There’s a real treat for modellers in the November issue of Airfix Model World, with THREE exclusive builds of new Airfix kits.
Leading the feast is the newly tooled 1/48 Blenheim (as previewed in the leading photo), and Chris Jones finds there’s plenty of detail to savour. Hot on its heels is the two-seat 1/72 Me 262B-1a/U1 night fighter (which can also be built as the basic trainer variant), followed by Andy Davies’ build of the eagerly awaited 1/72 Phantom FGR.2, to which he adds a night attack weapons fit. The latter is accompanied by Air Defence and Ground Attack articles, written by ex-RAF aircrew, and a magnificent cutaway drawing of the type on the centre pages.
But that’s not all, for sci-fi fans there’s a full-length build feature on Revell’s re-released 1/14 Landspeeder, while John Paulding (of MAFVA) shows how to convert Italeri’s 1/35 M925 truck into a Vietnam War Gun Truck. Larger-scale fans aren’t left out, as Wingnut Wings’ gorgeous 1/32 Jeannin Stahltaube receives attention from Steve Budd, and Eduard’s Harrier GR.7/9 is built as a Strike Attack Operational Evaluation Unit airframe by Richard Spreckley. Last, but by no means least, Jamie Haggo takes inspiration from Eduard’s MiG-21s with his camouflaged Revell 1/24 Trabant.
With 24 extra pages, November’s AMW is great value, packed with builds, news, show reports and reviews of all your favourite subjects.
