Among the latest reference books to land on the review bench is Robert Panek's excellent MMP Orange Series study of the Hs 123.

Thanks for the review, Rowan. Adolf Galland started out in one of these babies. I wish a styrene maker would release one in 1/32nd scale. It's an important transition from interwar biplane to monoplane, and a lot of Luftwaffe pilots learned their chops on this one.

Cheers Bill

It'll happen... but, until then, the Alley Cat (ex-Montex) resin kit looks gorgeous.

Of course, the real mind-blower for us quarterscalers was the reveal in the flyer included with the book that GasPatch are doing a 1:48 kit! If it's anything like as good as their Salmson, it could seduce a lot of largescale modellers into downsizing!

All the best

Rowan
