The April issue of SAM features some inspiring work, as well as provides some significant reference material. A regular contributor to SAM, Pete Mossong, along with fellow contributors Dave Wilson and Damon Edwards, provides an “Aviation in Profile” article covering the BAC 167 Strikemaster in RNZAF service. Filled with color images of the BAC 167 and supplemented with scale drawings and data, this 10-page article provides excellent reference material to the modeler wishing to build a Strikemaster.

Featured in this issue are articles by Ioannis Giavasis and Massimo Santarossa. Giavasis tackles a classic Airfix kit, the Saab Viggen in 1/48th scale, while Santarossa builds the Great Wall P-61A, the second variant of the Black Widow by Great Wall. Both are fantastic builds and provide much in the way of detailed imaging that will greatly aid anyone building these models.

As is the case in each issue of SAM, there are a number of “Compact Build Reviews”. In this issue, there six CBRs.

  • Jay Laverty (the editor of SAM) builds and reviews the new Airfix Vampire T.11.
  • Dale Wilson builds the Fujimi A-4 in Australian markings.
  • Chris Fleet reviews the Sword Harrier in 1/72nd scale.
  • James Ashton builds the AFV Club 1/48th F-5.
  • Seb Videc reviews the Eduard Mig-21 in 1/144th scale
  • Mark Elliot reviews the Fly Models BAC Strikemaster.

SAM is highly recommended for its content, which features high quality builds, and also for its articles which include some excellent reference information. The “Tailpiece” section is also a resource for modelers who are looking for the newest items or looking for suppliers of fine aftermarket items.

Thanks to Scale Aircraft Modelling and IPMS-USA for the opportunity to review the April issue.
