IPMS Journal

IPMS Journal

The latest IPMS Journal is out and, as usual, it is filled with great articles.  I’ve said that the recent issues of the Journal remind me of what FineScale Modeler use to be.  They are filled with great articles, demonstrating everything from straight-up builds to scratchbuilds.  Like the early FineScales, I find that with the Journal, I read all the articles, even ones that aren’t particularly in my “area” since there always seems to be a hidden gem in each article.

This issue features a really nice build of a 1940 Ford and an almost scratchbuilt 17th century Spanish cannon.  The patina on the cannon is really a nice effect and the wrtier does a great job explaining how he achieves the finish.  Another great effort by the entire IPMS Journal and staff.

Bonus: The modeldaughter reading the latest issue to me.

  1. Yea that cannon article was really interesting. I don’t know if I would compare it to the old FSM, but it is certainly closer then the current FSM is!
