Magazine review: Military Aircraft Monthly Vol.9 #1

This issue features a cover story on the Ju-87.  It also has an interetsing article on the Hurricane in the defense of Malta during WWII.  There is a set of color sideview illustrations of Japanese aggressor F-15 colors and markings.  The magazine also has one of the most incoherent articles I’ve read lately, a brief history of the Lockheed L-10 Electra, or at least, I think that is what it was suppose to be.  Finally, there is an article on the colors and markings of the Tornado F.3s  of No. 43 Squadron RAF, as they retire. 

For the 72nd scale enthusiast, Dr. David Geldmacher, last seeing publishing an article on Jim Bates blog, that subsequently ended up in the IPMS/USA Journal, has a build article on the 72nd scale RVHP kit of the AF-1 Guardian.

Rumor, via Jim Bates, says that having changed their name from Model Aircraft Monthly to Military Aircraft Monthly, this magazine has now decided to stop publishing modeling articles.  What a shame.
