Model Aircraft Monthly Vol. 10 #4

MAM is back!  Well, sort of.  Having seen the error of thier ways, the folks at SAM Publications (the folks who bring you SAMI) has returned MAM to its former name and format.  The number 4 issue of Volume 10 is the first with the “new” old name and the old format, a mix of aircraft history and modeling.

It is a good issue.  It isn’t without its flaws.  It is plagued by typos, as is its sister publication SAMI.  Also, some of the modeling content isn’t up to the standards of the older issues.  However, there is clearly hope.  It is nice to have a model magazine that I can’t read in an hour and a half.

The main feature of this issue is a focus on the MiG-21, which is in concert with the Eduard release in 48th scale.  In addition, there is a very nice article on the different underside finishes of early war Spitfires.

I am glad to see this magazine go back to its roots.  It is the one that was closest to the old SAM prior to its “switch” to an all aviation format.  I look forward to further issues.  Welcome back.
