IN miniature


This is the 4th issue of the year for 2017 (our 31st year of publication). 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 - Bruce Chapman, Mick Mirkovic, Clarke Cone, Daniel Espanon, Gary Wickham, Dave Muir, Ley Reynolds, Allen Yee, Roger Lambert, RAAF & 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 Ley Reynolds & John Baxter for the review material.

With Gary Wickham's 3 articles I have not attempted to modify Gary's HTML code to add an 'Index' button to the bottom of the pages, just use the 'Back' button in your browser to return to the Index page.

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.
