All of WWI modeler have or had sometime a Windsock Special on hands.

It`s have a good quality print in a gloss thin paper.

Their graphic style is quite unique and different for today standard like you see in others magazines.

 

 

On the cover front of the Albatros B.II removed from one Ronny Bar profile. almost all topics covered within this issue is on the cover but not all.

 

As all Windsock Datafile frontline and logbook made the two first pages.

 

Now a serious case: Harry Woodman chapter... this series are well worth an entire book. This time is plastic card techniques to make fuselages, wings, tail wings, propellers, airsrews... Everything from scratch...

            Conclusion:

 

The Windsock datafile always contains a lot of information varied and very interesting to any lover of WWI.

In top of that there lots of pics that are perfect for modellers.

So if you have a Alb on your stash... this one is for you. If you like/love WWI, this one is also for you.

If you scracthbuild is on your next project or its just your thing, this one is definitely for you.

 

Very highly recommend.
