Magazine review: AIR #22

This magazine is a tough one for me.  It is done by the same folks and in the same style as AFV.  It is a beautifully produced magazine.  The projects covered are well detailed and illustrated and aren’t your run of the mill, out-of-the-box projects.  The articles do a really good job of illustrating the techniques used on the model and described in the text.  The photos are not the typical, “Here is the half built model in front of a bottle of paint” that you see in FineScale.  I probably pick up more modeling techniques from this magazine than from any other. 

On the down side, it is expensive as heck.  It also tends to have articles and techniques that focus more on the larger scales.  I don’t buy every issue, but I buy a lot of them.  It doesn’t take me long to read them, but I do learn something new every time.
