Magazine review: IPMS/USA Journal Vol.23 #1

The latest issue of the Journal hit a while back.  I’ve been meaning to do a review, but I am afraid I put it off, partly because there are only so many ways to say “great magazine”.  However, this issue is particularly noteworthy in that the editor has remedied one of the few deficiencies.  In previous issues, when there has been an article with a scratchbuild or heavy modification, there haven’t been scale drawings to go along with the article.  This limited the ability of the modeler/reader to duplicate the work.

In this issue, there is an excellent heavy conversion of an F4U-1 back to the prototype.  The modeler/author did a great job.  In addition to the numerous photos of the project, there is an excellent set of drawings in the magazine.  Kudos to all involved.

As usual, the rest of the magazine is excellent.  If you are a modeler and are not a member of IPMS/USA you are missing out.  Join today.  Tell them David Knights sent you.
