The leading WW1 and early aviation modelling magazine returns with its latest bi-monthly issue packed with interesting articles. Highlights in this issue include a detailed investigation into the fascinating conundrum over wing sweep - or lack of it - on the Hannover Cl. II and III, plenty of inspiration for modellers with Sopwith Pup colour profiles and more detailed hints and tips from Lance Krieg, and 1:72 plans of the extraordinary Armstrong Whitworth FK.12 "Zeppelin killer".
But, above all, this issue is inevitably tinged with sadness in its fine tribute to the late, great, Harry Woodman. Harry's amazing ground-breaking work with plastic card and photo-etched details was undoubtedly among the greatest influences for me as a young modeller in the early 1970s, taking the art to a level I can still only aspire to some 40 years later.
WINDSOCK Worldwide Vol. 29, No. 1
"This issue carries the wide variety of high-class WWI modelling and reference topics that sets WINDSOCK Worldwide apart from the pack. Lance Krieg continues his WWI Modelling Master Class with more invaluable advice on adding and creating the small details that really enhance any model, whilst for scratchbuilders, there’s a Rara Avis plans feature on the extraordinary FK12 anti-Zeppelin fighter triplane. There’s an exclusive centre-spread of Sopwith Triplane profiles for builders of recent Roden and Wingnut kits; an extended Transfer List’ to include most recent releases, and we offer a fond tribute to the late, great Harry Woodman, whose contributions to WWI modelling and aviation research have inspired so many of us. There are reviews of recent kits, and accessories, including the Alley Cat Bristol Ml, and WNW Hannover, plus we take a detailed look at the Hawa’s wing design with plenty of archive source materiaL AH the other usual columns feature to make this another stand-out edition.
