This copy of Windsock Worldwide is typical of every other issue I have had in my hand. I have read every word and learned something new and hated that there wasn't any more. Including the covers, there's 36 pages of high quality, heavy, glossy pages packed with information. Unlike most U.S. hobby publications, which are half advertisements and half articles, there are only two pages of ads in this magazine.

The main article is a build/review of Wingnut Wings' new Pfalz D.XII in 1/32nd scale. There are thirty-one pictures of the model and its components during the construction process and an additional seven photos of an actual Pfalz D.XII. The rear cover includes photos of two pieces of original covering.

The article takes you step-by-step through the build with lots of suggestions. Since I am building this kit for an IPMS review, the magazine came in handy.

Also included is a complete build article of Special Hobby's 1/48th scale Fokker D.V.

I highly recommend Windsock Worldwide to all World War I modeling enthusiast. Individual issues and subscriptions are available through Albatros Productions, as well as ROLL Models.

My thanks to Albatros Productions for the sample and IPMS/USA for the opportunity to review it.
