The November issue’s third exclusive build is of Airfix’s re-worked Me 262B-1a/U1 night fighter, which combines the single-seater’s wings, engines and undercarriage with an all-new two-seat fuselage and canopy.
Alan Price delves into how to get the best from the basic styrene, highlighting any issues with construction in his 6-page article. Accompanying this World War Two subject is Airfix’s newly tooled 1/48 Blenheim, along with its 1/72 Phantom FGR.2.
Modellers seeking extra information on these subjects will find the accompanying history/in-focus sections useful, written by a combination of aviation historians and ex-aircrew, and as an extra bonus, there’s a cutaway diagram of the Phantom by renowned aviation expert Mike Badrocke.
Sci-fi fans are treated to a build of Revell’s re-released 1/14 Landspeeder, and there’s a conversion of Italeri’s M925 truck into a notional Vietnam War transportation unit gun truck, which is absolutely dripping with weaponry and ammunition! Large-scale fans aren’t left out, as Wingnut Wings’ gorgeous 1/32 Jeannin Stahltaube opens the issue, while Eduard’s Harrier GR.7/9 is built as a Strike Attack Operational Evaluation Unit airframe. Revell’s 1/24 Trabant 601 completes this packed issue, with inspiration for the build coming from Eduard’s Bunny Fighter Club artwork.
