Jon Guttman joins the fray with the first in his long-running series of volunteer airmen of various nations who served with France's Foreign Legion of the Air-first up is is the biographies of Corporals Paul Frank Baer and David Wilber Lewis,both American -born whose colourful SPAD fighters adorn this issue's special tricolour cover-seven rare photos are included along with two sets of  mono drawings for SPAD camouflage five -colour patterns.Modeller H J Randall offers chapter and verse on building his 1:48 scale Merlin Models Albatros D.II whilst Norman Witcomb tackles the smaller 1:72 scale D.II from Meikraft.On  the gallery pages WS readers send in their latest creations and some fine models are presented and our ongoing Fabric column looks at early French  finishes with  colour photos of Guynemer's preserved Vieux Charles SPAD 7 and light yellow paint chip,On other pages we follow the progress of an original Captoni bomber as it goes to Wright Patterson for restoration and Colin Owers presents his 1:72 SPAD A.4 plans feature with photos and tone drawings. Some large flying scale models come under the microscope and there are over four pages of kit reviews and more.For German aircraft fans there's a real gem on the rear cover,a colour page from a post war Japanese book that presents four German reparation aircraft drawn from life and the colours are very interesting.Slight creasing on the covers of this single example, but it's complete.
