This month we delve into various scales ranging from 1/700 up to 1/160. Things start off with one of my favourite kits, the Airfix HMS Belfast in 1/600 scale. Keith Butterley shows what can be done to this classic with the addition of WEM PE and resin details. Richard Eaton then provides an OOB build of the Revell 1/700 USS San Juan.

Inbox reviews this time go from a 1/160 wooden schooner kit by Lynn Dunn, to a pair of 1/400 Polish warships by myself, and end with a 1/350 modern frigate by Mike Dunn.

To go along with these great kits, references are required, and this month we have the latest in the Snyder & Short series of WW2 warship paint chips - the long-awaited RN Set2 is now out. To round it all off, there are reviews of four of the excellent Profile Morskie books, this time on WW2 cruisers from Great Britain and Italy.
