Some cool shots of this upcoming kit.  This is one I want to get.  I have a bunch of C-47/DC-3 that I’d like to do.

Magazine review: Small Air Forces Observer Vol. 36 #2 (142)

As I mentioned previously, I am trying to get caught up with a lot of things, including magazine reviews.  This issue is the October 2012 issue of SAFO.  While it isn’t quite as interesting to me as the previous issue, it is still chock full of good stuff.  There is part of a continuing series on the NKPAF in the Korean War. There is an article on C-46s in the Congo. There is an article on Frank Tinker, an American who became a Republican pilot during the Spanish Civil War.  Finally, there is a series of line drawings on the markings of C-47s used by Central and South American Air Forces.

As always I urge anyone to subscribe to SAFO.  Every issue is a treat.

SAFO 35 #1

This issue is the July 2011 issue of SAFO.  As a fan of small air forces, I find SAFO to be an invaluable resource.  This issue contains part 1 of an article on the North Korean Air Force in the Korean War.  It also has a nice article on C-47s in Katangan service in Africa.  There are other articles as well.  I don’t want to sound like a broken record, but SAFO is a must have item for anyone with interest in small air forces.
