Xtreme Modelling 9 Winter 2005 Issue

by G. C. Davidson

Kicking off their Third Year, Xtreme Modelling Issue 9 gives us a great issue with some 60 pages of beautifully photographed, full colour articles, all printed in a handy landscape format.

This articles in this issue focus on modellers and exhibits from Euromilitaire, and includes armour models such as a Panther Prototype (DB) by Carlos Bravo and Joaquin Gazquez; a winter SdKfz 234/1 by Jorge Lopez, a small scale SAM-2 by Ricardo Ruiz, and a post-war British DUKW by Jorge Lopez and Mig.

Also included is Per Olav Lund's stunning Minenhund diorama - a silver medal winner at Euro, and one that we got to see unfold on the Constructive Comments DG here at ML. Last up is a figure painting exercise by Jaume Ortiz and Daniel Alfonsa, who present a detailed article on painting the face and uniform of a German Tank Crewman – no less than 34 steps are illustrated in this excellent reference. While all the articles may seem a bit "light" on text descriptions, this is more than made up for in the many step-by-step photographs all the authors use to describe their techniques.

The issue concludes with show pictures from both Euromilitaire 2004 and Euroma 2004.
