Magazine review: Scale Aircraft Modelling Vol. 34 #3 (May 2012)

I noted in my last review of an issue of SAM that they seemed to be moving away from 72nd scale models.  There is a little more 72nd content  in this issue.   It features a build of two 72nd Wessex and a build of the new Cyberhobby Sea Vixen FAW.1.  The articles are serviceable, if not spectacular.

The odd thing about this issue is the feature on an all black 48th scale P-61.  This article was brought to my attention by Jim Bates.  The model is well done and the photos and layout are great.  However, the thrust of the article centers around how to do a weathered black finish.  Yet, no where in the article is any real description of the painting of the model.  It is odd to the point of the being jarring.

I haven’t been impressed with the last two issues of SAM.  With the death of SAMI (at least to me) I hope SAM improves.
