Correspondent Emilio has kindly made me aware of a new Spanish modelling magazine, available both in digital and printed format as Apuntes de Modelismo. The new magazine has been launched by expert modeller Manuel Gil and designer Antonio Ramil, both friends of Emilio and all members of the same modelling club - Centro Cultural Escala. As can be seen the first issue is focussed on the Hawker Hurricane Mk I with fabric wings. The magazine will cover all modelling subjects and not just aircraft but there will be more issues featuring aircraft subjects in the future. I very much like the idea of a magazine that features a particular type and combines modelling, factual history and a kitography. An English edition of the Issue 1 digital magazine is also available here.
Manuel Gil has produced some superb models of Japanese aircraft subjects, including the Ki-79 (above) from the RS Models 1/72 kit and the excellent Ki-27 Ko (below) from the ICM 1/72 kit. Little gems, both of them - and of course in The One True Scale ;-)
