Brilliant work - keep it up Reviewed Thursday, August 20, 2020

Tamiya Model Magazine

I like the magazine format and content. One thing I would like to see is more details on how to achieve the finish of the models in particular the models of Sungjun Jang. They were very dry on his painting technique. Reviewed Sunday, March 1, 2020

Highly inspiring

Really interesting magazine Reviewed Thursday, July 25, 2019

Best in class

One of the best magazines for models Reviewed Tuesday, July 16, 2019

Love having this mag on my phone!

App works well. Extra issues are £2.99 via in app purchase. Runs from SD and downloads issues to (internal) SD space. I had a force close once, but it seems to be more reliable now. Great to have these mags on Android though! Reviewed Thursday, March 20, 2014
