|REVIEWER:||Scott Van Aken - IPMS Canada #5729|
Despite closed borders, the latest edition of IPMS Canada's Random Thoughts arrived in the mails the other day. As usual, there are some excellent articles within. As usual, each has a plethora of photos to help those who wish to try to duplicate these efforts.
The initial offering is a nicely done Airfix 1/72 Gladiator by Massimo Santarossa. Most of us shy away from doing this aircraft due to the somewhat complex painting required, but the work is worth the result.
Next, is Frank Cudden's kit bash of a Minicraft and Lindberg Beechcraft Bonanza to duplicate the aircraft in which Buddy Holly lost his life in 1959.
Thunder Models 1/35 Scammel Pioneer is the next article. This is a very nicely done subject by Barry Madden that shows his skills.
Evan Jones presents an interesting comparison feature on doing chrome for your project. Well worth reading.
Finally, for big scale fans, John Lumley builds the Italeri 1/72 CF-104 and uses a ton of aftermarket to make a stunning presentation.
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?
But wait, there is more. If you join, you also get the electronic Beaver Tales delivered straight to your computer.
