AK Interactive is giving us not one, but two editions of their popular “Aces High” series of magazines. Each issue is full of great details on how to achieve great results when modelling military aircraft. Equally useful for Wargamers as well as military models and collectors.
The ninth issue of Aces High magazine is focusing almost exclusively on modelling military helicopters, a subject not yet covered in the series. Packed full of interesting articles, revealing dozens of tips and tricks to help you achieve the best results. In addition, this issue aims to help you to deal with any problems you may encounter during the various stages of your own build.
The modelling part of this magazine is complemented with a comprehensive article about the history of the military helicopters, illustrated with many excellent colour profiles and photos, perfect for giving you that little spark of inspiration.
As an addendum to the regular Aces High Magazine issue devoted to the military helicopters, AK is also releasing a special issue. This bonus magazine will focus primarily on one of the most famous military helicopters used around the world, the Mil Mi-24 Hind.
Using a large 1/35 scale kit as an example, editor Daniel Zamarbide guides you through the processes of construction, detailing, painting and weathering of this legendary helicopter. Not content to stop there, the magazine also contains information on how to create a vignette diorama to complement this model. This particular part is fully detailed and readily applicable to almost any miniature gaming or modelling projects, it even features a few products from the recently launched Dioramas range.
As always, the issue includes a concise article dealing with the history and development of the Mil Mi-24, attractive colour profiles, and a comprehensive walkthrough chapter. With heaps of photos of almost all the different variants of this great helicopter.
As a bonus, the final chapter even offers a look at how to paint highly detailed patterns and livery on your models. Giving options to the modellers out there who are looking for more than just the plain old Ocean Grey.
Both of these great looking magazines are set to arrive very soon, Pre-Orders are available now for interested parties. We’ll post up a more detailed look at these once they arrive in with us!
