The latest Datafile from Albatros Productions concludes Greg VanWyngarden’s detailed study of the Pfalz D.III. It’s a real inspiration for anyone modelling the type, with scale drawings and spectacular colour profiles combining with the scores of period photos with comprehensive captions that accompany the informative text that includes fascinating Allied pilots’ accounts of the enemy fighter.
Albatros Productions see out 2016 with the winter issue of Windsock. As usual there’s plenty of reading to keep early aviation enthusiasts busy as the nights draw in. The conclusion of Harry Woodman’s update of his classic Modelling Vintage Aircraft In Plastic Card examines painting techniques and also brings back many happy memories for me as Harry recalls his introduction of photo-etching to the wider modelling world via the pages of Scale Models in the early 1970s. There are research articles, including colour features on the Pfalz D.III and Sopwith Camel, while Lance Krieg goes to town on Roden’s Nieuport 28. Wrapping everything up, Kitbag examines many of the latest kits and accessories, with a selection ranging from 1:720 Zeppelins right up to the SPAD XIII in 1:24.

This year’s Christmas card from Ray Rimell is accompanied by the shock news that Albatros Productions won’t be issuing any fresh titles for a while.
