Cover Story... MAIN IMAGE: 1/35 Leopard C1 MEXAS by Michael Shackleton LEFT INSET: Trumpeter T-62 Mod 1972 by Wouter Vrints

elcome to Military Modelling Magazine, Volume 47, Number 10, which, more by accident than design, contains the most articles so far during my tenure. It is at times like this that I wish I had at least 30 more pages to play with which would, I’m sure, worry the competition no end and secure the future of this great modelling magazine. The sales figures that are presented to me every month always fascinate me and I can report that we seem to be holding our own and according to one cross sector analysis we are currently the only magazine in our sector not in negative figures; we are up 0.9% don’t all whoop at once! So, what have we shoe-horned in this month? There are no less than eleven articles to choose from beginning with a Canadian Leopard by Michael Shackleton then Wouter Vrints operates outside of his comfort zone with a wrecked T-62. Keith Sharples finishes off his scratch-built Sherman; an article which is designed to encourage you to take up scratch building and to learn from some of the techniques he has applied to this project rather than focussing on the actual subject. The interesting little Shi-Ke tractor and Toby Knight’s Marder III follow and Ray Westlake continues his series about the 19th and early 20th Century engineers. A larger than life Zulu king is our figure of the month and Mike Bunn takes us back to modelling basics; this time looking at tools. There are two show reports; one on Tank Fest and one covering World Expo 2017 which sandwiches another thought provoking article by Ivan Cocker about weathering; inspiration really is all around us! Please feel free to contact me on the e-mail below if you have an idea for an article or a constructive comment to make. Also, don’t forget www.militarymodelling. com, the magazine’s own popular website, which has a vibrant forum covering every conceivable modelling subject. ‘Carry On!’
