Is end of September I know, but still in time for a fresh and quick review on Windsock Summer Edition…

After all, still summer… apparently! J

It's with huge pleasure that I review this summer 2016 edition.

The summer edition has several very interesting items beyond the usual logbook series and review section.

 

There is a very interesting chapter with great tips from the legendary Harry woodman. They are scratch building tips and is part part No. 4, concerns engines, exhaust and cockpits and pilots seats.

This alone is well worth it.

Rara avis chapter is also a quite interesting one: schütte-lanz D. IVa 1918 prototype.

An overleaf of RAF Be2a excelent 1:48 plans are given under the Great War paint Camel four page pull up.

 

As you can see inside there's several pages dedicated to Camel... especially for the highly anticipated wnw Camel. A special Great War Paint for Sopwith Camel with several schemes and profiles.

Next  several close ups of the TVAL camel, with a small text with all the history of this camel after the war! The close up pictures are taken by James Fahey. These are simply perfect for the upcoming WnW Camel.

And finally just before the reviews chapter, a small but quite useful information on helmets, hats and headgear chapter: the western electric 1-A flight Helmet. 

On the reviews, several figures are analyzed like Kellerkind Russian pilot (that we also already reviewed), some stuff for HGW, Kellerkind Ordance and Aviattic Fuel tanks and future releases.

                   Conclusion:

 

A fantastic issue with precious information.

The scratch build section and the camel special are in fact a must have on the issue specially with the Camel Just coming in less than 4 months..

 

                   Very Highly recommend.

My sincere thanks to Ray Rimmel and Windsock for the opportunity and the review sample.
