Modellers Reference Library Magazine RAF Radials Back Issue

English
39 Reviews   •  English   •   Hobbies & Crafts (Collecting)
Following on from Spencer Pollard’s earlier aircraft titles, he changes direction with a book that deals exclusively with not only 1/72 aircraft, but also ones kitted by Airfix and in the colours of the Royal Air Force! ‘RAF Radials’ deals with three different aircraft, all powered by these magnificent engines. The result is a wonderful collection of classic aircraft that you can study and then hopefully, build for your collection of World War II RAF aircraft.
The book deals with the following aircraft:
Airfix 1/72 Bristol Beaufighter TF.X
Airfix 1/72 Vickers Wellington Mk.1A
Airfix Avro Lancaster B.Mk.II
Each chapter offers plenty of construction and painting tips, with easy to follow ideas that will help you to build the models, should you chose to be inspired to do so. Though the kits have been built essentially ‘from the box', there is plenty of additional notes that cover not only construction, but also painting and weathering, the latter a fundamental part of each project. You will find ideas that cover basic paint application, colour notes, decalling tips and then ideas that will help you bring out the best from the detail that has not only been created by Airfix, but in the case of the Beaufighter and Lancaster, some that has been added as well. Much of this is aimed at beginners, but if you are more advanced, there’s plenty for you as well, with weathering ideas that modellers with more experience can enjoy.
If you want to add one of these models to your collection, this is the book for you!
