I am a big fan of their products, so I looked forward to reviewing this book. It is a softcover publication of 24 pages, 6 of which are in color. The cover is a heavy card stock with a color top view of a Russian P-39Q. There are also color side and bottom views of the same aircraft in the book.</p> <p>The text in the book is limited to photo captions. There are 36 black and white pictures along with 10 color pictures. The pictures are of a good size and of good quality throughout. There is a mixture of walkaround style photos from restored aircraft and wartime photos of U.S. aircraft in the Pacific theater. A couple of the photos are of P-39s undergoing maintenance and show several areas of the aircraft exposed.</p><p><a href="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/single-no-01-belll-p-39q-airacobra" target="_blank">read more</a></p> https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/single-no-01-belll-p-39q-airacobra#comments Aircraft Publications Tue, 20 Aug 2019 00:03:52 +0000 David Wrinkle 8487 at https://web.ipmsusa3.org Clouded Leopard ROC TIFV CM-32/33 https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/clouded-leopard-roc-tifv-cm-3233 <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-region-pr-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/clouded-leopard-roc-tifv-cm-3233" class="imagecache imagecache-review_cover_square imagecache-linked imagecache-review_cover_square_linked"><img src="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/sites/default/files/imagecache/review_cover_square/reviews/clouded-leopard-roc-tifv-cm-3233/afv35320_28378_rd.jpg" alt="Product Image" title="Box Art " width="150" height="150" class="imagecache imagecache-review_cover_square"/></a> </div> </div> </div> <p>When I was asked to review this kit, I have to admit to feeling a bit daunted. I have only done a handful of modern armor pieces, and even those were really restricted to IDF tanks and vehicles. There's not a whole lot of information out there on this specific vehicle either--a cursory Google search brings up primarily pictures of the actual animal known as the Clouded Leopard.</p> <p>So to quote the introduction from the instruction sheet, after having used second-hand armored half-tracks and Vietnam War-weary V-150s, the Republic of China (ROC: Taiwan) engineers were urged by the US to receive training on designing their own wheeled IFVs. In 1992 as a result of this, the prototype six-wheeled CM31 was born. In the course of this, however, it was soon realized that eight-wheeled IFVs were the new norm. So using the CM31 as a base, development of a more versatile eight-wheeled IFV began in 2001. In 2005, the new design- the CM32, was finalized and given the name "Clouded Leopard". Production began in 2007 and featured an automatic 40mm grenade launcher and coaxial 7.62mm machine gun. Various versions have been created and production of the CM32/33 totaled 368 units.</p><p><a href="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/clouded-leopard-roc-tifv-cm-3233" target="_blank">read more</a></p> https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/clouded-leopard-roc-tifv-cm-3233#comments Military Vehicles Kits Mon, 19 Aug 2019 23:55:43 +0000 David Wrinkle 8486 at https://web.ipmsusa3.org Hawker Hurricane I https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/hawker-hurricane-i <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-region-pr-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/hawker-hurricane-i" class="imagecache imagecache-review_cover_square imagecache-linked imagecache-review_cover_square_linked"><img src="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/sites/default/files/imagecache/review_cover_square/reviews/hawker-hurricane-i/mmp_single_03_hawker_hurricane_i_cover_front.jpg" alt="Product Image" title="Cover" width="150" height="150" class="imagecache imagecache-review_cover_square"/></a> </div> </div> </div> <p>This tome is the third in this new series, Single. This series format consists of a 4-view colour profile, scale plans, and photo details of a single variant; in this case the Hawker Hurricane I. You won't find an introduction or background summary, as this series dives straight into the drawings, illustrations, and photographs. MMP was founded in 1996 by Roger Wallsgrove, to publish "Mushroom Model Magazine". This quarterly modelling magazine was developed from "Mushroom Monthly", a club newsletter which ran from 1985 to 1995, achieving a world-wide reputation for quality articles, fearless and honest reviews, and a great sense of humor. From 1997 the magazine was produced in collaboration with Robert Peczkowski and Artur Juszczak (Stratus), which meant a big leap in print quality and design. MMP expanded into book publication in 1999, and since then they have built up a list of books on aircraft and aviation, naval, military vehicles, and military history. MMPBooks are distributed in North America by Casemate Publications.</p><p><a href="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/hawker-hurricane-i" target="_blank">read more</a></p> https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/hawker-hurricane-i#comments Aircraft Publications Mon, 19 Aug 2019 10:52:24 +0000 Doug Cole 8485 at https://web.ipmsusa3.org Meteor Pitot https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/meteor-pitot <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-region-pr-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/meteor-pitot" class="imagecache imagecache-review_cover_square imagecache-linked imagecache-review_cover_square_linked"><img src="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/sites/default/files/imagecache/review_cover_square/reviews/master-model-1144-meteor-pitot/1_meteor_144_package.jpg" alt="Product Image" title="Packaging" width="150" height="150" class="imagecache imagecache-review_cover_square"/></a> </div> </div> </div> <p>Master Model of Poland produces small brass parts for detailing models, be they aircraft or ships.

The instructions are quite simple.</p> <ol> <li>Drill a hole for the brass part.</li> <li>Install the brass part, using CA glue.</li> <li>Paint the part.</li> </ol> <p>I had a HKM Meteor already built, and the kit comes without a pitot. So I added it.</p> <p>One of the great things about the instructions is the drawing for the placement of the pitot. The drawing is 1/144 scale, and makes figuring out where to drill the hole much easier.</p> <p>Once I got the drill started and the hole drilled, I got the part out of the package.</p><p><a href="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/meteor-pitot" target="_blank">read more</a></p> https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/meteor-pitot#comments Aircraft Details Mon, 19 Aug 2019 10:41:31 +0000 Doug Cole 8484 at https://web.ipmsusa3.org Hughes H-1B Short Wing Racer https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/hughes-h-1b-short-wing-racer <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-region-pr-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/hughes-h-1b-short-wing-racer" class="imagecache imagecache-review_cover_square imagecache-linked imagecache-review_cover_square_linked"><img src="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/sites/default/files/imagecache/review_cover_square/reviews/hughes-h-1b-short-wing-racer/cmkplt165_l.jpg" alt="Product Image" title="Cover Art" width="150" height="150" class="imagecache imagecache-review_cover_square"/></a> </div> </div> </div> <p>I've always been a fan of the iconic silver and blue Hughes H-1 Racer. I was familiar with the long wing variant, but as it turns out, two sets of wings were made for this one of a kind beauty - long wings for endurance flights, and short wings for speed records. You'll have to decide for yourself which one appeals to you, but no worries - Special Hobby/Planet Models provide both in 1/48 resin.</p> <p>The kit itself is fairly simple and straightforward - resin one-piece wings, fuselage halves and cockpit, engine "cob" and many, many cylinders, etc. Two vacuum-formed canopy blanks are included, good for those of us who need a spare. (Although I lucked out this time). The kit includes decals and a simple but thorough exploded view of the assembly sequence.</p><p><a href="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/hughes-h-1b-short-wing-racer" target="_blank">read more</a></p> https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/hughes-h-1b-short-wing-racer#comments Aircraft Kits Sat, 17 Aug 2019 11:10:49 +0000 Doug Cole 8483 at https://web.ipmsusa3.org Detail & Scale Jet Fighters of the U.
