Just came across a neat site. The British Daily Mail newspaper has an interactive site which shows every V-2 impact in Britain with a clickable link on each one which gives more info on the particular impact site.

This is the second of the two issues I picked up at the IPMS/USA Nationals in Hampton, VA for the bargain price of $4.50 an issue. As noted previously, the July issue was very light on 72nd scale models. The good news is that the August issue gives us slightly more 72nd scale stuff, with two 72nd scale builds, including an SB2U mini-featurette. I was especially pleased to see this as I am working on one of these kits. The bad news is that for a second issue in a row 48th scale kits seem to get the lion’s share of the love with at least 4 articles. Additionally, the issue is pretty light on historical articles and this use to be a lot of what made SAM great back in the Alan Hall days. Finally, the typos continue to occur. In this issue, about 12 paragraphs in the Fiat G.91 article repeat twice, making the thing a real dog’s breakfast, though the accompanying kit looks very nice.
SAM continues to disappoint, going quickly the way of FineScale. Sad to see.

Now he is messing with the Canadian Navy. I think he may find he has bitten off more than he can chew.
