Fertigmachen Zum Nachtgefecht !
Late in WWII, some Panther units were equipped with infra red night vision apparatus. The subject of this article is Tamiya's 1/35 Panther Ausf. G equipped with just such a device. Swedish modeler Mirko Bayerl has thoroughly researched this subject and takes you step by step through the construction of this fascinating kit. His recreation illustrates once again that modeling is truly an art, "I try to see the model tank in a context, a special scenario where the atmosphere, weather, time of year and a historical correctness helps me to create life and a story which has a soul to it."
King of The Road
Modeling "bad boy" Graham Dixey takes on Tamiya's 1/12 version of the Yamaha RoadStar. Check out this article for detailed instructions on how to get the most out of this precisely designed kit, from the brilliant chrome plated engine to the intricate suspension units. No enthusiast of motorcycle modeling should miss this informative article.
The Long Wait is Over...
Tamiya celebrates Michael Shumacher's Driver's Championship with the crimson Ferrari F1-2000. Mark Flys presents the winning car in this article and comments, "this is easily the best 1/20 scale F1 kit that Tamiya have made, and takes attention to detail to new heights." Don't miss this article for clear advice and full-color assembly pics of Tamiya's long-awaited F1-2000.
Year of the Snake
Eduard of the Czech Republic have brought out the Bell P-400 Airacobra. This aircraft was intended for the RAF, but later returned to the US for use in the Pacific to compensate for a shortage of combat aircraft. The Editor of TTMI gets his hands a little dirty and describes the best way to apply heavy weathering to an aircraft model. This one is not to be missed by aircraft aficionados.


Next issue of the Tamiya Model Magazine, No.86, is coming in June, 2001.
