Magazine review: RT Vol. 38 #2 (Summer 2016)

Frankly, I almost get tired of writing a review of issues of RT.  RT, as you know by now is the quarterly magazine of IPMS/Canada.  All of my reviews are pretty much the same since I am of the opinion that RT is the best modeling magazine out there, either commercial or non-commercial.

This issue is particularly good. Our good friend Jim Bates has the first part of a multi-part article on the Canadian Hurricanes.  This article contains a bunch of great reference photos and represents the kind of in depth research that modelers crave.  Jim has done a true service by gathering this info.  In addition, there are articles on a 1924 steam powered truck, a 72nd WWII Canadian minesweeper as well as a 35th scale build of the WWII Canadian army “Otter” recon vehicle. All of these articles are well worth reading and this magazine provided great reading material on a round trip flight to DC a few weeks ago.

If you aren’t already, you should become a member of IPMS/Canada right away.  Tell them David sent you.
