A new book!

I got this to review recently for Model Military Int'l and although I can't say much here what I CAN tell you is that if you have any interest in Soviet period armour then I can wholeheartedly recommend this book;

Available from;

Inside The Armour

To be honest I was a bit sceptical as some books I have with builds in them tend to be spoiled by sub-standard models however this is CERTAINLY not the case with this one, plus the addition of photo's of actual armour I personally found inspiring. Good stuff and well worth a read!

S-3 Viking

When I fitted the Wolfpack inner wings there was a slight step between them and the wing roots on the fuselage so after some filling and sanding they look a bit more acceptable. The engraved panel lines did'nt quite match between the resin wings and fuselage so the upshot of all the sanding was their removal so these were re-scribed and liquid glue was then run into the lines to clean them out;
I'm waiting on some styrene tube so that I can line that hole in the base of the fin but the build is'nt THAT far away from completion...I think....then again I'm still pondering on those sonobuoy tubes.
