Albatros Productions see out 2016 with the winter issue of Windsock. As usual there’s plenty of reading to keep early aviation enthusiasts busy as the nights draw in. The conclusion of Harry Woodman’s update of his classic Modelling Vintage Aircraft In Plastic Card examines painting techniques and also brings back many happy memories for me as Harry recalls his introduction of photo-etching to the wider modelling world via the pages of Scale Models in the early 1970s. There are research articles, including colour features on the Pfalz D.III and Sopwith Camel, while Lance Krieg goes to town on Roden’s Nieuport 28. Wrapping everything up, Kitbag examines many of the latest kits and accessories, with a selection ranging from 1:720 Zeppelins right up to the SPAD XIII in 1:24.
OUR WINTER ISSUE!
The Winter edition of Windsock concludes Harry Woodman 's popular scratch-building series with nine packed pages covering ﬁnishing; airbrushing; weathering; markings; white metal and photo-etch detailing: sketches, model and archive photos predominate to provide a ﬁtting ﬁnale to the late master -modeller's exemplary contributions to our hobby. Greg Van Wyngarden retums to the evolving colours of Pfalz D.III 1370/ 17 which was one of the lead features in our very ﬁrst Windsock published in 1985 - rare photos and Ronny Bar artwork add gravitas to this new take on an old favourite. Elsewhere, Lance Krieg models a very special Nieuport 28; David Byers describes the American WWI soft shell ﬂying helmets and we have the third and ﬁnal part of the Sopwith Carnel Warpaint series with another great centre-spread of colour proﬁles. There's a report on WWI aeroplane models at the recent IPMS nationals in the USA; an extended book review section; more fabulous readers’ models; new ﬁgures and accessories; plus a Kitbag which takes a look at CSM's Sopwith Dolphin, another Mirage Halberstadt, the Merit Spad XIII and some great small scale Zeppelins from Mach 1 Models. All this and more in a packed issue of quality material that regular readers have come to expect from over 30 years of Windsock publication.
