Wonder how this kit is?  Wonder how it compares to the Airfix kit?

Magazine review: RT Volume 40 #1

In past reviews I’ve said just about all I can say about RT.  It is, IMHO, the best non-commercial modeling magazine out there, and in fact is one of the best magazines period.  It is the only modeling magazine that I read all of the articles regardless of subject or scale.

This issue is no different.  In addition to an excellent article on building the 72nd scale Airfix Spitfire PR.XIX, there is an article on building and improving the Italeri Italian manned torpedo from WWII.  There is also build article on a 1/144th 727 airliner.  Finally there are two articles on the RG-31 Nyala, MRAP/ wheeled APC.  The first is a history of the vehicle, with a focus on its use by the Canadian armed forces, while the second is a construction article using the Kenetic kit as the starting point.  Both are excellent reads, even for a non-armor guy like myself.

Highly recommended.

After a couple of good years from Airfix for 72nd scale releases, this year they’ve slowed their introduction of new 72nd scale kits.  However, we are getting a new Airfix Wellington.  I predict several versions will ultimately appear.

The Airfix Me-262 has been released.  I cannot wait to see this one and have to admit that it will move to the top of my building queue.

For years, those of us in 72nd scale had only the old Monogram Do-17.  Now we have the Airfix kit, the ICM kit and now Revell re-boxing the ICM kit.
