Get ready for a serious eye test – the latest issue of Airfix Model World (on sale August 2) includes Juanjo Dominguez’s amazing feature on Flyhawk’s M1A2 Abrams main battle tank, which offers a wealth of scratch-built extras, all of which is made all the more spectacular when its realised this is just 1/72 scale!

September’s bumper 136-page issue packs in eight full-length build features, including a test-shot of Revell’s newly tooled 1/48 Beaufighter TF.X, plus a bonus four-page 1/72 scale Ventura plans pull-out, accompanied by a history of the type’s service in the Royal Canadian Air Force and a build of Revell’s 1/48 Ventura. There’s also an out-of-this-world real-space feature on Fantastic Plastic’s 1/48 Manned Orbiting Laboratory, which includes David Baker’s fascinating background article.
