Aviattic have produced a set of three resin 54mm figures of the United States Air Service :1918.

The figures are great - not just nice detail, but bags of character too. Apleasure to paint, they look good as single studies, or as a group and are ideal embelishments for suitable aircraft models.

At 29.50 for the set, they are a bargain, and you get wheel chock, packing case, bucket, tool box and tools thrown in!

> Trumpeter 1:24 bf109G-10

Remember, I DO NOT BUILD GERMAN AIRCRAFT!


The Beginnings...

The kiit



Out of the box this kit is impressive. Some good detail in the parts and the etched lines and details are not canyons or sinkholes.

First thing is though, I am finding I just cannot stand molded in surface detail on the interior surfaces. So that just had to go away.





With that out of the way the voices began to scream at me. So I rough cut some interior bulkheads.



And the rest...well....it still is all together.




I did draw a bit on the fuse sides. Just in thought.


I warn you, if you like Trumpeter kits, this may not be a pleasant build for you to watch. The voices are guiding me and they want me to be brutal.




All comments, critiques, and criticism are greatly encouraged.

I regret to report that IPMS (UK) has received information that suggests a person or persons unknown are contacting traders and offering to 'assist' them in finding accommodation at Scale ModelWorld this year.

IPMS (UK) would like to state quite categorically that we have no previous knowledge of this activity and have at no stage authorised anyone to contact anyone involved in the show and offer them such assistance.

I would stress that they seem to be targeting traders (presumably because we publish lists of who is attending), but it would pay all IPMS Members and potential visitors to the show to be on their guard. To reiterate - IPMS (UK) has never actively 'cold called' anyone to offer accommodation booking assistance and has no intention of doing so.

Could I ask anyone who sees this message and frequents the major modelling forums (and any of the foreign forums of our Overseas friends) to please publish the above text as widely as possible?

On a more positive note, if we are being targeted like this, then it says a lot about the high status of the event!

Regards,
John Tapsell
