Front Cover and Contents Page

Most of the articles are based on Aviation subjects. However, other subjects are covered:
  • how to weather an Airfix WWI tank;
  • a build review of  an Airfix Aston Martin;
  • how to upgrade the Airfix Apollo Saturn;
  • and how to improve Mini Arts French Village Cottage (continued next issue)
There is a lot of editorial content in this magazine, an 'advanced build' of a Hasegawa F4J starts with a few pages describing a sortie over Vietnam. It also has some useful reference photographs. 
The Sea Vixen and Saturn V articles also have a lot of photographs and a brief history. None of the articles have colour profiles that show a range of colour schemes for the type, instead they focus on one particular aircraft. Each of the builds feature a step-by-step picture build format. 
The 1/72nd Airfix Spitfire I and Eduard Su 17/22 Fitter articles take a more wordy approach.
There is also an article on brush painting techniques.
The kit, decal and accessory review section is quite brief, as is the news section.
The magazine is 98 pages long (not too many adverts) and will take a while to read from cover to cover. There is a slight bias towards Airfix and Humbrol products but the balance is just about right. There is also a good balance between straight-forward and advanced build techniques. 
The magazine is priced at £3.99 (CAN $10.99)
