This month we start with a 'Flea', progress on to a 'Swordfish' and end with a 'Stallion'. Along the way there are also a comparison of the various Spitfire Mk.V and Mk.IX kits. The Ocidental kit has been unjustly critiqued since its release, Michael Benolkin's analysis should put an end to that rumour. John Lester provides a build of the new Tamiya Swordfish, while I profile 12 options for those who wish to build something different. Moving up to 1/24 Scale we have a pair of Stukas by Frank Mitchell, and at the opposite end, there is a 1/144 Marauder by Caz Dalton. All in all a nice collection.
