Today marks a remarkable milestone from Mark Davies - his 500th review on HyperScale. I'd like to thank Mark for all that hard work from his first HyperScale review in 2008 until today. I hope that we will see another 500 of Mark's thorough and forthright reviews on HyperScale over the coming years!

I am pleased to announce the next book in ADH Publishing's "How To Build" series, Airfix 1:24 Hawker Typhoon Mk.IB, featuring work by myself, Marcus Nicholls and Chris Wauchop. A few photos showing progress on this large and impressive model plus a cover mockup are included on the Preview page. This book will be available around the end of June and may be pre-ordered right now.

  • While we're talking about big Tiffies, Steve Budd presents three images of his Airfix 1/24 scale Hawker Typhoon Mk.IB, built from an early test shot.

  • Mark Davies reviews three sets of LPS Hobby's 1/72 scale P-51B & D Mustang Decal Sets. Images of the covers, the instructions and each of the decal sheets are included.

  • On Missing-Lynx, I review Tamiya's 1/35 scale British Paratrooper & Bicycles Set. Eight images of the plastic parts, box top and painting instructions are included.

  • Dennis Oliver advises that the latest Oliver Publishing title, STUG: Assault Gun Units In The East, Bagration to Berlin, Volume II, is complete. This book is based on the usual format of 13 full colour pages featuring over 30 different vehicles, highlighting the colours and field modifications that make these late-war assault guns so interesting. Add to that organisational charts and unit histories and this book finishes what Volume I began. Copies of the book will be available in the first weeks of May and may be ordered direct from ADH Publishing

  • Tonight I'll be heading off to Beijing for the 2014 Hobby Expo China, where I will be attending the Meng Model stand along with Adam Wilder, David Parker and Kristof Pulinckx. I'll be reporting back from the show with news and images of new and forthcoming releases. Stay tuned!
