Modeller’s Notes
Des Brennan

Also under way is a full mixed-media kit of the CH-54 in 1/48, including the M121 ‘Daisy Cutter’ bomb, which will also be available separately.

IPMS Column

Coronavirus has had many impacts on our lives over the past eleven months, many of them difficult, some of them tragic and most of them generally frustrating. To be faced suddenly with a situation where our lives are not our own to control, where we are unable to pursue the joys and pleasures we take for granted, and instead find ourselves all too often restricted to our own four walls is not something that is comfortable.
