IN miniature


This is the 3rd issue of the year for 2012. Bruce Chapman's photos from his trip return but this time we have moved on to Le Bourget. I have put Dick Hourigan's reviews under the modelling section as mostly they are very detailed. Also it would have otherwise made the index page very unbalanced if they were down at the bottom.

As usual I have to thank those people who have kindly allowed us to reproduce their articles and photos this issue, in particular the following - Eamon Hamilton, Gary Wickham, Bruce Chapman, Fred Harris, Mick Mirkovic, Clarke Cone, Dave Edwards, Dick Hourigan & the AHMWA. Don't forget that all photos credited to these individuals are subject to copyright and cannot be reproduced without their written permission. I also am grateful to John Baxter, Dave Richardson & Ley Reynolds for the review material.

Don't forget that all and any contributions to this publication are always welcomed, so send any material to the editorial address (P.O Box and email listed at the end of this page), or hand it to me at club meetings.
