IN this issue:Steve Rutland visits Old Rhinebeck to report on the model and full-size events held in September 2000 whilst Harry Woodman concludes his two-part study of the Voisin III with more unique photos and exclusive sketches and specs. that will prove invaluable reference to those building models of this classic French pusher.Colin Owers provides the plans feature this time and it's a real oddball- the Friedrichshafen FF54 Quadruplane with a couple of archive photos and drawings in 1:48 and 1:72 to inspire scratchbuilders! Colin also unearths US National Archive documents on WWI US Naval aircraft finishes to share with us and master modeller Lance Krieg builds and reviews the Copper State Brandenburg W12 with plenty of modelling tips and step-by-step photos.There are five pages of kit and decal reviews,a rare wartime Pfalz poster reproduced in colour and some contemprary postcards depicting Felixstowe flying boats.Readers' models and an expanded book review section where Harry Woodman deconstructs Squadron Signal's WWI German bombers close out this packed edition.
