Abrams Squad issue number nine has just been released. Abrams Squad has set itself apart from other publications as THE magazine for the modern armor modeller. Chock full of interesting build articles and techniques this one is sure to be a must for the fans of this genre. Check it out!
Hot on the heels of their recent and hugely successful release of their special issue on the Abram Tank, "Modelling the Abrams Tank", Abrams Squad magazine has just released issue #9! This issue is full of great looking builds as well as tips and tricks on how to make your next project that much more amazing and satisfying. Here is a peak at whats inside:

Contents:
4 Commanders Display Unit: A regular section devoted to news and reviews of model kits, aftermarkets, books and much more.

8 Remote Thermal Sight: In this issue, an entire Squad has collaborated to finish the new SCUD B from Trumpeter. Its an impressive model kit in all aspects that will make happy even the most demanding modelers. Take a look at this article and decide for yourself!

20 T-80 Vanilla: One of the most talented specialists in Soviet tanks has linkedup with the team and will charm us with a real Frankenstein. With parts from four different kits and a lot of scratch, Andy Taylor accurately replicates one of the early T-80s.

30 Winterfell Leopard 1A5NO2 : As we promised in the previous issue, new recruits have joined the Squad. Roel Geutjens, an expert in Leopards (in the real world) astonishes us with a singular piece and an eye catching livery. We hope that you enjoy his article and that Roel will go on contributing his talent to this publication.

42 Buffalo: After two contributions, Abrams Squad veteran Lukasz Orzic-Musialek changes his subject matter and shows us how to detail and improve a great three axled MRAP. The kit from Bronco is spectacular, and Lukasz never disappoints thanks to his talents and skills.

54 Type 99 : And as these things always come in threes, zgr Guner is another new contributor. In our quest to offer you all kinds of vehicles, we have asked zgr to show his dexterity with this unusual SPH. Since the Type 99 is only used by JGSDF, there is no doubt that this article will arouse your curiosity about this subject.

66 Combined Resolve II : Ralph Zwilling, one of the most reputable reporters and authors of the modeling and military circle, offers us a great article with the most crushing images of these maneuvers made in Germany. No doubt that you will find a handful of inspiring ideas for your next model.

Lots to tantalize the modern armor modeller! Be sure to check out the Abrams Squad website here:

Looks like a good magazine, anyone know of a retailer in the US? By the way, catchy thread title.

Hi Russell - I know Sprue Brothers and M&Models sells it in the US. However, I sometimes order it straight from PLA Editions because with the Euro/Dollar parity now it can be cheaper than actually buying from a US distributor.
