I am quietly very proud of my collection of second hand British modelmaking magazines from the late 60's to early 80's. Lots of scrounging at flea markets and op-shops. Somehow second hand copies feel far more precious than brand new ones. Not sure why.

I especially love Scale Models magazine during their heyday in the 1970's. I think Ray Rimmel was the editor back then. Those were the days when super detailing meant doing the research and building it all yourself, not choosing the resin bits from a catalogue and dry brushing the heck out of it.

I've been carting my two wooden fruit crates full of vintage modelmaking mags around for a few decades now. I still like to pull ones out at random for a bit of a read. Or suddenly remember some article once read and feel compelled to spread them all out and flip through them one by one to find it (Mrs_Fiv hates that). I reckon I just about know all the covers off by heart. Don't think I've seen your one before though. Bags me after erco' when you're done!

I can't believe you got such a great deal on that. What a good find.

My mag was "Military Modeler" mostly from the 1980's.

Hey, MB_Avro, any interesting pages about this '65 Targa Florio roadster GT-40 from the cover? Planes and armour stuff are allright, but let us not forget about classic racing machinery. Photos, please http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif.

Cheers - Art

Hi Art,

All I could find was this:

Cover Picture: Sir John Whitmore, who recently announced his retirement from competetive driving, corrects a tail slide on the experimental open-bodied Ford GT which he and Bob Bondurant drove in the 1965 Targa Florio in Sicily.
