No. 59 in the Warpaint series THE Lockheed Hudson was part of the 1939 deal with America that Britain needed in order to bolster the maritime surveillance defences so essential to the country's survival during time of war. Originly 200 were ordered bwt this grew to five times that number by the end of World War 2. In addition Australia, New Zealand and Canada received Hudsons in quantity and even the US Navy had an anti-submarine Group which was equipped with the type. After the United States entered the war the Hudson was adopted as a navigation trainer and gunnery trainer by the USAAF as the A-29 and over 300 were built some of which were given under Lease-Lend to Brazil. The Hudson had a magnificent war record which has hardly ever been emphasised in contemporary literature. They sank a large number of U-boats and even accepted the surrender of one which had been -forced to the surface after being attecked with depth charges. All of these facts are graphically described by author Alar:l W.Hali in this 42-page book which is full of colour and black and wl

Editorial Comment A privileged position Editing a magazine about scale aircraft modelling, as with all jobs, has its fair share of ups and downs. Among the ups - and this is something that readers very often ask me about - is seeing all those lovely review kits, often some weeks before they reach the model shop shelves. One of the major downs is having to give them all away to SAM's eager team of reviewers. If I reviewed more than the one or two a year that I tackle, the Kit Reviews section of Marketplace would amount to a 200-word occasional column! The major up is when something astounding comes about. This happened recently when a lady e-mailed the office to see if SAM might be interested in publishing some of her father's photographs. The scans that she enclosed were good enough to arouse my interest; it's not often that previously unseen images of Sea Hornets and Panthers emerge from the ether. We corresponded and she sent the set in. They were very nice indeed and definitely the makings of an interesting photo-feature. Then I started looking more carefully. The photographs were taken on and around HMS Perseus, that much I knew. Researching the ship revealed that it had been a key player in early steam catapult trials and that the photographs tied in exactly with that period. The resulting feature now records a key moment in post-war military aviation and one of the major developments in the history of naval aviation. I am utterly privileged to be able to bring them to you.
