Magazine review: Scale Aircraft Modelling Vol. 35 #12 (Feb. 2014)

This issue attracted me immediately since on the cover it had a model of one of my favorite aircraft, the MiG-17.  Sadly the model build of the 17 inside is in 32nd scale.  However, the feature article is also on the MiG-17, so it is well worth the price of the magazine.  The article itself is nothing special, but the plans and color side drawings are great.

For the 72nd scale modeler, there are build/kit reviews of the Hobbyboss Tu-2, The Airfix Harrier GR.1 and the Special Hobby Yak-23.

All in all, it is a good issue, though the typo/proofreading issues of previous years seems to be coming back with a vengeance.  I spotted over a half dozen in on quick skim thru the issue.  I hope this doesn’t continue as it mars an otherwise good magazine.
