Phoenix Scale Modelling International is a multi-interest modeling magazine hailing from Great Britain.

There is a digital version available which drops the price down to £4.99 for a single issue, or £19.99 for an annual subscription.
The July/August 2023 issue of Phoenix Scale Modeller International is divided into six general interest, color coded sections:
From the Phoenix Scale Publications website, “Phoenix Scale Publications is a partnership of four people who have worked in the modelling and aviation press for many years and have come together to produce two brand-new, high-quality modelling titles and a new book series – for modellers, by modellers – with each partner bringing their own unique talents.”

One of the latest in Mushroom Model Publications’ White Series, Finnish Trainer Colours 1930-1945 follows up earlier volumes on Finnish aircraft: 2021’s Finnish & German Seaplane Colours 1939-1945; 2018’s Finnish Jet Colours; 2018’s Finnish Bomber Colours, 1939-1945; 2015’s Finnish Fighter Colours, 1939-1945, Volume 2; and 2014’s Finnish Fighter Colours, 1939-1945, Volume 1. MMP is calling this book part of their "Rainbow Series." I'm guessing that refers to their large format camouflage and markings set of books in their "White" series that have addressed Bulgaria, Finland, Hungary, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, and Sweden. This series seems to share a commonality of discussing the specific topic of the evolution of a countries' evolution in markings. To that end, this book utilizes many previously un-published pictures and focuses in on individual aircraft to supplement with superb color illustrations.
