Warship Modeler #4 is out, a little late. Production was held up by the transfer of Classic Warships casting assets to Yankee Modelworks. The good thing is that now with out the burden of casting, Steve Wiper can now devote his full attention to publishing. 

Here is a look at what's contained within the pages.........

On the cover is Gary Kingzett's awesome USS New Jersey BB-16, also featured in a buildup feature and as part of the photo coverage of the 2005 IPMS Nationals. The Nationals coverage dominates this issue and also includes several other high quality photo's of other ships. Many of these are in full color.

Plastic and Resin kit reviews feature some of the latest new releases.

The Japanese Battleship Ise is the featured centerfold. The ship is shown as she was in 1941 and includes plenty of well drawn views including many extra hull sections.

The photo feature features some Australian, New Zealand, British, and American Cruisers of the early war period. Color photo's of the USS Ulhmann in dry-dock and the IJN Amagi round out the coverage.
More photo's from the Nationals are featured in the Model Gallery. I miss some of the regular features, but the extended coverage of the Nationals especially since I was unable to attend this time. 


This is a must have magazine for the ship modeler, written by a Warship Modeler for Warship Modelers!
