This is the 4th issue of the year for 2022 (our 37th 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 - Owen Lambert, Ley Reynolds, Andrew Wetzlich, Bruce Chapman, Alan Yee, Roger Lambert, Dave Muir, Gary Wickham, 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 for the review material.

This issue has more of Gary Wickham's excellent modelling and review articles from his 'Scalespot' website. Highly recommended to go to his site at to see the latest. For Gary's articles use the 'back' button to get back to the index page. Also please note that the original version of issue 36/3 uploaded had Mick Mirkovic's article on the delivery of ZG791 to the Bull Creek museum incorrectly credited to myself, rather than Mick. That has now been corrected.

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.
