"Military Armour International No. 8"
by Ian Sadler
The magazine under
review is Military Armour International No 11, Sept/ Oct 2000.
This magazine is
published in the familiar A4 portrait format with 50 pages of high quality
articles and photographs and plans.
The contents for this
The remainder of the
magazine is made up of a mini photomontage of Beltring IPMS Rally 2000 and
adverts of new books and products.
Two articles stand out
for me. The first is the SdKfz 223 with the full scratchbuilt interior. This
shows the truly outstanding work of a master model maker who can turn simple
plastic card and rod into a masterpiece.
The second is the
Danish V3. Using simple plastic card this model maker has turned the Toko GAZ AA
kit into a wonderful oddball, but original, model. I congratulate him on a very
good model and look forward to seeing more of his work in future editions.
Since I have started
reviewing this magazine, it has grown and improved with each edition. From No 5
we had the inclusion of an English translation. Now with No 11 it is totally in
English. The editors and publishers are to be congratulated on this bold move.
I feel that with this
edition it has fully evolved into the top model magazine for Military Armour. I
now rank it above Steel Masters and all the UK magazines had better get their
site is now at www.military-armor.com
Subscriptions are UK
£20-00 per year, Europe £24-00, and the rest of the world £28-00.
