About Me

My photo
No Fixed Abode, Home Counties, United Kingdom
I’m a 51-year-old Aspergic CAD-Monkey. Sardonic, cynical and with the political leanings of a social reformer, I’m also a toy and model figure collector, particularly interested in the history of plastics and plastic toys. Other interests are history, current affairs, modern art, and architecture, gardening and natural history. I love plain chocolate, fireworks and trees but I don’t hug them, I do hug kittens. I hate ignorance, when it can be avoided, so I hate the 'educational' establishment and pity the millions they’ve failed with teaching-to-test and rote 'learning' and I hate the short-sighted stupidity of the entire ruling/industrial elite, with their planet destroying fascism and added “buy-one-get-one-free”. I also have no time for fools and little time for the false crap we're all supposed to pretend we haven't noticed, or the games we're supposed to play.

A is for Articles Archive

Further to the article on the Matador below (Airfix Magazine January 1983); this list may be of use to some of the war-gamer and/or modelling types...if anyone can help with similar info. from the missing editions, the entries with a question mark or other publications - please email me the information and I'll slot it in!

Airfix and other makes - Conversion articles – 1:76/72 – figures and AFV’s

Being a list of known articles on converting, detailing and scratch-building and/or paint-conversions of figures and vehicles in the smaller scales; 1:76/72, HO/OO, 20/25mm. Listed chronologically by era, alphabetically by publication and then by date of issue concerned.

So far a complete but chopped-up (by me, years ago!) set of Almark’s Modelworld, the first three years of Military Modelling and about two-thirds of Airfix magazines have been gone through, along with various other publications and all the Airfix Annuals. Qualifying criteria were that small scale figures or vehicles had been made, converted or had their era/unit/nationality changed through the use of paint. Additionally with the AFV’s, inclusion of plans/drawings in the smaller scales gained a listing.

Really excellent piece of work ! I've been contemplating doing this myself but too lazy to start it.

The only gaps I can see are (apologies if you've included but i've missed them):
1) the follow ups to the Airfix 8the Army in the Desert series.
2)The Aifix Magazine Guide series which have a number of plans and conversions in them e.g. British Tanks of WWII
3) Modelling Military Vehicles by Bruce Quarrie
4) Arika Korps in the Desert Airfix Magazine 1972
5) Article on Russian Infantry Heavy Weapons Airfix Magazine 1972(?)
I'll dig up the details in the next couple of days and email to you.

Yes! Do please - thanks...I'm too lazy too finish it! I have an almost complete run of MM, but only managed to do the first three years! There are also the Battle magazines and I suspect some of the earlier war-games mags would have had this sort of stuff in them?

I contemplated Terry Wise's book but it would have needed adding to every section!, likewise if you did the Railway modelling mags, the civi' section would be several miles long!!

Look forward to you eMail...
