WINDSOCK WWC , Vol.30, No.2, SUMMER 2014
THE second edition of the first centenary year provided enthusiasts with a real tour de force of WWI modelling and reference. Our extended news section leads into our popular readers' gallery before the issue gets into its stride with a really superb large scale radio-controlled Avro 504K powered by a fully operational 1:4 scale Bentley rotary engine and the unique combination flies as well as it looks! The editor's third Coloured Thinking piece attempts to unravel the controversial colours of the German Roland C.II to support our detailed reviews of Wingnut's recent releases. Carefully-selected archive photos and three Ronny Bar profiles add further support.
Lance Krieg's 1914 semi-scratchbuilt Taube to 1:48 scale is a perfect 'Great War' centenary project that will inspire and impress in equal measure.Other highlights include a double page colourspread of post -war International Fokker D.VIIs;build notes for a 1:72 OEF D.III with George Haddow scale plans and some great archive images of engines and cockpits;plus there are reviews of some stunning kits from Wingnut, Encore and Choroszy Modelbud.The packed issue closes with news of the latest scale pilot figures and growing ranks of WWI military vehicle model kits with aeronautical connexions. This issue sold out some time ago but we recently unearthed a few ex-file copies and these are now available for a limited period only.
