Issue 10 is another excellent issue, the contents are as follows:

Sturmhaubitze 42 by Jari Lievonen
A comprehensive article on building the Revell model which features a complete interior using Aires and CMK resin sets as well as rebuilt fighting compartment from plastic card. There are many photos of the kit during construction showing the extensive detailing of the interior as well as shots of the finished kit.

M24 Panther Pup by Frederick Astier
Another extensive article on building the Italeri M24 backdated to the WWII version. There are many photos of the model during construction showing the many details added as well as during the painting stage and of the finished model.

Xtreme detail
To compliment the above article is this detailed look at the M24 with many close-up shots of the exterior and interior of a restored Chaffee.

Superdetailed PzIV/70(v) by Alex Clark
Looking at the photos of this model it is hard to believe it is actually a 1/72 kit. The article describes in great detail the construction of a full interior for the 1/72 Revell kit of the Pz IV/70. The detail in this model would do any 1/35 model proud and looks even more impressive in this small scale. The construction photos are complimented with some interior photos of the real vehicle.

Basic Brass
An extremely useful and informative article on working with etched brass. Shown are some of the tools which make the tasks easier as well techniques on bending, rolling and soldering the metal parts. A step by step guide on making those working ABER hinges will be most useful as well as those intimidating tool clasps.

Keeping Track - New releases
The usual 4 page run down on new products for the modeller with brief descriptions and photos of the products featured.

T55 - Back to Basics by Adam Wilder
A step by step build of the Tamiya T-55 with many photos during the construction phase. The kit is built straight from the box and shows just how good the Tamiya kit is. There are also many photos of the painting sequence showing the addition of frozen snow to produce a nice effect not often seen.

The standard of this magazine just keeps getting better with each issue.
