|REVIEWER:||Scott Van Aken - IPMS Canada #5729|
The latest edition of IPMS Canada's Random Thoughts arrived in the mails the other day. As usual, there are some excellent articles within, including some that are a bit eclectic.
I'll start off with the cover item. This is Steve Sauve's Hasegawa Spitfire Vb. He has chosen a 401 Squadron plane even though it served with the unit for only about 2 months. However, the aircraft has a considerable number of interesting differences from the norm. Steve has put in a lot of research into this plane which he shares with us, making for a very interesting article.
Next is a 1/72 leFH18/40 in 1/72 scale. This is quite an excercise in kit bashing with some scratchbuilding by Al Magnus as he uses four kits to produce this one.
A nice Amy Johnson bust is Brian Latour's offering in this issue.
There is also a nice scratch built Matilda I by Ron Bell. His 1/72 kit uses a bunch of techniques and materials that I think you'll fine interesting.
The last item is another unusual entry that involves a fairly poor vacuform and the expected scratch building to take care of errors. Harvey Low shows us how he built his SM.74 and the result is worth all his efforts.
Another fine edition and one I look forward to every quarter. So, you are wondering, just how do I get this great club magazine. Well, it is simple. Just trade uncolorful money for full color magazines. IPMS Canada is a great group of people so you will be in very good company. Can't get much better than that, eh?
