WINDSOCK International,Vol.21,No.6 (h)
SANJEEVE Hirve builds an astonishing 1:48 scratch-built model of the staggering (literally!) Russian Bezobrazov WWI triplane with detailed assembly and painting notes supported by 18 colour photos and a sketch. Keeping up with the theme is Harry Woodman's informed background to the design and a photo feature on the 1915 Mosca monoplane follows- his1:72 scale drawings come with nine really rare Russian archive images.Colin Owers continues his USN finishes and markings series with Part 4 on post-war aluminium and 'dazzle' schemes with over 20 photos showing a variety of types and a variety of markings.On other pages, the editor takes to the virtual skies with PC flight simulators selecting a range of down-loadable freeware WWI types for Microsoft's FS2004 that offer a wide variety of armchair antics-from Caudrons to Stakkans. There's a nostalgic look at Aurora's Fokker D.VII from 1956;Wind-Sock Anniversary notes;2005 US IPMS Nats report with colour images of the best WWI models on show;plus a pull-out four page section of 1:32 scale Fokker D.VI drawings by Marty Digmayer to support our Kitbag reviews of GTM and Roden kits.Other kits are assessed along the way,with a new Osprey title discussed at length by Alex Imrie in Logbook.This issue also carries an obituary for Ian Stair who passed away in September 2005 and whose prolific output of highly-researched scale drawings appeared throughout our publications ,and many others before,giving modellers and manufacturers excellent drawings on which to base their kits and illustrations. We have just two copies of this Nov/Dec 2005 edition-both have cover creasing but are otherwise in good order and complete.
