MONSTER MOTOR

Airfix's latest release in its Vintage Classics range is truly deserving of the accolade, both in terms of kit heritage and the subject itself: a 1930 Bentley 4.5 Litre Supercharged – which is perhaps better known as the Blower Bentley.

ROTOL SPITFIRE

Having delighted modellers with its newly tooled 1/48 Spitfire Mk.Ia, Eduard has now turned its attention to the Rotol propeller-fitted Mk.IIa variant.

ARGENTINA’S WINGED FORTRESS

Operated by Argentinian, Colombian, Sri Lankan and Uruguayan Air Forces, the FMA IA 58 Pucará (fortress) is the subject of Kinetic’s latest new tooling.

DISPLAY CASE

EXTRA IMAGES INSIDE: A traditional starting point for many, aircraft modelling is arguably the most popular form of the hobby – as shown by this month’s selection of reader builds.


ARMOUR-HUNTER ALBUM

Valiant Wings has announced its 17th Airframe Album book is to be dedicated to the Henschel Hs 129 Panzerjäger (armour-hunter) ground-attack aircraft operated by German forces during World War Two.

GUNS, BOMBS AND ROCKETS

There have been many books dedicated to US Army Air Force aircraft during World War Two, yet few have focused on the weapons carried by these machines; Canfora Publishing’s latest release seeks to address that shortfall.

SCHWALBE SNEAK PEAK!

Here's a sneak preview of Valiant Wings' new Airframe & Miniature guide to the Messerschmitt Me 262 - an updated, expanded and extensively re-written second edition of the firm's first ever publication.

THUNDERBIRDS ARE GO!

In the first of its quarterly product announcements, Bachmann Europe has previewed a new range of classic Thunderbirds model kits to be released under the Adventures in Plastic (AiP) brand.
