Having 'gone digital' over the last several years, I have severely curtailed my physical magazine subscriptions. As a result, this title was entirely new to me and thus was very keen to review it and have a chance to read through another publication.

Despite the above commentary, Scale Military Modeller International has been around for a while. The quality of the magazine is like many others from the publisher - Nice, glossy stiff covers and equally glossy, but thinner, content pages. Excellent quality photos and detailed articles are consistent throughout this issue.

Contents of Issue #585 include at least 9 build articles (8 military vehicles ranging from WW2 to present-day, and 1 Schnellboot ). Several pages of new product descriptions (covering armor and figures) fill out more of the magazine. Two articles cover historical background of different subjects, accompanied by build articles of the same. There are also some brief pieces on new tools available.

Although I am primarily an aircraft modeler, I found several of the articles to be of great help to me. I always find articles describing painting techniques to be useful, and there were several of that nature in here. One of the builds also included a small base, and the suggestions for groundwork on the base can prove of use to builders of almost any subject. Definitely a magazine produced to high standards, and worth having a look into if you like the subject matter

Thanks to SAM Publications for providing the review sample and to IPMS/USA for allowing me to review it.
