Build and Convert #6
Aviation Classics Part1
Edited by Gary Hatcher

Once again Build & Convert takes a journey through the Scale Aviation archives, this time bringing you a selection of aviation legends in scale, and offering a real cross-section of material from the best-selling magazine. Ranging from the Avro York to the Sopwith Pup, with rotary-winged and civil aviation for good measure, this latest compendium reflects not only the breadth and diversity of the magazine’s contents, but also the eclectic nature of the Airfix catalogue, from which legendary repository the featured kits are drawn.
