WINDSOCK Int Vol.4, No.2, Summer 1988 (h)
This 1988 edition was our second WIND-SOCK to present full-colour cover plates including three nightfighter Sopwith Camels profiles to support this edition's main plans feature. We show how to model a white metal metal Berg D.I kit and apply its 'hex'camouflage decals; there's a semi-scratchbuilt Albatros D.IV model; Vickers FB5 cutaway and Fabric has all the 'dope' on PC10 complete with two paint chips!
THIS packed 40 page issue leads with a special feature on Sopwith Comic nightfighters with 1:72 scale plans,ten photos and three colour profiles on the rear covers in support. The first of two modelling articles details the build of a white metal Aviatik D.I fighter with notes on applying its distinctive 'hex' camouflage,accompanied by archive photos and step-by-step images.Next up is a conversion showing how to create an Albatros D.IV from a 1:72 scale Revell Albatros D.III married to Airfix DH4 wings-sounds crazy but it works! Scale drawings and archive photos are provided.The Vickers FB5 is the second of our Plane Portraits series with four photos and a highly-detailed centrespread cutaway drawing that will be invaluable to modellers of this classic pusher. We also look at the thorny topic of PC10 colours and provide a pair of actual paint chips. This landmark issue also includes a dozen pages showcasing readers' models; Voisin photo archive plus stacks of kit,decal and book reviews.Slightly worn example but complete.
