The second issue of this magazine continues the quality of the first with some superb modelling and reference subjects. This issue has a winter feel with three of the articles showing vehicles with whitewash finish.

This issue starts with six pages showing Dave Parker's nice build of the Coree Panzer IV Ausf A. The kit is in resin with etched details supplied and the finished model is well illustrated with good photos.

The next fourteen pages are on a DML JS-1 by Adam Wilder (subtitled 'Winter Wonderland part one'). The article has many step by step photos on the models construction, painting and weathering and the techniques shown can also be used on other models.

Following this is nine pages showing Phil Hyslop's build of Cromwell Models Panzer III D1 command tank which includes some interior shots from the tech manual as well as a few wartime photos.

A short reference photo spread of six pages has 32 colour photos of T72. There is some great close-up exterior shots as well as some of the turret interior.

Following this is part 1 of detailing the Dragon Elephant with the Jaguar resin interior. There are many in-progess photos showing the construction as well as text explaining the photos. This article will be continued in Issue 3 of AFV Modeller.

Winter Wonderland part two is a Russian T40 Amphibious tank by Doug Jameson and again has in-progress shots of the construction as well as the painting.

Next is an M-7 Priest by Vince Pedulla in the finish of the 11th Regiment Royal Horse Artillery, El Alamein in 1942 with numerous photos of the finished model.

Finally there is Winter Wonderland part three by Dinesh Ned and is of an M4A1 with the M1 dozer attachment. The model is well described as well as excellent photos of the finished model.

Another excellent issue of this high quality magazine for the dedicated armour modeller and well worth getting a hold of a copy.
