A reliable reference source is needed for those interested in any form
of aviation. Windsock Worldwide provides such a knowledge base for
modelers of World War One aircraft.
This is the 4th in a total of 6 issues for this year and contains the
usual variety of subject matter.
George Haddow’s guide to Austro-Hungarian aircraft continues with a look
at the Hansa-Brandenburg Type CC. Not only is there a selection of black
and white photographs of the machine but also a set of general
arrangement drawings. These are in both 1:72 and 1:48 scale.
Bob Pearson accompanies the article with a lovely set of six colour
Speaking of which, he also provides artwork for the Russian Lebed XII.
This two-seater forms “Part 1” of an excellent contribution from Harry
Woodman. Rare period images are included as well as a plans feature from
the indefatigable Martin Digmayer. Once again these are represented in
the two most popular scales.
Roden are leading the way in large scale WWI aircraft and their latest
release gets the “build treatment” from the editor. The Pfalz D.III is
constructed with the aid of colour photographs and step-by-step text
that describes the processes used in its construction.
Ronny Bar gives two alternate colour schemes for this kit thanks to some
very accomplished artwork.
Colour photographs of Koloman Mayrhofer’s Oeffag D.III reproduction
prove that one man’s dedication can pay off. The two page spread is only
the beginning with more revealing images to follow in future editions.
Normally a comprehensive roundup of kit reviews is included but it seems
that lack of space has curtailed this section for the moment. Thankfully
the book appraisals have remained and these keep the reader informed of
new ways to part with their hard earned cash.
Once again, a diverse range of material is presented to
The contributors are experts in their field and the
layout of material is ideal for the A4 sized format.
With 32 pages contained within the covers, this magazine provides a
valuable source of information for the World War One aviation modeler.
