Colour Art work by Mark Rolfe and Jan Polc
Author Paul Lucas
What to build next? Inspirational and original reference material has been a cornerstone of SAM since its inception, and 'Colour Conundrum' is designed specifically to offer the modeller something different. 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.
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.
Author Paul Lucas' work is rightly regarded as both valuable and unique in current aviation publishing, and we are proud to be able to present this selection, collected together in book form for the first time due to overwhelming demand from readers.

Fantasy Figures International is celebrating its first year as the number one independent magazine for all aspects of Fantasy and Sci-Fi miniature painting and modelling. When we launched the magazine in the
autumn of 2019 we were acutely aware that although there was plenty of stuff online, there was very little available in print that catered for miniature painter and modellers in these genres. Given the huge amount of interest in Gunpla, Maschinen Krieger, and science fiction modelling more generally, not to mention the huge growth in popularity of both fantasy and science fiction miniature painting, we thought the time was right to offer modellers a regular high-quality print magazine that catered for these interests.

A year or so, and seven issues, later we could have had no idea of the enthusiastic support the magazine would receive from hobbyists all across the world. A measure of that success is that five of our first six bi-monthly magazines have now completely sold out. With that in mind, and aware that new readers were discovering our magazine all the time, we made the decision to gather together some of our favourite articles from the first year of the magazine in this special collectors' edition Yearbook.

In it you'll find a good selection - we hope - of the articles from the across the various genres and modelling styles that we have featured in the first six magazines. I know that many of our readers missed these articles first time around so it's a great opportunity to get your hands on some classic articles from the likes of José Brito, José Luis Lopez Ruiz, Don Suratos, Roberto del Cima and Alex Varela. For those readers who have been with us from the very beginning - thank you - we also have a brand new article from the master of Maschinen Krieger, Bryan Krueger.

The first year of Fantasy Figures International has been a real team effort and we'd like to thank all of our contributors and advertisers and especially you, our readers and subscribers, for making it all possible. We've got some big plans for the next year and remain entirely committed to bringing you the very best in Fantasy and Sci-Fi miniature painting and modelling for many years to come. So, please do enjoy this Yearbook and look out for issue 8 of Fantasy Figures International which is now available.

Lineside photography in the North Country
Author Ian Edmondson

This issue is available as a Digital Edition SOON
Please click here to buy the digital version


'Northern Powerhouse' is the first in our railway bookazine series and showcases the lineside photography of Ian Edmondson. Born and raised next to the old Lostock Hall shed, Ian's dedication to getting 'that one shot' has led him to travel the North of England seeking out locations that have enabled him to combine the best of the spectacular scenery of Yorkshire, Cumbria, and his native Lancashire, with the most interesting and unusual of the freight and passenger workings that thread through the area.
Often rising before dawn and driving for hours to stake out a single freight working, Ian's passion both for the trains and the landscape around them finds focus in this remarkable collection of images that showcase not only his commitment and passion, but also reassures us that the railway lines that called out to the likes of Ivo Peters and Eric Treacy are still there, and have plenty to offer if we only know when and where to look.
It is the author's hope that this collection - presenting images of contemporary workings in locations still current - will assist and inspire other enthusiasts to go out and find for themselves the best that Britain's railways still have to offer .

Combat Colours no 1 - The Messerschmitt Bf109
  £15.00
The Messerschmitt Bf 109E on the Western Front
By Peter Scott Series Editor Neil Robinson
The objective of this book is to document the colour schemes carried by the Luftwaffe's Messerschmitt Bf 109E fleet on the 'Western Front' throughout 1940. This period encompassed the 'Phoney War' ('Sitzkrieg'); the assaults on Denmark and Norway; the offensive on France and the Low Countries; and the Battle of Britain.
Many other works have covered Luftwaffe colour schemes in detail, so by way of an introduction, I would like to explain how the colour schemes of the following profiles were established. This preamble therefore takes a slightly different perspective from previous works.

Combat Colours no 2 The Hawker Hurricane 1939 to 1945 in RAF

The Hawker Hurricane 1939 -1945 in RAF. Commonwealth and FAA service
By H C Bridgewater Series Editor Neil Robinson
The Hawker Hurricane entered service with the Royal Air Force some eighteen months before the start of the Second World War and was still on 'active service' at the end of the conflict. It can be said that the Hurricane fought in more campaigns, on more fronts, and in more countries and Theatres than any other British fighter during that war. This particular volume covers the camouflage schemes and markings carried by Hurricanes, in a variety of different Marks and sub-types, which served with the RAF, Commonwealth and Fleet Air Arm squadrons between September 1939 and August 1945. Because of the scope of the subject, the coverage given here is of
necessity relatively brief. Much research is still going on into the finer details of the aircraft camouflage and
markings used by the RAF and FAA during the Second World War period, so it is perhaps inevitable that some
of the information given here may subsequently need revision. That said, the contents of this book reflect
the extent of our collective knowledge of this subject at the present time of writing. I am indebted to Paul Lucas for
sharing some of his research with me; to Peter Scott for his excellent artwork; Andrew Thomas, Dick Ward
and Ian Carter for the photographs, and to the series editor, Neil Robinson who exercised great
patience and tact whilst convincing me that I could indeed write something of this nature.
