Welcome to Military Modelling Magazine, Volume 48, Number 2. This month’s issue begins with a classic build by Andy Evans featuring Bronco’s excellent US GPW Utility Truck. Often referred to as the ‘John Wayne Jeep’, because of the close resemblance to Wayne’s character, Lt Col Vandervoort in the classic war ‘The Longest Day’, Andy’s work takes centre stage on our cover. Also featured is Alex Clark’s incredible T-90A; incredible because I am still struggling to believe that this outstanding build is in 1/72! Another novel act this month is Ian Barraclough’s Landrover WMIK with its lifelike firing of a MILAN missile complete with sparks and flame. Further realism is conveyed in figure form with William Taits superb CGS and Verlinden diorama which will get you shivering with sympathy for these retreating French soldiers.
A feature on painting artillery, dress regulations of the 1st London Rifle Volunteer Corps, a Kettenkrad walk-around and coverage of the ‘Festival of Models’ in Bordeaux are also crammed into this busy edition of your favourite modelling magazine.
All the best

ALWAYS look forward to the figure articles in every issue - and 'In the Footsteps of Sergeant Bourgogne' is no exception... and that Land Rover model looks VERY interesting...

I have enjoyed another read of the monthly mag. Interesting editorial at the start. Thanks for plugging the Rolls. Really looking forward to the Kursk special next month. I think you should make it a weekly mag as its so popular
