail on Airfix's announcement of their 1/24th scale Typhoon. As always, SAM is highly recommended for its content and excellent reference information.

Thanks to Scale Aircraft Modelling and IPMS/USA for the opportunity to review the December issue.
