Scale Aircraft Modelling
In the face of a changing marketplace SAM has proved once again that it is the first, the best, and the most obvious choice for aircraft modellers.
With over four decades of publication behind it, and an editorial team committed to providing the broadest possible coverage of the hobby no other magazine has provided such stability and continuity through these challenging times, and we continue to build on this reputation month on month with a balanced content of news, reference material, and modelling to offer the reader not only choice but the inspiration on which to base it..

Our historical and reference pieces are widely respected for the coverage they offer, and collected by readers for their ground-breaking research.
Our monthly centre-section offers a one-stop precis of aircraft types based on the old 'Profile' series, but updated with colour artwork and scale drawings, while Colour Conundrum draws on original Air Ministry documentation to offer new ideas for well-covered subjects, often with unique insights into camouflage and markings.

From first-time builders to competition winners, SAM has something for everyone, showcasing techniques and products, and demonstrating skills and ideas that can turn an everyday model into a show-stopper. Always inclusive, our core modelling content is aimed at all skill levels and disciplines. There is no 'right' way to build a model. We each assimilate skills and ideas to suit our own tastes, and no publication is better attuned to what its readers want and need from a magazine. Make SAM your choice!

British Railways Illustrated
Now approaching its 30th year and long known by its cheerful acronym 'BRILL', British Railways Illustrated is known and respected for the depth and quality of its historically-based articles. Focussing on the nationalised and early modernisation era of British Railways from 1948 to the 1970s, any aspect of vintage railway operations is grist to the mill as long as it is well-researched and written.
The camera, we are told, never lies, but it can be 'economical with the truth, so BRILL's team of contributors paint a bigger picture, with extended and informed captions bringing to life the classic black and white photography that constitutes the bulk of its content. Featuring a colour cover, 56 pages of text and, typically, 60-70 high quality black and white images, most issues include maps and plans/diagrams where appropriate. 'History with a good helping of nostalgia' is its hallmark with some humour thrown in. .

Modern Railway News is now inserted into the print copies of BRILL.

Railway Bylines now in its 26th year.
Companion magazine to British Railways Illustrated, Railway Bylines, now in its 26th year, focuses on the backwaters of our railway system, bringing to life long-gone industrial systems, country branches, narrow gauge and mineral lines.
With a wide-ranging editorial remit the magazine covers the rolling stock, buildings and infrastructure, and its content is largely focussed on pre-1970s subjects, although material is planned and programmed for its interest and rarity and frequently strays outside these parameters.

Featuring a colour cover, 56 pages of text and, typically, 60-70 high quality black and white images, most issues include maps and plans/diagrams where appropriate.
The research skills and erudition of our team of contributors ensures an informed and enjoyable read with a light touch that matches its often out-of-the-way and off-beat subjects.

Warpaint no 136 - OUT NOW
Warpaint 136 - Airspeed Oxford and Consul
By William Harrison
 
With more than 8,750 built the Oxford was a well thought-out design that was based on their Airspeed Envoy, a similar shaped twin-engine executive aircraft that was used in the early 1930s but the more advanced design of the Oxford suited the military requirement for a three-seat training aircraft.
The Oxford was a low-wing cantilever monoplane of advanced design and was produced for the training of pilots in handling modern, multi-engine bomber aircraft. Wooden construction was employed throughout making for a simpler design and easier repairs. Provision was made for instruction in pilot training, aerial photography, navigation, aerial photography, and bombing training.
An Armstrong-Whitworth gun turret could be installed for training in aerial gunnery. After the War the Consul was conceived as a small airliner, chiefly converted from ex-military Oxfords with more than 160 rebuilt. These quickly sold to potential airline operators and were eventually used in many countries, some changing hands four or five times. The Oxford and the Consul were relatively safe flying machines and with thousands of bomber pilots undertaking their flying training in the type it played a major part in the RAF's war effort, and is widely regarded as a design the manufacturers could be proud of.
This book is written by William Harrison with artwork by Sam Pearson.
*  52 pages  £18.00
* 10 pages of Colour Profiles
* detailed plans
* Over 150 many never seen before images

Colour Conundrum by Paul Lucas
Guideline Publications is pleased to announce the second 'Colour Conundrum Compendium'.
With this further release the Author focuses on three themes: the RAF in the Second World War, the Post War Fleet Air Arm, and related products of the United States' aviation industry that are intertwined with both the other subject areas.
To this has been added a completely new chapter on the B-17Cs of 90 Sqn in 1941, which along with the 4 pages of updates presenting new findings on some of the subjects, makes for an additional 12,000 previously unpublished words.
Quoting extensively from primary sources, the articles also provide valuable insight into the organisation and administration of the air force, and the many thousands of documents and memos that passed from office to office behind the scenes, providing background and understanding that add depth and focus to a model, as well as an opportunity to understand why a specific colour scheme may have been either selected or rejected.
With original research based on surviving records in the National Archive at Kew the aim of these articles is to throw fresh light upon some old questions, to challenge some long held views on aircraft camouflage and markings, and to pose new questions that had arisen as a result of the research to which the answers were not yet known.
